Description: Comedy writers David and Jerry Zucker and Jim Abrahams of Airplane and The Naked Gun fame got their start at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, when they formed a theatrical group known as The Kentucky Fried Theater. The Kentucky Fried Movie is based on the KFT's gag-filled theatrical skits. Including well-known stars such as Bill Bixby, Donald Sutherland, Tony Dow, George Lazenby and Henry Gibson, the film has over 22 different segments of varying lengths. Some are seconds long. Longer segments include such highlights as: Zinc Oxide, which spoofs school educational films; Cleopatra Schwartz, a spoof of female blaxploitation action films, whose heroine is married to a rabbi; Sex Record, which depicts a couple who are attempting to follow the step-by-step instructions of a how-to-do-it record; Catholic High School Girls In Trouble, and A Fistful of Yen, (the longest episode), which is an elaborate spoof of martial-arts films.~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide
