Carrot Top's masterpiece
Advertisements [?]
"Chairman of the Board," showing now on WGN, for the masochists and connoiseurs of bad cinema among us.

Technically, the thing is a shambles. Director Alex Zamm can't set up a gag to save his life, routinely putting the camera in the exact wrong place for a joke to work, and editing is so clunky it takes several beats for characters to react to incidents. In one scene, Carrot Top refers to Thorne-Smith's character, Natalie, as "Courtney," a mistake no one apparently cared about enough to correct. For what it's worth, the film gives Thorne-Smith a centerpiece scene in which she belches loud enough to be measured on the Richter scale. And the explosive finale turns on a shirt that makes flatulent sounds.
If Carrot Top is indeed destined for celluloid stardom, look for a lot of film critics' and movie projectionists' jobs to open up in the coming years.
