Judge Thomas, this was a pretty good review, except for one thing. You did not mention why this movie was made. This was basically a star vehicle for Mark Blankfield, the breakout star of the show Fridays.
What was Friday's kids? Well, long before MAD TV tried its half-assed attempted at challenging SNL, ABC had a west coast show called Fridays. Blankfield did a sketch creatively called the Crazy Pharmacist sketch. You can view it here:http://youtube.com/watch?v=Z6FYVRn2_cY
Basically he did this same sketch for about fwo or three years. His "just take a pill" became an annoying catch phrase. Fortunately, the plug was pulled and Fridays went off the air, forcing their only two good assets, Michael Richards and Larry David to do something constructive.
The only redeeming thing about Fridays were the bands. The Clash pre Combat Rock, the Plasmatics, Devo with treadmills, the Stray Cats first American show, and the Jam shortly before Peter Weller was consumed by his own rectum.
