Critical Rating: AAA
The Horneymooners, Part II is a competently made spoof that benefits from strong performances by Ron Jeremy as Alf Cramdon (he has Gleasons’ mannerisms down pat, if not the stomach) and Shanna McCullough and Stephanie Rage as put-upon wives Prixie and Phallus. The video plays like an old TV episode, with Alf suspecting Phallus of infidelity, and Horton’s (Randy Paul) discovery of a novel method of spying on the girls. The “threadbare” production values don’t seem as glaring when the set is supposed to look tacky, and the experienced stars know when to play for laughs and when to get down and dirty. I can’t say it’s the greatest, but, baby Horneymooners, Part II is pretty good. Cute packaging will make it bang, zoom off the shelves.
