More Info IMDb

Don Knotts was comedy in the shape of a man. An underweight, neurotic wreck of a man who had the ability to make both children and oldsters laugh ‘til they puked.

Through his celebrated role on THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW and multiple features like THE INCREDIBLE MR. LIMPET and THE GHOST AND MR. CHICKEN, Knotts established an immortal legacy of uproarious family entertainment. BUT! His funniest film of all is criminally forgotten, shoved under the rug because it was too shocking for audiences to endure!

No foolin’; in 1969, America’s most beloved G-rated entertainer unleashed his comic masterwork, in which he plays the reluctant overlord of a massive porn empire! See the perennial virginal goofball knee-deep in lady-lust, cowering on his heart-shaped bed as dame after dame throw themselves at his trembling, tiny frame!

It’s a chaotic typhoon of sex, organized crime, sex, rock n’ roll and S!E!X! I personally say THE LOVE GOD ties with PEE-WEE’S BIG ADVENTURE as the funniest movie of all time, but legendary silver screen spelunker Joe Bob Briggs will be on hand to lay out the power behind the most gut-busting Hollywood film you’ve probably never seen.
