Stuck On You (1984) from Tuna

Stuck on You (1984) is another early Troma release, this one starring Professor Erwin Corey as the angel Gabrial, come to earth as the judge in a palimony case with an eye to saving the relationship. 
The film is a series of vignettes, some of the couple and highlights of their relationship, others historical, and used by Corey to illustrate his points. The film was intended as a satire of current events and women's liberation. If the following scenes sound funny to you, you are as demented as I am and will enjoy this film: 


Virginia Penta is topless while they are body-painting
  • While body painting each other, Virginia Penta and Mark Mikulski super glue themselves together, and hop past a real estate agent showing the house across the street on the way to the hospital. 
  • Mikulski works for an egg farmer, and tried to increase laying by making a chicken porno. 
  • They call AAA to use the tow truck hoist to get Penta's tight jeans on. 
  • During the opening introduction with Kaufman, the subliminal message "pig fucker" flashes several times.

Professor Irwin Corey was never a personal favorite, and some of the humor was too low-brow even for me.

The People Vote ...

  • With their votes ... IMDB summary: IMDb voters score it 4.1
IMDb guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of excellence, about like three and a half stars from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm watchability, about like two and a half stars from the critics. The fives are generally not worthwhile unless they are really your kind of material, about like two stars from the critics. Films under five are generally awful even if you like that kind of film, equivalent to about one and a half stars from the critics or less, depending on just how far below five the rating is.

My own guideline: A means the movie is so good it will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not good enough to win you over if you hate the genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an open mind about this type of film. C means it will only appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if you love the genre. F means that the film is not only unappealing across-the-board, but technically inept as well.

Based on this description, this film is a C-.
