PRIME TIME (1977) ** ½

This is a hit or miss Kentucky Fried Movie style spoof. The best sketches include familiar faces, like Warren Oates and Robert Ridgely in the Charles Whitman Invitational, where they go up into a bell tower and pick people off with a sniper rifle. Another funny sketch stars Fred (Hunter) Dryer in a gay awareness spot. Some sketches are stupid (the Charlie’s Angels parody), some are just tasteless (the cokehead kiddie show host featuring Kinky Friedman), but more often than not it’s pretty funny. The linking segments (the sketches are part of a television airwaves take over) are weak but there’s some funny stuff here and there. Some of the recognizable names in the cast include Harris Yulin, Stephen Furst and Harry Shearer.
