Rating:
R
The Onion Movie is a film by the same people that brought the world the popular fake newspaper The Onion, America's Finest News Source. The movie is structured as a series of sketches loosely tethered to a plot about anchorman Norm Archer (Len Cariou). Archer tries to maintain his journalistic integrity as The Onion newsroom is taken over by a behemoth corporate parent, Global Tetrahedron. Action films are mocked in a trailer featuring a hero (Steven Seagal) whose main form of defense is to punch his enemies in their nether regions. Melissa Cherry (Sarah McElligott) is a Britney Spears-like pop singer who sings outrageously suggestive lyrics, with Kevin Federline, Spears' ex-husband, making a cameo as one of Cherry's backup dancer. The Onion Movie hearkens back to the raucous sketch comedies of the 1970s like "The Groove Tube" and "The Kentucky Fried Movie," and was written by Robert D. Siegel and Todd Hanson.
