| Stupid Movie With Funny Jokes
Ratko is the clueless but sincere son of a dictator who goes to college in America and learns that his father is a dictator, winning the heart of the beautiful vegetarian in the process. It's a typical cheap-laugh comedy, based on the assumption that everyone in power is corrupt. It's also a National Lampoon comedy that depends on lots of buxom women, clueless men and jokes that get bleeped over continually on cable TV, meant to appeal to post-slacker teens, but some of the jokes are quite funny. I enjoy the blue jokes in which a group of clueless girls describe someone as "the Italian Burt Reynolds" (do kids today even know who Burt Reynolds is?) and proceed do do the dozens on each other by repetition of "You're so skanky that....".

Most of those are bleeped over, but the gist gets through.

I doubt that if you wish any depth, insight or wit you will enjoy this movie, but the occasional funny joke will keep you watching until the end.
