National Lampoon's Gold Diggers

There are certain things that guarantee craptacular entertainment at the box office: Pauly Shore in the cast list, the word "Dude" in the title. But the one surefire declaration that a movie totally sucks is the use of the prefix "National Lampoon's." With the exception of National Lampoon's Animal House and National Lampoon's Vacation (neither of which is ever referred to as such), the selection is a dismal lot. National Lampoon's Dorm Daze, National Lampoon's Repli-Kate, National Lampoon's Senior Trip, National Lampoon's Class Reunion, National Lampoon's Golf Punks, National Lampoon's Last Resort, National Lampoon's Van Wilder: Are any of these ringing any bells? I didn't think so. Here, two losers marry a couple of rich old spinsters in hopes of killing them and striking it rich. It's as stupid and offensive as you think.
