Storyline
Because of his salacious language, late-night radio advice-show host Leon Phelps, along with his sweet and loyal producer Julie, is fired from his Chicago gig. They can't find another job. About that time, two things happen: he gets a letter from a wealthy former lover who offers to take care of him (but she doesn't sign her real name, so Leon, an inveterate Casanova, has no idea who she is), and a group of angry cuckolds, all of whom have surprised their wives in flagrante delicto with Leon (who has a distinctive tattoo on his booty), are closing in, armed and dangerous. Can he find the sugar mommy and escape the wrath of the mob of husbands? What about Julie?

User Review

Fun

Rating:

I'm probably one of the few who thought this movie was hilarious. I
mean, how can you NOT laugh at Will Ferrell and Lee Evans breaking into
a song about how they're going to beat up the title character ("the
bastard's going to pay!") The movie gets funnier and stranger in the
second hour, when anything resembling a plot was apparently tossed out
the window. Leon Phelps is a unique Saturday Night Live creation. If
you don't expect much (as I did going in), you may just find yourself
in stitches. Granted, this is not the stuff of classic comedy, but it's
not the "one star" comedy that most critics called it.
