Besides Landis, directors Joe Dante, Carl Gottlieb, Peter Horton and Robert K. Weiss take turns doing sketches – Weiss’ Amazon Women on the Moon 1950s parody of bad sci-fi pics being the one that was stretched piecemeal throughout the film in a semi-successful attempt to hold this anthology together as one comedic work.

Eighteen other segs fill up the pic’s 85 minutes, some mercifully short like Weiss Silly Pate while Landis Hospital is one of those slow-building, totally zany bits where the chuckles grow as the situation gets more ridiculous and you wish there was more.
