Uncle Sam- William Lustig
Jody's uncle who coincidentally is named Sam gets sent home in a coffin. Jody finds out that his uncle was kind of a douche and maybe he shouldn't worship this hero(chefs definition of hero is a crazy person who runs into danger and doesn't die so he gets a medal and is told not to be crazy anymore).That is really all you need to know plot wise. What you do need to know is that there is a kid in a wheelchair who is some kinda crazy wise man, Chef is crazy and has a wooden leg, they hang a kid like a flag( I would salute that flag, douche on a pole), and they cook up some head on the smoker. These are just a few of the highlights of this classic film from the decade where rotary phones were still on their last leg.
Not perfect but a fun ride and who can not love Bill Lustig and Larry Cohen teaming up?
