On a recent episode of The Rosie O’Donnell Show, James Bass and Joey Fatone of ’NSync chatted with the show’s host about Disney’s upcoming On the Line. In the film, Fatone plays Bass’s loveable farting friend. According to Fatone, additional farts were added in post-production due to the positive audience reaction to his initial fart. Rosie O’Donnell replied, “Everyone loves farts!” Thanks Rosie, but I’ll beg to differ. Fans of flatulence may react kindly to Disney’s offensive Corky Romano, which proudly celebrates the fart as a means of enacting familial revenge. Corky Romano (Chris Kattan) is an aspiring veterinarian forced to don F.B.I. garbs in order to destroy evidence that links his father, Pops Romano (Peter Falk), to a series of kidnappings and murders. Corky goes undercover, accidentally becomes an ace F.B.I. man and manages to fart on the faces of his oppressive brothers, latent homosexual Peter (Chris Penn) and illiterate Paulie (Peter Berg). The spiritless and uninspired Corky Romano is dead on arrival. Minus a mildly humorous cocaine-inspired scenario, the film doesn’t even have the benefit of being adapted from an SNL sketch. As speed-freak Kattan raises his buttocks in Penn and Berg’s direction, he forcefully releases the tiniest of farts. That sound, ladies and gentleman, is that of Kattan’s movie career smashing into a brick wall.
