Something always felt a bit out of place for me in Martin Scorsese’s brilliant “The King of Comedy”, just released on Blu-ray for the first time. I couldn’t put my finger on it but chalked it up to it being thematically ahead of its time in its investigation of the cult of personality that defines modern entertainment.

Here is the plot description for “An American Carol”:
The American spirit is celebrated in the outrageous and totally irreverent comedy “An American Carol” from David Zucker: the master of questionable taste (“Airplane!,” “The Naked Gun,” “Scary Movie 3” and “Scary Movie 4”).
In “An American Carol,” a cynical and anti-American “Hollywood” filmmaker sets out on a crusade to abolish the Fourth of July holiday. He is visited by three spirits who take him on a hilarious journey in an attempt to show him the true meaning of America.
