The rock'n'roll music video-esque performance is a spoof of Robert Palmer's popular music video for his hit song Addicted To Love, although other musicians like Elton John and Michael Jackson are spoofed in the scene as well. See more »

Father Mayii exorcised a possessed child named Nancy 17 year's ago- but now she is repossessed while watching the TV. So Father Brophy tries to get Father Mayii out of retirement to help him perform Nancy's exorcism and also it's going to be played on live TV to boost ratings for some has-beens.
This a reasonably okay spoof on 'The Exorcist' that has it fair share of hits and misses, led by Leslie Nielsen as the head priest and the one who is telling the story about the repossession to a class of students. The film itself isn't great as a whole, as you got a couple good scenes and one-liners that standout from the rest- but you got a couple scenes and lines that are incredibly in bad taste or just lame.
One thing I noticed that some gag's were borrowed in the opening sequence of the awfully bad Scary Movie 2, with the 'The Exorcist' part being the only amusing thing about that movie.
The story itself is weak and really of no importance, as it's the gags that are the main attraction, with one gag or joke after another- though some of the gags start getting really tiresome and repetitive halfway through the film. So because of the one-idea film, it drags towards the end, making it feel longer than its 80mins-running time.
The performances are nothing special, Leslie Nielsen has most of the funny parts as the retired Father Jebedaiah Mayii who makes a comeback to face his old demons (in many amusing ways) and also Ned Betty as Ernest Weller has his comical moments as the TV host. Linda Blair reprises her role that made her big- but this time mocking her performance in 'The Exorcist', as the possessed women named Nancy Aglet, while she was quite funny at first especially with the hilarious scenes involving her family- but after a while it got kind of stale and Anthony Starke plays the young unexperienced Father Luke Brophy, who is basically wooden and is pretty light of the laughs.
This is worth a look if you want to see a stupid mockery of a classic film- but still it's quite forgettable and if you want a good comedy in the same vein with Leslie Nielsen watch the Naked Gun films instead.
