The Last Polka charts the rise and fall of that fabulous Lutonian two-some, the Shmenge Brothers. John Candy is Yosh Shmenge, and Eugene Levy is Stan Shmenge. "And ve are...der Happy Vanderers." This hilarious mocu-mentary traces the early lives of the Shmenge boys, their first successes on local Canadian television, and the ultimate dissolution of their accordian-dominated polka band. We are also permitted a few peeks at the Shmenges' private lives with their families, as they celebrate such venerated Lutonian customs as "The Exchanging of the Socks".

A parody of Martin Scorcese's documentary, The Last Waltz (about the breakup of the rock group The Band), this is a one-of-a-kind, pricelessly funny gem. Don't miss it!
