The Last Polka (The Schmenges) 1985 DVD (Playable in North America - The US, Canada, Mexico, etc.) Color.
Starring: John Candy, Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, Rick Moranis, Dave Thomas.
The Last Polka charts the rise and fall of that fabulous Lutonian two-some, the Schmenge Brothers. John Candy is Yosh Schmenge, and Eugene Levy is Stan Schmenge. "And ve are...der Happy Vanderers." This hilarious mocumentary traces the early lives of the Schmenge 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 Schmenges' 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!
