: The Road to Wellville
Strange film. I’d heard a lot about this and the premise sounded interesting: set in the early 1900’s, it’s based on the real-life of Dr. Kellogg (who invented Corn Flakes) and the strange cures offered at his sanitarium. Unfortunately, most of the humor is of a scatalogical nature, making it uncomfortable viewing. It’s not really funny… or is it? I guess that depends on your point of view. I found it more interesting from the historical perspective, and felt the plot was predictable and the comedy lame. Worth seeing just for it’s uniqueness, however.
