Just a quick correction: I believe that Christopher Guest is the only
ex-National Lampooner involved in this film. The other two main contrib-
utors, David Lander and Harry Shearer, worked together previously in The
Credibility Gap (a radio/record comedy group), and separately as "Lenny"
(in Laverne and Shirley) and on Saturday Night Live, respectively.

Not quite. I seem to remember reading that Joey (Tony?) Hendra (a former
Lampoon editor) was somehow involved in the film. For those who remember
the trend-setting parody "Not the New York Times" of about six years back,
Hendra appeared as Pope John Paul John Paul II in the photographs.
