Producer Lorne Michaels was allegedly the model for Mike Myers' Dr. Evil. It's becoming clear that his repeated abduction of SNL skits in order to stretch them out on the rack and loose them on the public is part of some nefarious plan. The victim this time is Leon Phelps (Meadows), a stuck-in-the-'70s late-night talk show host who dispenses inappropriate romantic advice. Raised by Hugh Hefner but banished for sleeping with the wrong bunny, Leon soon becomes banished from his radio gig, too. He eases the pain by seducing other men's wives, leading to the formation of an anti-Leon posse. Meanwhile, his faithful ex-producer Julie (Parsons) inexplicably sticks by his side hoping to tame Leon's wild ways. In the end, Leon is converted to a one-lady man, and the comic possibilities of this lame flick are squandered.
