This Is SOME Vitamin Pill!
26 May 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This is a takeoff on those old snake-oil salesmen who used to roam the Old West, peddling tonics that would cure everything. (Most of it was just alcohol.) Here, the PP is selling "Dr. Phinks Vitamin Pink" which is simply a vitamin pill.

The pill works! We see an old man take one, and the next minute he chasing some young chick around town. Then a "tired" homeless-looking guy on his last legs, takes several pills and - voilà - he turns back into a combination Superman-bank robber. In a funny scene, the thief gives some pills to his horse and the horse suddenly sprints away from the trailing posse.

Now, the Panther is in a jam, because he's responsible for this crime. The sheriff pins a badge of him with the job to go capture the crook. What ensues isn't as funny as the previous scenes because too much is repeated as the robber robs the "Second National Bank" followed by the "Third National Bank."

Our vitamin salesman has the answer, however, to stopping the bad guy, and it's fairly funny.
