* EveryoneHatesMimes: Played for laughs and drama. Shakes and his friends, as party clowns, hate mimes for some unknown reason, and if they see them will assault them. Shakes, at least, [[AnAesop gets better]].

Creating YMMV page, correcting confusing sentence in intro
Shakes is on the verge of getting fired, as his drunken shenanigans often end up ruining the kids' birthday parties he performs at. On top of that, his alcoholism is messing up his relationship with his girlfriend Judy, a [[FanServiceWithASmile waitress in the clown bar Shakes frequents]] and aspiring professional bowler. When he passes out at this bar for party clowns him and his two friends frequent, he winds up being framed for the murder of his boss. Said friends and Judy help him evade the law and two witnesses to the actual murder (who chase after him) as Shakes, while posing as a mime, finds out who's really responsible (at first he thinks he actually did it and was just too drunk to remember) and helps bring him to justice. Meanwhile, Shakes' friends realize Shakes has an alcohol problem, and [[NailedToTheWagon help/force him to quit]].

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Quite a bit, including Muddy Waters and NRBQ

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: Was commonly rented by moms who later returned to the video store with the video and a good mad expression on. Despite the R-rating, and Julie Brown being on the cover lying on her stomach [[MaleGaze in a way that allows you to look directly down her cleavage,]] many thought this was kiddie fare. (You'd think the cleavage on the cover would clue them in).

* FreudianExcuse: Shakes' for being [[TheAlcoholic a drunk]] is that, when he was a child, he witnessed [[spoiler: his father getting killed by an elephant, presumably while working as a circus clown]]
