National Lampoon Goes to the Movies is a 1982 comedy film that is made up of three different short films, each one directed by a different person. The three stories are all very different from each other, but they are all intended to be humorous and irreverent. The film stars Peter Riegert, Diane Lane, and Candy Clark. The first story is called "Municipalians". It follows the story of two city workers who are tasked with cleaning up the streets of New York City. However, they soon discover that the job is not as easy as they thought it would be. Along the way, they encounter a variety of eccentric characters, including a woman who walks around the city with a briefcase full of money.

The second story is called "Success Wanters". It focuses on a struggling actor who is trying to make it in Hollywood. He is constantly going to auditions and meeting with agents, but he just can't seem to catch a break. One day, he decides to take matters into his own hands and tries to create his own movie. However, things don't go quite as planned, and he ends up getting into some trouble.

The final story is called "Growing Yourself". It follows the story of a scientist who is trying to grow a human tooth. He spends all of his time working in his lab, but he is constantly being interrupted by his noisy neighbors. Meanwhile, his assistant is trying to help him with his project, but she is also distracted by her own problems.

Overall, National Lampoon Goes to the Movies is a somewhat uneven film that is hit-or-miss in terms of its humor. Some of the jokes land well, while others fall flat. However, the film does have a certain charm and sense of irreverence that will likely appeal to fans of the National Lampoon brand. Additionally, the performances by the three leads are all solid, and they help to make the somewhat thin material more enjoyable. If you're looking for a silly, irreverent comedy that doesn't take itself too seriously, National Lampoon Goes to the Movies might be worth a watch.
