A Target Parachute

It is doubtful and very dangerous to think that a thousand Target bags would operate in the same manner as a carefully constructed parachute - although one thousand Target bags attached to your rear end would make for a great Halloween costume. Please don't try this one.

Answer

Ask Mythbusters.

Answer

The bags would not have enough area to open properly. The cords attaching them to you would increase total mass. Even real parachutes fail to open sometimes, what makes you think all the bags will open?

Answer

It would slow your plummet for a bit, but then it would probably fold over or get tangled, leaving you as a splat on the pavement

Better Answer

try it, it will work perfectly

Answer

It would work PERFECTLY if you're suicidal

Answer

It would work if you apply all the laws of quantum physics and you have written your will. And you have no problem with being flat.
