    This one is a good laugh - with a great soundtrack...

    The Party Animal
    R, Comedy, 1hr 18min
    1983
    Starring: Matthew Causey, Timothy Carhart, Robin Harlan ...more

    " As far as sex comedies go, 1983's Party Animal has it all -- sex, laughs and plenty of sexy '80s glitz. Despite its main protagonist being a hedonistic hornball with little to no redeeming values, the flick still succeeds, thanks to plenty of surreal sight gags and a slamming soundtrack. Featuring choice cuts from the Buzzcocks, early R.E.M., the Fleshtones, and the Untouchables (among many others), Party Animal surprises the viewer with each musical cue and gives it an edge that sets it apart from its kin from that era. Classic moments include an off-the-wall scene with an oversized rocket sex toy, while the punk party clip features the cool nerd ingesting some of the most ludicrous amounts of drugs ever seen in a teen comedy (including coke lines cut from a butcher knife). The movie also gets points for the weird ambiguity attached to the Devil character that bookends the flick as well as an out-of-nowhere finale that puts a surreal touch to such a genre piece as this. With dialogue that nails at least a half dozen delicious memorable quotes, Party Animal cements itself in the pantheon of early '80s sex comedies and proves to be a forgotten gem for those that like shameless T&A flicks with a heavy party attitude. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, All Movie Guide"

    It has been a long time since I saw this movie, but it left a lasting impression on my (at that thime) young and unspoilt mind:

    La Grande Bouffe

    From amazon.com:

    Plot Outline A group of men hire some prostitutes and go to a villa in the countryside. There, they engage in group sex and resolve to eat themselves to death.

    Marco Ferreri's greatest international success, "La Grande Bouffe" scandalized audiences when it was released in 1973. Audiences were shocked by its tale of four world-weary middle-aged men (superbly portrayed by Marcello Mastroianni, Ugo Tognazzi, Michel Piccoli and Philippe Noiret) who decide to gorge themselves to death in one final orgiastic weekend full of gourmet food, call girls and a hefty, lusty schoolteacher. This blackly humorous parable of modern society's collapse won the Cannes Film Festival's International Critics Award. The New York Times called it "vulgar vaudeville on an epic scale...a mordant, chilling, hilarious dirty movie." Nearly 30 years later, it continues to challenge audiences' sensibilities and test the limits of shockability.
    Needless to say, if & when I grow tired of life, this is the way I intend to go.......
    Any error in tact, fact or spelling is purely due to transmissional errors...

    Shakes the Clown: Comedian Bobcat Goldthwait wrote, directed and stars in this minor cult favorite about the trials of an alcoholic clown trying to make it in the cruel show business world of Palookaville, U.S.A. In between beating up mimes and escaping from brutal rodeo clowns, Shakes (Goldthwaite) gets framed for the murder of his boss.

    I watched the Constant Gardener tonight - hardly obscure, but I just thought I'd gatecrash to say that I thought that it was very good. Ralph Fiennes is excellent.

    Jacobs Ladder Great film with Tim Robbins. Took me a couple times of paying close attention before I realized what the movie was all about. bears rewatching many times. Listen to Danny Aiello as his Chiropratcor; seems his role in the movie was to give some hints to the plot of the movie.

    "Salvador": Being expats, you will appreciate this movie more than the average person. Two guys drive from the US to El Salvador to photograph the war and also do a bit of drinking and whoring. James Wood was nominated for an Academy Award for his performance. The movie tanked at the box office, but I think it is one of Oliver Stone's best films.

    Miami Blues with Alec Baldwin and Fred Ward. Baldwin plays a wound up tight ex-con who starts a crime wave after stealing a cop's badge and dentures. Fred Ward is the cop looking to bring him in. The tension between Baldwin and Ward the first time they meet is very high with comedy tossed in as they both try to maintain their cools while they size each other up and feel each other out. They both know what's what but they aren't ready to throw down just yet. Baldwin does a good job of portraying a man who is just keeping it under control and who is very focused on crime as his livelyhood. I laughed enough to call it a dark comedy.
