Yes, after almost 40 years this movie is a little dated; but, when it came out it was hilariously off-the-wall! The movie, when it was released was a refreshing, non-conformist poke-in-the-eye to the prigs and prudes of the day.

And then there is the interplay among the members of Dr. Fassbender's and his patients and Dr. Fassbender and his family.
