Tilson: Mr. Meyers, can you tell us the basic theme of Oedipus?
Moose Myers: Uh... yeah. That's the guy who had something wrong with his eyes? Yeah. He had a problem with his eyes.
[laughs]
Tilson: Miss Knight, perhaps you can help Mr. Meyers with the theme of the Oedipus legend?
Miriam Knight: Easy. A guy can't kiss his mother on the mouth and get away with it.

NOW'S THE TIME TO RESURRECT THIS MEMORABLE FILM!
17 October 2004 | by (Orange County, CA) – See all my reviews

I'm pleasantly surprised to see that others remember this intriguing movie like I do! It has stuck in my mind ever since I saw it in high school.

I would love to share it with my daughters. High schoolers would especially appreciate it. All of us who were made fun of would have secretly loved to get revenge on our tormentors. If anyone hears about it being released on DVD/video, please let me know!

I'd love to buy it. Maybe we can start a campaign by writing to Joan Rivers? Does anyone remember what station sponsored it? With all the reality shows about makeovers, now would be the perfect time to resurrect this film!
