Entertaining small film.
1 September 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This film reminds me in some ways of what the early 70's TV series "Love American Style" might have been like if it was a R rated theatrically released film! Harmless overall, laugh out loud funny and even has it's share of low-brow wit like a John Waters film! This movie is broken into three mini segments that don't directly relate to each other with the exception of the "introduction" by comic "Professor" Irwin Corey! Segment one stars 60's comic and real life protest presidential candidate Pat Paulsen in a tale about a "life size" doll! Segment two stars Jerry Orbach as a writer with writer's block and his relationships with women and my personal favorite Segment Three! Segment Three stars Zero Mostel in a insanely funny double roll as a mobster and the President of the USA and the great Estelle Parsons as the First Lady! To say much more would give too much away! This is not a major classic by any means, but it has it's great moments especially in the third segment! Segment three is especially worth a look if you like absurd political satire from the 70's in a style that might remind you at times of the work of John Waters!
