I saw this movie once, in 1977, and I still think of it at times. The humor was ahead of it's time then, and still funny now.

Are the players crazy? Or are they doing the only thing they can to cope in an insane world? Some of their choices, especially when it comes to moving, appear out-of-the-ordinary.
