Odd, quietly wacky, compelling and underrated
29 October 2003 | by (San Jose, California) – See all my reviews

Like "Scenes From a Class Struggle in Beverly Hills," this is a movie about a totally dysfunctional wealthy family. But where the former tries to take itself seriously, "Lounge People" revels in each and every inane vignette. There is some plot to string this together, and some people may not like this movie because of the thin plot, but individual pieces can be real gems. For instance, the sequence where Christine Ebersol's bored wife character, Cynthia, is trying to seduce BD Wong's character, Billy, by the pool. The looks on his face alone are worth the price of admission.

Buck Henry is perfect as Lewis Louis. It is the sort of role he would write for himself and at which he excels. Bored, bumbling, worried about his health, and completely sane in a crazy way.

As of late 2003, I haven't seen this on any of the free channels or pay channels for at least 2 years, but I have my TiVo set to get it when it comes back on. Set yours!
