Ray 'Boom Boom' Mancini,
Four guys sit around drinking beer and talking, trying to figure out the meaning of "the pompatus of love" (from the Steve Miller song "Joker") and analyzing their relationships with women. Written by
John Allison <firstname.lastname@example.org>
The title phrase was taken from two songs by Steve Miller; the mysterious word "pompatus" was originally spelled "pompitous" in the printed lyrics. But it originally comes from the Medallions' 1954 song "The Letter", written by Vernon Green when he was 14. Green explained in the 1990s that the word actually began with "puppet" and was a term he'd made up for "a secret paper-doll fantasy figure, who would be my everything and bear my children".

This movie seems sort of like the pilot for an unusually clever sitcom; the dialog is often very entertaining, but its character development is very weak, bordering on nonexistent. Thus, the movie feels like a collection of amusing but unrelated incidents that don't really lead anywhere or to anything. The ending seems more like just a convenient stopping point where very little has been resolved, so it provides little feeling of resolution. I was not bored while watching it, but I'm glad I didn't pay $7.00 to do so.
