Not a sequel to "The Sweet Smell of Sex."
14 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

This yuk-fest was billed as the first "underground" movie to see, err, daylight (so to speak). I so dearly want to see it again. Elise Downey walks off with the movie playing all the female roles. "Don't ever say Sister Basilica never gave you a fair shake." Yipes! You really had to be there. One of the funniest last lines ever -- no spoiler -- "I don't plan to spend the rest of my life on welfare -- but it's a start."

P.S. It's listed in IMdb as BW, but it had one color sequence, when Walter dies, goes to Heaven, and gets told that he has to go back and live because he hasn't suffered enough. Insanely funny when I was 17. Probably still insane.
