Storyline

Is having fun and saying what you really think politically incorrect? Or is it impossible to do both? Cody McKenzie thinks nobody has parties anymore. Maybe they do, but he just isn't invited to any. However, tonight, Cody and his wife Judy are going to a very special party. Elizabeth Sheridan, star of Cody's fantasies, is giving it for the engagement of his best friend. Elizabeth also happens to be a very important player where Cody works. Judy sees the party as a chance for Cody to advance; he sees it as a chance to impress the woman of his dreams. The fact that he bungles it horribly is perfectly natural. He couldn't do it any other way. The guests are all impossibly proper - preppies, yuppies, culturally elite - which are simply trendy labels for snobbish bores. His reputation precedes him, and once Cody arrives, he trips all over it. The harder he tries to be one of them, the more he fails. From his first bizarre comment to his outrageous exit, Cody alienates almost every guest, ... Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Mike O'Malley: Maybe losing this job is the kick in the ass I need. I've gotten lazy on a steady paycheck. Hell, the Fish doesn't know what to do with me anyway. I've had more positions in the last year than Marilyn Chambers has had in a lifetime.

I guarantee that we'll be hearing more in the future about Grisaffi.
13 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you've ever been dragged to some function attended by people that you generally despise, but you've been forced to hide your feelings, rictus mistaken for a smile as you desperately attempt to get through the evening without taking a bite out of the weasels that surround you

  • if you've ever been accused of being a "smart ass", of "not being a
team player" or have ever heard the phrase "some people just don't belong" - well, LAUGHING BOY is the movie you've been waiting for... and a tasty slice of revenge it is.

This is easily one of the year's best films that you haven't heard of - until now.
