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.

laughing boy withstands the wiener test of good movies.
2 May 2000 | by (houston tx.) – See all my reviews

i was very impressed with the movie laughing boy...iam not as long winded as some others and will not get into charaacter development or any other movie cliche reviews..

i'll make it short and sweet. first class direction, good acting good plot, good photography and editing. this movie is one of those movies that is worth seeing, not only becuse it was produced and directed by a hometown houston boy, but also because it is a good movie. in todays times with film budgets soaring way past the 100 million dollar limits, it is good to see that good movies can still be made by people who are out of the hollywood loop and on an extremely tight budget. people who make movies because they love making movies and are not at this very moment in it for the money...although i'm sure that brazil grisaffi would take some money if you gave it to him..

good movie....go see it if you can..........out
