Very funny film that gives insight into an uncommon lifestyle
27 May 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You want to see a film with lots of naked old people??? Then The Lifestyle is for you. I had the pleasure to see this at the Seattle International Film Festival. This is a great crowd movie that is full of uproarious moments. All of the subjects have a very good sense of humor about the way they live, and this makes the film very enjoyable. Perhaps the strangest thing of all was that their lives were actually quite banal. That is, until they started the group sex! It gives whole new meaning to keeping "up" with the Joneses. Highly recommended!
