Ah Biao stars as an acrobatic country hick who must flee out of town after injuring a wealthy socialite during an innocent competition. While exploring the area, he runs into a soccer team who discovers his talents.
The film starts out B&W and shows Oliver Nibble being berated by his wife. They go to a cinema and Oliver's imagination runs wild. The film turns into color as Oliver photographs his models in various stages of dress (and undress).

A week in the life of "The Gong Show" host and creator Chuck Barris who lives through a series of outrageous competitors, stressful situations, a nervous breakdown and other comical characters involved in his life and work on the TV show.Written by
Basically this is just a fictional tale of Chuck Barris going crazy trying to keep the "Gong Show" on the air and appease the censors at the same time.
Those sections of the movie are drivel--unfunny, really stupid and tedious with pointless drama thrown in.
But when they show unedited acts from the "Gong Show" this movie takes off.
The acts are sick and crude--and absolutely hilarious. My favorites are a version of the "Vatican Rag" (with one guy dressed as a priest and three other guys as nuns acting out the song) and some teenage girls sucking on popsicles that are--um--a very unusual shape and color. All the acts are good, but these two stand out.
I'm shocked that this isn't available in video or DVD! It bombed at the box office but so did "Ishtar" and I see tons of those available! Hopefully with the Chuck Barris movie being released soon this will be rectified.
Not a good movie but a very fun good-bad movie. And you get to see Jaye P. Morgan's breasts!
