You can't listen to what your younger brother has to say. I can't think of anyone less an authority of female anatomy.

Brilliantly written. Stillman's first in his trilogy, this sets the standard for the offbeat banter and dialogue of the two films that followed, "Barcelona," and "The Last Days of Disco."
