keep a tight neck

The plot of "Heads" should identify that the movie is a black comedy. It's OK, not great. It was the first movie in which I ever saw Jon Cryer, Jennifer Tilly and Ed Asner, but I didn't learn their names until years later. I had previously seen Roddy McDowall in "Planet of the Apes", but he was another actor whose name I learned years later. I'm always surprised to read about movies many years after I saw them and find out which people they starred.

It's not any kind of masterpiece. Just an OK movie to rent if there's nothing else to watch.

And remember: bookmobile is one word.

PS: When "Heads" got released on video, the tagline was "The comedy that proves that having one head is better than none."
