Storyline

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. From his first bizarre comment to his outrageous exit, Cody alienates almost every guest, ... Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Mike O'Malley: Maybe losing this job is the kick in the ass I need. I've gotten lazy on a steady paycheck. Hell, the Fish doesn't know what to do with me anyway. I've had more positions in the last year than Marilyn Chambers has had in a lifetime.

Exceptional Movie
9 May 2003 | by dottersonSee all my reviews

I found Laughing Boy to be spectacular. The character interaction and dialog is believable to the point of appearing like a humorous biography. It restored my belief that an independent film can be more then an artistic disassociation. Laughing Boy is something I can relate to. I could go into the little details of how I could associate with the movie, and because of that I loved it, however, the more I watched, the more I wanted to know what Cody would do next.

I have, and will continue to recommend this to any person who honestly loves a good comedy.
