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 guests are all impossibly proper - preppies, yuppies, culturally elite - which are simply trendy labels for snobbish bores.

Laughing Boy was the best drama I had seen since American Beauty. It, too, exposed the seamier side of the well groomed upper middle class American suburbanite. Again the vehicle for undermining the facade was a maverick, white, family man, who enjoys imbibing.
