Storyline

VINCE D'ANGELO is a low life, Congressman from New Jersey who'll stop at nothing to get elected to the U.S. Senate. With his sleazy, below-the-belt campaign tactics, he's hell-bent on destroying his opponents reputations and getting himself and his wife to the top of the heap in Washington D.C. In "SCHOOL, GIRLS, & YOU," it's the 1950's -- and strait-laced Everdale University is about to go "coed". In order to prepare it's student body for the onslaught of "females" on campus, they present this hard-hitting educational film. Wally Bile is the "wrong-way" role model with Science Professor, Dr. Bloom. Dr. Bloom explains the vital "do's and don'ts" on dating women, and the all-important "warning signs" and "danger signals" to look out for when close-encountering the opposite sex. Written by J. Marina Muhlfreidel

See it if you can - before it's too late

'Likely Stories, Vol. 2' is unquestionably one of the funniest vignette compilations I've ever had the pleasure of viewing. All the players deliver excellent performances, with DeVito and Perlman in roles they seemed born to play ('The Selling of Vince D'Angelo'). 'School, Girls, and You' features a young Paul Reubens (Pee Wee Herman) and the ever-dignified Patrick Macnee ('The Avengers') in a 1950s style health education film on co-ed education. Other cast members include Tim Thomerson, John Roarke, Bruce Kimmel, and Gerritt Graham - and they do not disappoint. Opening with a clever parody of 'A Clockwork Orange', 'Likely Stories, Vol. 2' follows through as the Alexesque narrator promises: I was entertained, all right.

10/10 claw scratches – comedy gold!
