TAKE 37: "Guttenberg, c'mon, try to be more enthusiastic"


"Do all toll collectors look like that?"

directed by Nancy Walker! (1980)

Starring: Village People, Valerie Perrine, Bruce Jenner, Steve Guttenberg......

If you've seen it, you know. If you haven't seen it, don't do it alone, or sober. Two minutes into the film, I am on the floor, screaming with laughter. Sixteen minutes into the film, I have the TV set on the window ledge, with the cable cord wrapped around my neck preventing me from tossing the damn thing down 4 floors, but still able to scream: "make him stop, make Guttenberg stop!" Really, a movie about the Village People where you don't see The Leatherman until 72 minutes into it???? C'mon! To make things even more ridiculous, I rented the damn thing on Thursday, watched/fast-forwarded on Friday, with a due date of Saturday. But, um, my weekend went so well that I forgot all about it, and didn't return it 'til Tuesday with a 3-day late fee! Oh, and check out this amazing review/guide/critque.
