Editorial Reviews

Robert Altman presents teen angst with a twist. Based on characters from National Lampoon Magazine, O.C. and Stiggs aren't your average unhappy teenagers. They not only despise their suburban surroundings, they plot against it. They seek revenge against the middle class Schwab family, who embody all they detest: middle class. In a film armed with vicious satire and hilarious surprises, suburbia will never be the same.

Money down the drain.
E. BJORNSSON
It's a little shocking to see that studios are still releasing non-anamorphic transfers of widescreen movies this late in the game.
Art
A vapid, obnoxious, exploitative teen movie without any of the charms of the genre.

All I want to say is that I can barely believe that no one has

commented on the atrocious transfer on the DVD. It looks like

a bad video on a TV screen glimpsed through a dirty window. It

is not even "barely watchable" - it is utterly unwatchable.

This may not be one of Altman's best, but surely it deserves

better treatment than this, if only for those of us who want

to be able to view this auteur's complete body of work. Whoever

produced this DVD ought to be ashamed of themselves.

I have bought both the US and UK disks in the hope that one

of them might be better than the other. No such luck - they

are both the same crappy junk. Money down the drain.

We've been had. And the thought of somebody actually making

money off selling this inferior product is distressing.

O.C. and Stiggs is a pure gem. The other reviews give you background, but what needs to be emphasized is that this film is filled with Robert Altman's special layered dialogue. O.C. and Stiggs can be watched a dozen times and still the viewer will notice some little tidbit of cleverness that wasn't obvious the first time. Do yourself a favor and buy this film so you can watch it again whenever the mood strikes you.

I can't say anything about the video transfer to this DVD, but the film itself is incredibly funny and not for the faint of heart. I saw it screened for $1 on Weird Wednesday at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, TX, which is a weekly screening of undervalued and barely understandable films, and it still stands out in my mind to this day as one of the funniest things I've ever seen. Completely worth watching all the way through at least once!

One of the more underappreciated cult films of the past couple decades, "O.C. & Stiggs" is an adaptation of a series of National Lampoon stories centered around two high school kids and their attempts to make life hell for their insurance salesman neighbor, Randall Schwab.

I first saw this flick shortly after it was released in the mid-80s and I've probably watched it 100 times since. The lengths that Oliver Cromwell Ogilvie ("'O.C.' to my friends, of which I have one - Stiggs") and Mark Stiggs go to make life miserable for Randall Schwab and his family make this film absolutely hilarious. From purchasing the loudest, most obnoxious car possible ("The Jilamonster") to distributing Schwab Insurance t-shirts to the local derelict population to ultimately kidnapping Schwab with the help of psycho Viet Nam vet "Sponson" (played by Dennis Hopper!), the hijinx never seem to cease. And we are all the better for it.

And then there is the great King Sunny Ade. His music provides the great soundtrack and features such classics as "Penkele" and "Moti Mo".

Appearances by the aforementioned Hopper, Melvin Van Peeples, Tina Louise, Martin Mull, John Cryer and a cameo by Bob Ueker merely punctuate the excellence of this Robert Altman-directed, twisted comedy.

It took seemingly forever for O.C. and Stiggs to hit DVD and the wait was well worth it.

An "utterly monstrous, mind-roasting" film.

The Schwab family, owners of an insurance company, are the antagonists in this slow-moving and slightly absurdist film. The company jingle?

Schwab Insurance
Serving the desert
For just over
Eleven years.

'Cause misery loves our company.

Kind of like Ferris Bueller's, but a thousand times more snarky. I have never read the National Lampoon stories, so have nothing to compare it to. But this film crawls along, peppered with ridiculous bits of dialogue that really make the film.

Being fairly uncool and self involved in the early 80s, I hadn't read any of the National Lampoon magazines at the time, so I was completely unaware of the antics (or existence) of Oliver Cromwell 'O.C.' Ogilvie and Mark Stiggs, or the fact that a movie, titled O.C. and Stiggs, based off this material, had been released in 1987. After reading some helpful reviews of the film, I searched the internet to see if I could locate any of the original materials, and sure enough, the National Lampoon website has a detailed listing of all the stories, which I'd recommend checking out. Based off of stories written by Tod Carroll and Ted Mann (both writers for National Lampoon), and directed by Robert Altman (MASH, Nashville, Popeye), the film features Daniel Jenkins (Glory) and Neill Barry (Amityville 3-D) as the title characters, Oliver Cromwell 'O.C.' Ogilvie and Mark Stiggs, respectively. Also appearing is a lengthy list of notables including Paul Dooley (Strange Brew), Jane Curtin ("3rd Rock from the Sun"), Martin Mull (My Bodyguard), Dennis Hopper (My Science Project), Ray Walston (Fast Times at Ridgemont High), Louis Nye (Harper Valley P.T.A.), Melvin Van Peebles (Jaws: The Revenge), Cynthia Nixon (Amadeus), Jon Cryer (Pretty in Pink), and Tina Louise, probably best known as Ginger, the movie star, from mid 60s television series "Gilligan's Island".

The film, set primarily in Scottsdale, Arizona, features two teenage miscreants named O.C. and Stiggs who have an affinity for lobster, floozies, and pranks (not necessarily in that order).
