Special Features


Editorial Reviews


Celebrated Naked Gun writer Pat Proft and director Anthony Perkins (Psycho III) serve up the literally side-splitting macabre comedy LUCKY STIFF, the story of a family that takes its "meatloaf surprise" to a grisly new level. Critics simply raved about the award-winning SIMPLE MEN from director Hal Hartley (The Unbelievable Truth, Henry Fool), the tale of two brothers (Robert Burke, Munich, TV's Oz and William Sage, American Psycho) who chase their jailbird-on-the-lam dad in a journey that turns out to be way more odd than simple. Called "shockingly funny" by Rolling Stone magazine, SPANKING THE MONKEY (written and directed by David O. Russell, Three Kings, I Heart Huckabees) was an outrageous tour-de-force - a coming-of-age black comedy about sexual secrets that you won't soon forget.

The three films in this triple pack have almost nothing in common, except for the fact that they are all incredibly weird.

Much like "Happiness", a black comedy about a pedophile, "Spanking the Monkey" is the sort of film that will not appeal to everyone. It's a film about a teenage boy who falls in love with his mother. This film is billed as a black comedy, and I suppose it is, in retrospect, but I didn't feel like I was watching a comedy when I was watching it. What this film is, is a truly amazing character study of a suburban family that contains some laughs but also realizes that a lot of what it's dealing with just shouldn't be laughed at. Writer/director David O. Russell ("Three Kings", "I Heart Huckabees") takes a subject that most people wouldn't touch with a 10 foot pole, and explains how it could happen and the consequences if it does happen. The result is a film that feels completely believable and that is also completely compelling - 5 stars

"Simple Men" is possibly the most pretentious films I have ever seen. I watched this film to the end in the hope of finding something that resembled a plot but was sorely disappointed (the back of the cover plot description is essentially: two brothers go on a road-trip to find their on-the-lam anarchist father and in the process meet an assortment of odd characters). All that happened was a bunch of characters, that I cared very little about, said a lot of things that I think were intended to be deep and profound but which I found to be meaningless - 1 star

"The Lucky Stiff" is a comedy about cannibalism. The film starts off poorly, with most of the jokes in the first half of the film falling flat, but in the second half, when the action shifts to somewhere in Hillbilly country, the film improves.

Spanking the Monkey is halarious and probably makes guys think about their mom differently for like 10 minutes! They other two movies are really dumb. You will enjoy laughing at how stupid they are.
