S.O.B. (1981) [Blu-ray]
Frequently bought together

Felix Farmer’s (Richard Mulligan) latest movie flops – and lots of Hollywood types spring into action. Agents are called. Lawyers are retained. Statements are issued. It’s what master comedy director Blake Edwards calls “Standard Operating Bull,” the subject of his gleefully satiric S.O.B. Julie Andrews is a wholesome superstar about to alter her image…radically. Aiding and abetting the madness are William Holden, Robert Preston, Robert Vaughn, Shelley Winters, Loretta Swit and more. Dialogue crackles like fat in a fire, gags range from dead-on deadpan to comedic broadsides, insights bristle and sting. Nothing standard here: S.O.B. is extraordinary.

This movie is one of the funniest movies that I have ever seen. I have enjoyed many funny movies in my time. This is dark humor and that makes a funnier movie.
The plot is about suicide and how not to try it during a small orgy. The guy tries to it it several times and can't. Then to realize that his try isn't necessary. I can't wait to watch it again right now.
Excuse me, bye.
How many personalities can you recognize? The cross-dressing studio head? The 'Miss-Squeaky-Clean-"G"-rated' actress? The over-the-hill-womanizing director? Or the go-for-the-kill gossip columnist?
Richard Mulligan plays Felix Farmer, the producer of 'NightWind' (a major flop that breaks wind everywhere it plays) whose only idea to salvage his career is to kill himself. Throughout the first half of the film he tries various methods unsuccessfully. Finally, after his last disastrous attempt - which drops him into the middle of an orgy, he gets a revelation - turn the "G" movie into an "X" rating!
Look for Roseanna Arquette as a nude sunbather/hitchhiker...
A solid cast, a good plot line ... what more could you as for in this slapstick comedy?
