Senor Cardgage: "This clip seems to be one of those things (like Robert Altman's almost unwatchable M*A*S*H*) that hasnt really much going for it besides a certain strain of dated irreverence. A kind of "fuck you, mannnn" that must have seemed vital and revolutionary in its day that now just seems antiquated and sorta quaint.
While I am grateful for the boundary smashing of previous generations, I think the lesson learned is that while irreverence is greatand all there should be something else there too if you want it to play well 20, 30, 40 years down the road.
Otherwise in this case you just end up with cheap juxtaposition ala one of the Movie* Movies.
Still, I love Buck Henry so Ill track it down and give the film a fair shake. This here is pretty meh.
