O.C. and Stiggs ★★

A bottom of the barrel '80s teen comedy that just so happens to have been directed by a total genius. Altman's spirit shines through in the sheer zany, breakneck DENSITY of every aspect of the film, particularly the overloaded production design (that cactus house!), but mostly this one's a dud. The jokes fall flat, the plot's a mess, the characters are cookie cutter, and the racism and homophobia are cringe-inducing.
