  1. FISCHER's rating of the film O.C. and Stiggs

    Sur le mode délibérément humoristique et léger, une acerbe et tonique critique, quelquefois caustique, d'une certaine Amérique lourdement arriviste... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Daniel S.'s rating of the film O.C. and Stiggs

  3. TeN's rating of the film 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.

  4. Ghostman's rating of the film O.C. and Stiggs

    Altman's critique of 80s white conservative america and suburbia. It's also a great send-up of every teen comedy ever made. Fucking awesome.

  5. Andrés Pff's rating of the film O.C. and Stiggs

  6. Ethan's rating of the film O.C. and Stiggs

    Really this film could be considered a sequel to Apocalypse Now if they followed the Dennis Hopper character and it could also be considered a sequel to Nashville with the candidate Hal Philip Walker cropping up all the time.

  7. Cbarky99's rating of the film O.C. and Stiggs

    One of Altman's trademark zooms pretty clearly captures Melvin Van Peebles' chest rising and falling as he breathes in and out in the scene where he's supposed to be dead, and the titular characters are trying to wake him up, completely undercutting an attempted shift in tone. So it goes.

  8. 16bitsystems's rating of the film O.C. and Stiggs

    under-appreciated classic. a true masterpiece.

  9. James R.'s rating of the film O.C. and Stiggs

    A neglected comedy that begs for a cult following. Sitting on the shelf for several years, Robert Altman's attempt to fuse the anti-establishment ethos of his 1970s films with the apolitcal youth comedies of the 80s probably was destined to not find a mass audience. Yet the laughs are there, with several hilarious performances and an overall air of high-spirited, good-natured fun.

  10. GODFROMANAL's rating of the film O.C. and Stiggs

    My favorite movie of all-time.

  11. Jake Mulligan's rating of the film O.C. and Stiggs

    Altmans worst of the 20 or so I've covered this far. Has it's laughs, and tries to create a vany higher reality almost like "Popeye", but ends up too closely resembling the teen fare it sets out to parody. A worthy film, but not a notably good one.
