It's the end of the 1970s. Hippies are assimilating, women are raising their consciousness, and men are becoming confused and ineffectual. Don't expect to be able to keep track of all the names, or who's sleeping with whom. This movie very skillfully conveys the hopeless muddle through which the many characters move as they try to find themselves.Written by

In his autobiography "Tall, Dark and Gruesome", Sir Christopher Lee identifies this movie as one that was particularly important to him (despite the fact that he played a relatively small part).

Fellow beings, we are here to celebrate a wedding. Not one imposed by an uptight consumer society, which kills whales, builds nuclear reactors, but a real marriage. Will you touch each other please?

A funny and brilliantly scripted parody of 70s suburban life
This is in my top ten of all time favourite films.
Harvey Holroyd can't understand what's happening around him. His wife has started to raise her consciousness, his daughter is concerned about her rights, his best friend who has a preoccupation with the Johnny Carson show is bombed out on pills and he's been a loser for 5 years!
I can sum this fantastic film up in two quotes from it: "Reality is watching a pair of self proclaimed assholes getting pair-bonded by a priest from the gong show". "Are they hell's angels?" "No they're gay. On weekdays they're regular guys with regular jobs but at weekends they dress up like hell's angels and listen to a lot of Judy Garland record". Priceless!
