Awful Mazursky Self Indulgence

I defy anyone to sit thru this film without throwing up. It is a tale of three self-indulgent jerks with as much substance as a gas inflated beach ball-- which is about right since a lot of this movie takes place in Malibu. This is a prime example of naval gazing, that would reach its apotheosis about ten years later with the series 30-Something. Put three boring people together with all their quirks and what you get is a movie that is 300% more hollow than if it just had one character. Skip this one as fast as possible.
