This movie made me cry I laughed so much. You have to know the characters of the story to understand the comic genius of Julie Brown. She nailed them. After all these years, I still recite lines from this movie. I took a phone call at work that made me mad, so after the other party hung up, I wanted to yell into the phone "you pi$ me off". In the movie, Lorena Babbit, while carrying her husband's severed organ in her hand and driving down the road, "talks" to her clenched hand and says "You pi$ me off". In my simple yet complex head, I think that's funny. It's a dick, it used to pi$. Another good laugh is when Lorena goes to meet her attorney named "Dick", she walks into the restaurant and says "I'm looking for Dick" and all the guys in the restaurant bend over and cover their crotch. It just makes me laugh. It is an intelligent slapstick humor if that is possible. If you have one of those phone calls that is upsetting, grab the phone and yell into the receiver "you pi$ me off" then find a copy of this movie. The laughs will make you forget someone or something "pi$ed you off".
