‘A Good Old Fashioned Orgy’

Directed by Peter Huyck

Rated R, 95 minutes

The summer of 2011 was loaded with R-rated comedies like “Horrible Bosses” and “The Change-Up.” But one of the best, “A Good Old Fashioned Orgy,” was released and forgotten by the overloaded masses, which is ridiculous because it featured cast members from “Saturday Night Live,” “Children’s Hospital” and “The League.” If you like any of those shows, you’ll enjoy the wild hijinks in “A Good Old Fashioned Orgy.” Eric (Jason Sudeikis) and his friends (including Tyler Labine, Lake Bell, Nick Kroll, Martin Starr and Will Forte) spend their weekends throwing crazy, themed parties at his family’s home in the Hamptons. But when his dad decides to sell it, the group decides to have one final blowout bash — an orgy. “A Good Old Fashioned Orgy” is a good-old fashioned comedy that offers plenty of laughs and a few surprises. Underwear is optional. CV


Directed by Hert Bochner

1994, PG-13, 79 minutes

Remember when college was fun? Me, too. But times have changed and even though college isn’t like it used to be, you could always go back and watch “PCU” to remember the chaos. Known as the “Animal House” of the ’90s, “PCU” blasted on to the scene with an up-and-coming cast (including Jeremy Piven, Jon Favreau, Alex Desert, Jake Busey and Megan Ward) and a rocking soundtrack highlighted by the godfather of funk, George Clinton, and the Parliament Funkadelic (who makes an appearance in the film). Tom (Chris Young) is a high school senior trying to decide on what college to attend. When he visits Port Chester University, he meets Droz (Piven), the leader of The Pit, the wildest and craziest group on campus. With their help, Tom realizes there is much more to life than studying. Blow off class and watch “PCU” today. CV
