  • O.C. (Daniel H. Jenkins) and Stiggs (Neill Barry) are two Arizona teenagers who are intent on making life miserable for their nerdy neighbors, the Schwabs--Randall (Paul Dooley), Elinore (Jane Curtain), Randall Jr. (Jon Cryer), and Lenora (Laura Urstein). The pair idolize musician King Sunny Ade, and when they find out he's playing a show in Mexico, they travel to see him with their dimwitted friend Barney (James Gilsenan). As the summer progresses, O.C. and Stiggs continue to torment the Schwabs--at Lenora's wedding, and the opening night of the local theatre group's play, to which they invite King Sunny Ade and his African Beats to perform. Another free-wheeling comedy in the tradition of M*A*S*H, O.C. AND STIGGS finds Altman dipping into the popular 1980s teen genre yet with his flair for the absurd. He also throws in comedic self-references to his other films such as NASHVILLE's presidential hopeful Hal Phillip Walker (Thomas Hal Phillips). Actors Melvin Van Peebles and Martin Mull also add to the light-hearted affair, as does Dennis Hopper, whose crazed Vietnam veteran mirrors the role he played in APOCALYPSE NOW.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...[Altman's] satirical side is given unusually free rein....Lively, colorful..."
    New York Times

    "...[The] performances are uniformly good, with Dennis Hopper once again excelling as a madman..."

    "...The satire is vicious, but Altman's handling is buoyant and worldly....[The film] has a wistful, bright look..."
    Los Angeles Times
