"Beyond Therapy"

Beyond Therapy (1987) is Robert Altman's lowest rated film at IMDb with a 3.9. Made from a play that was purportedly hilarious, it is full of quirky characters and witty dialogue, and boast a great cast, but the whole is far less than the sum of its parts. It is essentially a Woody Allen-esque romantic comedy staring Jeff Goldblum as the bisexual man trying to find a woman and not terminally piss off his live in male lover, and Julie Hagerty as the neurotic writer for People magazine who answers his ad in the New Yorker. Most of the film takes place in a French restaurant full of other dysfunctional people, most of whom see the same two therapists, who themselves are pieces of work.

Like any play adaptation, the film is very wordy, but that is not its only downfall. There is no sane character in the film for us to relate to, which makes it hard to be really involved in the film. There is very little action to provide pace, and I felt like it might have been better done as a radio broadcast.

We have breast exposure from an unknown woman or women and Laure Killing. Critics were just as unkind as IMDb readers. Although set in Manhattan, it was actually filmed in Paris. This is a D. It is technically competent, and the acting is fine. The problem is the script.

    "The L Word" (2004):

    Boy am I dumb. I thought I was going to cover the first season of The L Word in one day, the way I do with Sex and The City. Yeah, right. Maybe I will be able to speed up later, but I couldn't even get through the pilot episode. Three basic reasons: (1) it's non-stop nudity (2) I didn't know all the characters (3) there are three naked women I haven't identified yet.

    Here's the starter set from the "Pilot" (which is actually episodes one and two)

    • Mia Kirshmer (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)

    • Laurel Holloman (1, 2, 3)

    • Karina Lombard (1, 2, 3)

    Bodies (2004)

    Hi Scoopy !

    The following took place between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. on BBC 2 last Wednesday. Scottish-born actress Neve McIntosh gets pretty raunchy on British network TV with her hubby in the series "Bodies" (2004). We had a collage of this scene a couple of days ago and I read somewhere that this would be on BBC 2 last Wednesday, so guess who was ready to record this and make 2 clips from it? I'm a bit surprised here because I didn't even know such content was allowed on public TV in the UK.

    Scoop's note: I'm sure glad that British TV isn't under the auspices of the FCC.


    Der letzte Zeuge (1998)

    And as an extra bonus Berlin-born actress Gesine Cukrowski gives up the goodies in 1998's Der letzte Zeuge (The last witness). She is quite successful in Germany and some may also remember her from a small part in in the not so good film FearDotCom.

    That's it for today.

    Yours faithfully,

    NOTE: We currently have to do all of our movie files in zip format. Instead of viewing them online, save the zip files to your hard drive in the directory of your choice, un-zip and play from there.

    Today from the Ghost...a mixed bag of 'caps and vids.

    First up, 'caps and clips from "Alien Avengers" (1996) and "Alien Avengers II" (1998). Both are lo-budget flicks written by "MAD TV" cast member Michael McDonald, and starring George Wendt and Anastasia Sakelaris. Sakelaris has a face that is as cute as can be, plus a great all natural pair.

    • Anastasia Sakelaris toplessness and thong views in "Alien Avengers". (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)
    • Anastasia Sakelaris zipped .wmvs (1, 2)

    • Anastasia Sakelaris topless in "Alien Avengers II". (1, 2, 3)
    • Anastasia Sakelaris zipped .wmv

    Next up...Janet Margolin is probably not a name that you recognize, but I am willing to bet me lucky charms that you've seen her several times.

    Some of her credits include:

  • "The Greatest Story Ever Told" (1965).
  • "Morituri" (1965) (One of my favorite Brando movies. Co-starring Yul Brynner in an equally powerful performance. Plus Margolin was young and gorgeous).
  • "Nevada Smith (1966), starring Steve McQueen.
  • Woody Allen's "Take the Money and Run" (1969).
  • "Annie Hall" (1977)
  • and of course..."Ghostbusters II" (1989)

    Here she is briefly baring her breasts in a couple of scenes from the Jonathan Demme film "Last Embrace" (1979), starring Roy Scheider, Charles Napier and Christopher Walken.

    • Janet Margolin (1, 2, 3, 4)
    • Janet Margolin zipped .wmvs (1, 2, 3)

    Last but not least, some assorted video clips.

      Two classic nude scenes from the 80's favorite, "Risky Business".
    • Rebecca De Mornay, getting it on with Tom Cruise.
    • Francine Locke, the fantasy shower girl scene.

    • Susan Player (who was featured yesterday in the Ghost's coverage of "Invasion of the Bee Girls"). Here she is topless and rockin' the van in a scene from "The Pom Pom Girls" (1976).

    'Caps and comments by Dann:

    "She Killed in Ecstasy"
    Noted sleaze director Jess Franco was a busy man in 1971. Immediatedly after finishing the notorious Vampyros Lesbos, he churns out this crime/horror flick using much of the same cast including star Soledad Miranda, plenty naked as usual.

    Not as warped as Vampyros, Ecstasy tells of a young woman bent on revenge. When her doctor husband kills himself after a medical committee shuts down his research into human embryos, branding him an unethical monster, she decides to eliminate the members of the comittee (male and female) one by one, by killing them in the middle of sex.

    Schmaltzy and campy and lame and sexy and fun to watch, a slightly lower-key Franco but Franco nevertheless.

    Kathleen Quinlan
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14)

    Kristina Fulton
    (1, 2)

    Señor Skin takes a look at the 1991 Oliver Stone movie, "The Doors". There seems to be a love it or hate it reaction to this movie, but one thing has been agreed on by both sides, Val Kilmer IS Jim Morrison in this movie.

    Personally, I kinda liked it for three reasons:
    1.The Doors had some good tunes.
    2.The last time I watched it I was under the influence of at least 2 or 3 drugs (some legal) and it seemed to have more meaning for me in that state of mind.
    3.The chick I was watching it with loved it, so it got me laid.

    But let's not forget that there is also some pretty good nudity from Meg Ryan, Kathleen Quinlan and Kristina Fulton.

    Mail Box
    Subject: Nudity on Wednesday night's "LAX"?
    I swear that last night, in the opening minutes of L.A.X., when Heather Locklear was leaving the house of her lover and turned back to speak to him, intercut in the scene was two quick shots of 1.) a breast with an erect nipple, and a microsecond later, 2.) a man's mouth sucking on said breast.

    I've never done L.S.D. so.... Did anyone else in the Scoopy Universe see this???


    Subject: ABC Football ad
    Hey Scoops!
    Greetings from the sticks! The only thing I see wrong with the ABC football clip with Nicolette is they cropped too far up when she jumped into his arms! Let's see that butt!

    Pat's comments in yellow...

    Run Down This Pedestrian - Citing Ashlee Simpson's lousy music and lip-synching, a New York-based group called H.O.P.E. (Horrified Observers of Pedestrian Entertainment), in league with Rhino Records, is letting people swap her CD "Autobiography" for one "of higher entertainment quality." Visitors to can trade for a CD by the Ramones, X, Ray Charles, Brian Wilson, the Grateful Dead or Joni Mitchell. H.O.P.E. has also protested Jimmy Fallon's movie "Taxi" and a Paris Hilton book signing.

  • But really, Ashlee is a new low.
  • They discovered that Paris couldn't even write her name.
  • Trading Ashlee Simpson for a Ray Charles CD is like getting a Rolex in exchange for a bag of dog poop.
  • Ashlee has no excuse for being so awful: if you're just going to lip-synch, you can lip-synch to the Ramones!
  • Can I trade in photos of Ashlee Simpson for photos of Jessica Simpson?

    They're Riding Up In Popularity - Bridget Jones is a trendsetter: Australian underwear companies say big granny panties are coming back. Retailers report that women are "taking a more feminine approach to underwear" and abandoning G-strings for the new "boy-leg" panties that give them more coverage. Even men buying sexy underwear for women are opting for boy-legs over G-strings. And they'll only get bigger: next year, a top lingerie maker will launch a line of full cotton bloomers.

  • At least it'll be easier to get into a woman's panties because there'll be enough room for two.
  • Every year, panties will get bigger...just like women's butts.
  • If a man prefers boy-legs over G-strings, then he probably really prefers boys' legs.
