Seth recommended this, and the concept appealed so much I instantly Netflixed the DVD. Well worth watching, foot in a tub of ice, glass of pinot, etc. Caution: scenes of genital injury and general hilarity may cause spontaneous laughter. Not a good thing with a mouthful of pinot, especially if one's couch is off-white (thank Cthulu for Scotchguard). I like films (and lengthy novels) unafraid of mixing high-brow literary material and low-brow farce. Tristram Shandy does so with Pythonesque aplomb.
