Summary: For years Dennis Hensley, author of the best-seller Misadventures in the (213), has been getting his friends together to watch and crack wise about movies we all know and love, movies like Taxi Driver, Jaws, and The Sound of Music, movies that had an impact on the world we live in. They also watched Glitter. Though each film endures its share of cheap shots, Hensley and Company are just as likely to talk seriously about what the films mean to them. This book also explores the lives of its "characters" outside of the parties--their hopes and dreams, fortunes and foibles, and how the ritual of getting together once a month to lust after Gregory Harrison in For Ladies Only or make fun of Barbra Streisand in A Star Is Born comes to mean more to them than they'd ever have imagined.--From publisher description.
