Ready to burn his last bridge with Hollywood, Robert Altman took an offer to make a National Lampoon adaptation with a hefty budget at the height of the post-ANIMAL HOUSE boom. What resulted was O.C. AND STIGGS, a surreal, nearly-plotless evisceration of American culture in which obnoxious teenage miscreants O.C. Ogilvie and Mark Stiggs wreak havoc amidst a web of oblivious classmates, odious Reaganite suburb dwellers, and battle-scarred counter-culture refuges. An unparalleled achievement in transgressive studio filmmaking that MGM shelved for years, O.C. AND STIGGS is an utterly monstrous, mind-roasting explosive device ready to detonate in the face of anybody who dares to look its way. With Dennis Hopper, Melvin Van Peebles, Cynthia Nixon, King Sunny Adé, and more!
