Outrageous Fortune (1987)

Starring: Better Midler, Shelley Long, George Carlin In its way, more baffling than the nutty Inland Empire and Obsession put together, Long plays a wannabe female Hamlet, Midler a wannabe porn actress, as they share a humiliating Stanislavskian method acting class, and, well... After that, it's all a bit of a blur: nuts, in an 80s comedy sort of way.

Classic quotes include: "How dare you defraud the legitimate theater community of New York City!", "Nine years of ballet, asshole!" and... (thinking about it, I suppose you had to be there...)
