Shampoo (Hal Ashby, 1975)

Very funny comedy about the exploits of… him (up there).  Sexual pentagon climaxes in a hilarious dinner / party sequence where all characters meet and … detonate.  GREAT comedic performances by Lee Grant, Julie Christie, the late, great Jack Warden (esp the late Jack Warden) and..Carrie Fisher.  This story about very liberal antics takes place on the election night of Richard Nixon which gives a very clever, ironic backdrop.  Stupid Hollywood ending wraps everything up in a tight little silly bow.  This is a very enjoyable film!
