Hustler has been putting out these porno parodies of movies and TV shows for a couple of years -- NOT M*A*S*H XXX, This Ain't Nurse Jackie... things like that. I watched one, purely for professional reasons, with their "Sarah (Nailin') Palin" on "Letterman" with "Obama." It was dispiriting, because comedy is dispiriting.
Wait, that's not true. I found a copy of Screw on the street in New York in 1989 that had a parody ad for Working Girl called Jerking Girl, starring Sickhorny Beaver, and that's, seriously, one of the jokes that's brought me the most pleasure in my life.
A long way to say I'll be finished with Caged Eagle by the end of the day and I'm enjoying the hell out of it. It's everything I love in Rohmer, like a recurring dream, plus the hero, Gator the Unstoppable Sex Machine, getting laid -- in wartime! -- every 12 to 24 hours.
This Ain't Patton's Gap XXX.
Easily my favorite Rohmer so far -- but I'm only on page 150.
