Pat Riley, an obnoxious busybody of undeterminable sex, meets and falls in love with Chris, a sensitive, caring person also of undeterminable sex. Their relationship suffers because Pat's a lout, and cannot decide on a direction for its life. Meanwhile, Pat's neighbor Kyle falls further and further into obsession with Pat, fascinated by its indeterminate sexuality.Written by

In the recurring sketches on Saturday Night Live (1975), Dana Carvey played Pat's equally androgynous partner, Chris. Carvey was asked to reprise the role in the movie adaptation, but turned it down. See more »

During the closing credits, audio of Kathy Griffin and Kyle is heard. Kathy is now back on her radio show and one of her callers turns out to be Kyle, whose obsession with Pat has now caused him to become a cross-dresser. See more »
In the DVD version the line delivered by Chris is heard as, "I love to stroke your pussycat." Though, it is obvious Chris' lips say "Pat". See more »
Alright, crappy movie, but Dave Foley's in it! Which automatically makes it at least MARGINALLY amusing. The only reason I rented this movie (and with a very red face as I went up to pay for it) was because Dave Foley (who plays Chris, Pat's equally androgynous lover in the movie) is a comic genius and my favorite actor in the world. Now if Dave HADN'T been in it would I have enjoyed it at all? Hmm, there's a question, I may have enjoyed the singing of "La Freak" but that's just because I'm a sucker for disco music too! But anyway, Dave Foley is great (not like this movie encourages greatness on ANY possible level, but anyway) and he is strangely attractive as a woman (as observed MORE than enough in his Kids in the Hall days). If you want a funnier (albiet, still a bit silly) movie with Dave Foley in it, opt for "The Wrong Guy", Dave co-wrote and stars in it, and the band Barenaked Ladies is in it as an added bonus. Dave Foley rocks!
