Want to See: "Rabbit Test"

Directed by Joan Rivers; with Billy Crystal, Alex Rocco, Roddy McDowall; (1978) 84 min.

"Joan Rivers' sole directorial effort, Rabbit Test features Billy Crystal (in his first starring role) as a nightschool teacher and long-suffering virgin who, after a night of passion, defies medical science to become the world's first pregnant man. Rivers' trademark brand of button-pushing comedy runs wild in this absurdist riot of raunchy humor and gleefully tasteless gags calibrated to offend, well, just about everybody. Includes cameos from a host of character actors and comedians including Imogene Coca, Alice Ghostley, Paul Lynde, and the director herself. It's inconceivably funny!"
