As our story opens a bizarre convention is going on in one of those prototypically pink Florida hotels: Delegates are dressed as carrots, tomatoes, celery; banners advertise vitamins, hair sprays, dehydrated seaweed. Lauren Bacall, Glenda Jackson and Paul Dooley are vying for office in what is clearly meant to be a political spoof. Robert Altman's 1982 film is a mess—but it's also great fun, passably bright and lovely to look at.
