    1. Not for those easily offended by any means. Really.I must say that it made me a little sad to read this, as long ago, in my seven-year-stint at university, there was a group of folk known as the Bombshelter, and often, while watching movies, there was a free-for-all discussion of the movie while it played. It was always amusing, witty, and a hell of a lot of fun, but said gatherings don't quite measure up to "Screening Party." It shames me to admit this. Though, to be fair, you know how you can [...]

    2. “Her hat is killing me,” insists one of the regulars. “I swear to God, I just lost 30 T-cells.”There’s a fine line between shock humor and bad taste, and if Screening Party seems constantly in danger of tripping over it, things usually come down on the preferable side.The premise is simple… and promising. A mixed bag of guests (men and women, straight and gay, psychotherapist, attorneys, stand-up comics, et al) get together on a regular basis to watch a mixed bag of old movies, most [...]

    3. It is very, very rare that anything in a book will make me laugh out loud. I might smile, or appreciate the author's wit or turn of phrase, but seldom is there actual laughter. I'll bet I laughed aloud about ten times while reading this hysterical, irreverant book about a group of people who meet weekly to watch some great and not-so-great movies. This book is a must-read for any popular film buff (you won't see "Citizen Kane" or anything by Kurosawa in here). Incredibly enjoyable, and even hold [...]

    4. I have bought 3 copies of this book because everytime I loan this out it never comes back. So So So funny. It makes me feel like I'm one of their friends right there on the sofa. I laughed out loud. It just reminded me of being with my friends JD, Chris and Chris watching "Designing Women".

    5. I strongly recommend reading the book in order as the participants evolve throughout the encounters; I came to appreciate the book more the further I got into the story. However, I couldn't identify with these people much at all - what a truly shallow lot, not in the sense that they don't care about each other, but the continual emphasis on looks (the three gay guys are hot n buff, and only the same need apply, thankyouverymuch) was a lot to take. Dr. Beverly Beaverman, the next door neighbor ol [...]

    6. This book what a bit scattered. You definitely need to read it from front to back to have it make sense, and even then, its so so. The editing was crap, with a lot of typos or double words. Painful

    7. This is a funny funny book. An eclectic group of friends in LA gets together to review movies and then one guy writes about it. Hilarious.

    8. REVIEW OF THE 3-Disc Audiobook:Dennis Hensley held a series of movie screening parties for friends and recorded the group's caustic chatter while watching the films. He relates what's happening on-screen while his pals (voiced by Kathy Griffin, Tony Tripoli, Erin Quill, Mark Salzberg and Robert Abele) create a Mystery Science Theater 3000-like atmosphere with astute put-downs, wry observations and behind-the-scenes anecdotes to delight film buffs. This crowd can even make a fun evening out of si [...]

    9. This was a surprisingly enjoyable book, I have to say. It's a bit like watching bad moves with your friends, and I suppose it helps if you've seen the movies. The author's friends reminded me of mine, so it was a good time. Recommended if you love bad films!
