Right after the opening scene, Mitch (Billy Crystal) is undergoing a surgery on his buttocks. He is seen from his face and his bare part is covered.
We briefly see a man showing a lot of butt-crack in one scene.
A man takes a shower in the desert and is seen from the waist up.
Three men are shown sitting on the toilet; their crotches are covered barely.
When the cook gets drunk and rides around on the wagon, his bare butt is seen.
The entire film contains many conversations about sex and adultery. E.g.(1) a man and his wife are quarreling by screaming at each other in a party, and he admits cheating on her because they didn’t have sex for 12 years. E.g.(2) a man asks his friend whether he would have sex with a woman if his wife would have never find out.


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


1. Location. Pamplona, Spain, day

This is the famous “bull Running Festival”. What we see is a documentary style lens, which shows the unique aspects of this festival. We saw crowds in the streets, people sticking their heads out of the windows, bands playing on the sidewalk, and so on. At the same time, we heard music played by a Spanish band.

We finally saw the cow released. The camera follows the cattle colliding in the narrow and curved street, which is crowded with people. We saw a young Spanish lad running in front of the cow. One or two lads were held up by the cow and carried into the air.

A corner shot.

The roadside was crowded with people. The Spanish boys ran into the picture, turned the corner and ran to meet the camera. A few people fell out of the line, and then we saw Mickey Robbins, who was only a few steps away from the crazy running bull. He was frightened and ran desperately. He ran to the camera until his screaming, twisted face filled the whole screen.

He caught up with two other Americans, Phil birchester and ED freelow. All three are running.

The scene of cattle colliding.

Mickey’s shot.

He looked back and happened to see the cattle bowing towards him. He shouted. (SWITCHING)

2. Interior view. Infirmary, day

Mickey’s painful face. He frowned and groaned.

The camera opens to reveal that Mickey is standing with his butt pouted and his hands on the doctor’s table. We saw a man behind Mickey doing medical treatment. He uses needle and thread. Mickey’s funny face.

Mickey: does he understand what he’s doing? Does he know what he’s doing? Because you know, I can’t talk to him. He… Oh!

ED: can you relax a little? He did a good job.

Mickey (to the doctor): Sir… Hey… Doctor… Don’t sew the hole that should be open, will you?

Doctor: OK, OK.

Phil took a small camera out of his pocket and photographed Mickey’s ass. He used a flash.

Mickey: Phil, are you taking pictures?

Phil: are you kidding? It’s a Kodak moment.

He took another picture with a flash.

Mickey: it’s all your fault, ed.

ED: me?

Mickey: Yes, because you are a courageous madman, and Phil and I are… Sheep

Phil: I’m not a sheep.

Mickey: we are sheep, and we did very stupid things according to your idea.

ED: I didn’t force you to run around.

Mickey: No, it’s not you. It’s a two thousand pound crazy beast, snorting all over Spain. It forced me to run, but it was you who made me stand in front of it.

Phil: all right, let’s take a group photo.

Phil got on the selfie, the flash flashed and took a picture.

Mickey: Oh, man, Barbara would say to me, “I didn’t expect it.”

ED: maybe she didn’t even notice.

3. Interior view. Aircraft cabin

Mickey is loading things into the overhead luggage compartment. A big bag bulges up on one side of his ass, which is very conspicuous. His wife Barbara (about his age) stared at the drum.

Mickey: honey, do you want a cushion? The voyage is not short.

He turned around and found her staring at his ass while shaking her head.

Mickey (before taking over): it’s not that bad. You’re almost my mother.

ED and Kim came along the passage and sat in the seat opposite the passage that should have been Mickey. Kim was a young girl and very beautiful.

ED: honey, Kim, would you like an aisle seat or a window seat? No matter which one you want, I’m happy.

Kim: it doesn’t matter.

ED: Well, take the window seat. I still want to talk to Mickey. (to Mickey) to tell you the truth, you had a good time.

Mickey: No. Diving is fun because it’s a normal pastime. People play this. There’s no cure for baseball fan holiday camp – even Phil can’t help seeing Willie mace.

Phil (walking by with his luggage); That’s tension. He is my idol.

Mickey: I can’t forget Willie’s expression: “Hey, your soup is on me!”

Ed smiled. Phil is surrounded by his wife, Alina.

Alina: Phil, I’m still standing.

Phil: Yes, Alina.

Alina: I’ve had enough of this country. These people, hum.

Phil: they’re cute.

Alina: they are rude. Did you take my dessert.

Phil: here it is.

Mickey (to ED): listen, maybe something’s wrong with me, but I always feel a little… Stupid from beginning to end. It’s like… (to Barbara) what did you say?

Barbara (seriously): a desperate attempt to return to youth.

Mickey: Yes, that’s it.

Ed (disgusted): hum, nonsense.

Mickey (raised his voice): nonsense? Ed, didn’t you pay attention to yourself? You are getting older, but your girlfriend is getting younger and younger. It won’t be long before you date the fetus.

Ed (lowering his voice): I’m serious this time.

Barbara: Yes, you haven’t seen the stewardess yet.

Mickey: Bang! That’s all for this round. Ed. You lost miserably. I can only stop here.

Ed (to Barbara): didn’t you realize what kind of experience he had? From now on he can say that I fought cattle in Pamplona.

Barbara: No, he can say he let the cow lie down.

ED: Well, let me say one more thing… Target skydiving.

Ed took a roll of magazine out of his pocket.

Mickey: ED——

ED: the umbrella is a little smaller, but you descend twice as fast.

Mickey: Yes. And when they find your body, they can bury you in a matchbox.

ED: Phil said he would go.

Mickey: Phil wants to die. If you marry Alina, you want to die. Look, he’s over there. He’s pretending to sleep in order not to talk to her.

ED: actually, it’s just a light jump from the plane.

Mickey: then what? We went on an expedition and the beast chased us with a gun? When you are never satisfied, this time is enough!

Ed grabbed an onboard magazine from his seat pocket.

ED: I’m going to read.

Mickey: I just want to say

Ed (holding him down on the volume): da da da da da

4. Interior view. airport

They walked with their carry on luggage.

Mickey (to ED): I didn’t mean to hurt you.

ED: OK, I see. (turns to Phil) Phil, Mickey doesn’t want to be friends with us anymore.

Phil: why? What happened to him?

Mickey: come on, it’s almost time to catch up with the singers. Of course we are friends. We have always been friends. Should we ask how we become friends?

Mickey smiled. Ed didn’t laugh.

Mickey (on): let me tell you. Next week Phil takes Alina, you take your baby, and we’ll have a good night.

Phil: I’ll take those photos with me.

Laiqi: OK, let’s chat, look at the photos of my ass, and have coffee and snacks together——

ED: coffee and dessert? You’re almost your father, my friend.

Mickey: Hey, don’t hate it. I’m not my father. I——

Alina: Phil!

Barbara broke in——

Barbara: do you have a baggage tag?

Mickey stops for a moment to look for something, and ED moves on.

Mickey: Yeah.

Barbara: can’t find it?

Mickey (waving goodbye in ED’s direction): Oh

Barbara: (as like as two peas): you are the same as your father.

She went on, leaving Mickey in his place.

5. Location. New Jersey, early morning

We saw the outline of New York’s tall buildings in the distance, and the camera zoomed down to the middle-class suburban houses.

Caption: “a year later”.

6. Interior view. Mickey and Barbara’s bedroom, early in the morning

Mickey and Barbara are sleeping. The electronic clock shows 5:16. When the phone rings, Mickey mumbles, presses a button on the phone and turns on the phone’s speaker.

Mickey: Hello. mom.

Barbara moved.

Mother (voice over): it was June 8, 1952. We drove back from your Aunt Martha’s house. My amniotic fluid broke. Your father rushed over the isolation pier of Shamir River Avenue and drove me to dokdos hospital. You were born at 5:16. Happy birthday, honey. Your father wants to talk to you.

Father (voice over): Hello, child. Happy birthday.

Mickey: Hello, Dad. How are you?

Father (voice over): my left leg is beginning to lose feeling. Your mother wants to talk to you.

Mother (voice over): don’t worry, you’re fine. What are you going to do, birthday man?

Mickey: Well, I think I’ll stay in bed for another three and a half hours and then go to work.

Mother (voice over): is Barbara with you?

Mickey: No, mom. She’s still picking up guests in the street and won’t be back until seven o’clock.

Barbara: Hello, mom.

Mother (voice over): give my son a good kiss. (starts sobbing) I can’t believe my baby is thirty-nine years old.

Mickey: bye, mom.

Mother (voice over): goodbye, lovely birthday.

Mickey: bye.

He hung up. They lay in silence for a while.

Mickey: do I look a year older?

Barbara: at 5:16 a.m. Everyone looks a year older.

Mickey: you know what I found yesterday? I have hair on my ears.

Barbara (sleepy): Mickey

Mickey: hair falls where it should be long, but hair grows where it shouldn’t. I’m almost finished.

Barbara: maybe we should cancel your birthday party.
