That Must Be Where He Got the Idea For "Curse of the Jade Scorpion"

Former Playboy Playmate Jenny McCarthy has written and stars in a raucous comedy called "Dirty Love" that's on the festival's midnight movie program, and it may just be too outre at any time other than the middle of the night. At a noon press screening of the picture the other day, I stopped counting after 15 battle-tested entertainment journalists stampeded toward the exits soon after the first appearance of McCarthy's breasts.

This would not ordinarily be sufficient cause for flight, but during the scene in question, one of two Woody Allen look-alikes vomited into her cleavage. This was only about 20 minutes into the movie, by which time other bodily fluids had already been disbursed, including the tears that gave Jenny clown eyes.

It would be a mistake, however, to think that the press' urge to surge from this debacle will diminish the picture's chances of finding a distributor. I'd be very surprised if "Dirty Love" isn't among the dozen or so movies that gets picked up before the festival is over.
