The deranged adventures of Gonzo journalist Hunter Thompson and his attorney Oscar Acosta, referred to in the movie as "Laslow". Thompson attempts to cover the Super Bowl and the 1972 Presidential election in his typical drug-crazed state, but it continually and comically sidetracked by his even more twisted friend Laslow. Allegedly based on actual events.

Best Films of 1980 (35 movies items)

"This is a great Gonzo film, starring Bill Murray and Peter Boyle. I saw this after 'Fear and Loathing' and still Gilliam's take is the superior one but Murray's performance is awesome, right in line with Depp's, possibly better with time..."

"I think that this even might surpass the cult movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Murray´s Thompson has more depth, but we also have to remember that Gilliam´s version is so mental with the lizards and all. "

"Before Depp & Del Toro did Hunter S. Thompson and Raoul Duke, Bill Murray and Peter Boyle rocked it hard and psychotically and stacked with drugs. "

"August 6 I really enjoyed this movie. I thought that Bill Murray was very convincing as Hunter S. Thompson. Peter Boyle also did a good job playing his character. It's too bad this movie isn't well known as the other Hunter S. Thompson adaptations. It does not deserve to be overlooked."
