Beverly has invited her new neighbours, Angela and Tony, over for drinks. She has also asked her divorced neighbour, Sue, because Sue's fifteen year-old daughter, Abigail, was holding a party in their house. Beverly's husband, Lawrence, comes home late from work, just before the guests arrive. The gathering starts off in a stiff insensitive British middle class way with people who do not know each other, until Beverly and Lawrence start sniping at each other.

Director: Blake Edwards
Starring: Peter Sellers, Claudine Longet, Natalia Borisova, Marge Champion, Gavin MacLeod and Jean Carson

An Indian actor makes a huge mistake during the filming of a costume epic. When the 'Fire this guy' list gets confused with the studio head's guest list for a Hollywood party due to a clerical error, he appears there and everyone assumes he must belong. A great many sight gags and misunderstanding gags are played out at the party where the rest of the film takes place.

Set in the New York club scene of the late 1980s thru the 1990s, a tale which chronicles the rise and fall of club-kid promoter Michael Alig, a party organizer, whose extravagant life was sent spiralling downward when he boasted on television that he had killed his friend, roommate and drug dealer, Angel Melendez.

Originally from Indiana, Alig moved to New York and became an underground legend, known for his excessive drug use and outrageous behavior in the club world. At his peak, he had his own record label and magazine and hosted Disco 2000, one of the biggest club nights in New York in the '90s. He was doing a lot of drugs and, as his addiction got worse, his party themes became darker and more twisted. Alig's saga reached its tragic crescendo when he viciously murdered his drug dealer, Angel, by injecting him with Drano and throwing him in the East River. The power he wielded on the club scene made him feel untouchable, so he didn't hestitate to boast of the murder. The press thought it was a publicity stunt - until Angel's body washed ashore.
