The Party Animal

Overview

College student Pondo Sinatra Matthew Causey is anything but a party animal in this sexually explicit, low, low-budget film about his main goal in life: luring coeds into his boudoir, or wherever. Pondo is more successful at attracting flies than women, and so he begs the Devil himself to help him out a little -- and lo and behold, the winsome Miranda Suzanne Ashley shows up as if on cue.

Pondo is more successful at attracting flies than women, and so he begs the Devil himself to help him out a little -- and lo and behold, the winsome Miranda Suzanne Ashley shows up as if on cue. Some foggy dream sequences are probably meant to explain her presence, but exactly who she is seems to be irrelevant to connecting one sexual sequence with another -- which apparently need no real reason for continuity anyway.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
As far as sex comedies go, 1983's Party Animal has it all -- sex, laughs and plenty of sexy '80s glitz. Despite its main protagonist being a hedonistic hornball with little to no redeeming values, the flick still succeeds, thanks to plenty of surreal sight gags and a slamming soundtrack. Featuring choice cuts from the Buzzcocks, early R.E.M., the Fleshtones, and the Untouchables (among many others), Party Animal surprises the viewer with each musical cue and gives it an edge that sets it apart from its kin from that era. Classic moments include an off-the-wall scene with an oversized rocket sex toy, while the punk party clip features the cool nerd ingesting some of the most ludicrous amounts of drugs ever seen in a teen comedy (including coke lines cut from a butcher knife). The movie also gets points for the weird ambiguity attached to the Devil character that bookends the flick as well as an out-of-nowhere finale that puts a surreal touch to such a genre piece as this. With dialogue that nails at least a half dozen delicious memorable quotes, Party Animal cements itself in the pantheon of early '80s sex comedies and proves to be a forgotten gem for those that like shameless T&A flicks with a heavy party attitude.
