Blake Edwards' outrageous S.O.B. may never be held in the same regard as Sunset Boulevard or The Player, but as a searing satire about the underbelly of the Hollywood lifestyle, it still ranks as one of the best.

Audience Reviews for S.O.B.

I mostly watched this to see Julie Andrews 45 yr old boobies. Guess what? They were fantastic! The movie was decent too, but no masterpiece.

This movie has an amazing cast and a great deal of potential but it's a little too all over the place.

But...it has one of my favorite things in the world of movies...Squeaky clean actors I like/love doing/saying inappropriate things!

Julie Andrews appears topless and says some bad words and, for me, that makes it almost worth recommending.
