Heavy Petting (1989)





Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Movie Info

Famous baby boomers who lived through the Sexual Revolution recall their sexual awakening during the squeaky-clean 1950s. The hilarious recollections -- courtesy of David Byrne, Spalding Gray, Sandra Bernhard, Abbie Hoffman, Allen Ginsberg and others -- are accompanied by kitschy clips of '50s sex ed videos. Obie Benz's witty, fast-paced documentary was a Grand Jury Prize nominee at the 1989 Sundance Film Festival.

If you haven't seen any of the old classroom reels dealing (ineptly) with sex issues, this is a good place to start.
