Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (1969)

Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice is quite possibly one of the funniest films I have ever seen. The gorgeous Natalie Wood and Robert Culp play Bob and Carol a couple who have just returned from a sort of psychological retreat where they have learned to really be open with each other. Elliott Gould and Dyan Cannon play their close friends Ted and Alice. Bob and Carol are really hyped up about this new way of life they are living and really want to share it with Ted and Alice. Bob has an affair while on a business trip to San Francisco. He returns home feeling guilty and upset and proceeds to tell Carol all about it. Much to his surprise she is actually quite pleased. This makes for one of the funniest scenes in cinematic history. The film is so totally ridiculous that it is fantastic. A definite must see in my opinion. Overall 3.5/4 Stars Grade = B+
