Its circa 1960 and an academic and his garbage-mouthed wife trade abusive banter as they entertain, after party hours, a young professor and his wife. Whiskey flows as if it is the last day before prohibition as they try to abase one another to impress the new kids on the block. The skeletons are all OUT! What at the time was termed black humor but now to be politically correct is dark comedy. Eventually the abuse is oriented at the new kids. Fast forward 40 years or so and four moron Friends attempt the same thing: hardly funny. About the same time four other friends (Seinfeld) set about to ruin each other and everyone around them: very funny.
