As Vulture said: Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire Are Still Very Serious About This ‘No Don’s Plum’ Thing.

Don's Plum's writer/producer Dale Wheatley really wants you to see this movie. He says so on his website, Free Don's Plum Dot Com, that he is willing to send you a copy of it. Take him up on the offer because you basically can't find it anywhere (except Scarecrow Video) since some people don't want you to see it. It's a curious piece of film history that will likely become more valuable as we get further away from the '90s and the film's subjects, the "Pussy Posse."

Significant members of said posse included Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Kevin Connolly—all of whom are in Don's Plum, an infamous film which a very skewed documentary released by the New York Post covered in detail in 2019. This indie, black and white, improvised hangout movie shows a version of the Pussy Posse chilling in a diner, called Don's Plum. They act casually misogynistic, try to get laid, and fight. It's attractive because of its actors, but it's a feature film that should have been a short film; a bare display of '90s male chauvinism that can be surprisingly enjoyable, with plenty of fans. But I was bored. CHASE BURNS

Find it in the Drama section. Or rent it by mail!. There's a blurry version on YouTube, be we don't count that as streamable per our column rules*.


USA, 1983, 92 min, Dir. Allan Arkush

I wanna hang with Reggie Wanker.

Get Crazy is a wonder. I mostly say that because I choked on my coffee when (spoiler) thee Lou Reed waltzed in front of the camera as Auden, a spoof of Bob Dylan. His character is not even close to the main point of the movie. But I will say Get Crazy is worth watching simply to see this rock legend give a rather stiff performance as a hippie folk star then play an acoustic version of "Little Sister" over the closing credits. The stuff of dreams.

Set on New Year's Eve at the fictional Saturn Theater in L.A., Get Crazy follows stage manager Neil (Daniel Stern) as he tries to wrangle the night's talent so that the concert can go off without a hitch. There are a few things in his way, however. The kind and ailing owner's scheming nephew, Sammy (Miles Chapin), is trying to sell the venue out from under everyone; there's an enormous fire in the basement; a visiting stage manager Willy (Gail Edwards) is super hot. Things get, well, CRAZY!!!!!!!!

Also worth mentioning: Malcolm McDowell as Reggie Wanker (a Mick Jagger spoof), Bill Henderson as King Blues (a Muddy Waters spoof), Lori Eastside as Nada with her fifteen-member band (a Bangles/Go-Gos spoof), and Howard Kaylan as Captain Cloud (a Strawberry Alarm Clock spoof). JAS KEIMIG

*The fine print: Unstreamable means we couldn’t find it on Netflix, Hulu, Shudder, Disney+, or any of the other hundreds of streaming services available in the United States. We also couldn’t find it available for rent or purchase through platforms like Prime Video or iTunes. We don’t consider films on sites that interrupt with commercial breaks, like Tubi, to be streamable. Tubi is like Neu Cable. And yes, we know you can find many things online illegally, but we don’t consider user-generated videos, like unauthorized YouTube uploads, to be streamable.
