The Underpants (2006)
A seriously funny adaptation of Carl Sternheim's classic 1910 farce skewering the obsessions and ambitions of the petit bourgeoisie, The Underpants brings together some of Seattle’s finest comic talent in the story of a young wife who becomes a not altogether unwilling celebrity when she loses her lingerie in public -- much to the dismay of her conservative bureaucrat husband! Thinking man’s fool Steve Martin whips up a confectionery new take on an old recipe, mixing bawdy irreverence with elegant wordplay for an evening of giddy, subversive fun.
