[Who wants Cake?]
Seeing as I reviewed a drug scare movie earlier this week (and that I've been rewatching the best high school show ever, "Strangers With Candy"), I thought it would be behoovie for me to post the 1970 short film The Trip Back. This PSA follows the former boozer, user, and loser Florrie Fisher as she yells at a group of high school students about the dangers of drug addiction and prostitution.
Although, more generally, the show "Strangers With Candy" was a satire of After School Specials, Amy Sedaris' character Jerri Blank was specifically based on Ms. Fisher. And the resemblance is uncanny. Any fan of the show will instantly recognize that its creators and writers [Amy Sedaris, Stephen Colbert, and Paul Dinello] liberally stole chunks of dialogue directly from Fisher for use in their sitcom. I don't know if The Trip Back would be of interest to anyone who hasn't seen Strangers With Candy, but I sure got a kick out of it. The moral of the story: watch fucking "Strangers With Candy".
