If I had known that Elaine May wrote and directed "Ishtar", I would have gone to see it on the big screen. I just read that at first she guessed that the movie's bad press was fueled by the CIA - logical, considering her depiction of US/Middle East relations. Despite movie studios' interference and over-editing, her "A New Leaf" and "In the Spirit" are also amazing, wonderful, unique, hysterically funny movies.

This is the most ridiculously funny movie EVER! Quite a fluke, my license plate has HWK in it so I tend to think of myself as the ever popular and cool "Hawk" from Ishtar. I have not had luck in finding any others outside of my family that enjoy the sheer brilliance that is Ishtar. The songs are catchy, if not a little embarrassing (I find myself cringing through most of the movie). I am a self-admitted Ishtar nerd and it's nice to meet the rest of you. Happy Birthday fellow Ishtart Sondra!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think my first exposure to Ishtar was when my dad rented it at the video store when I was in high school. We loved it then and had no idea it was a "box office flop" until later on when everyone started parroting that phrase in connection with Ishtar. It is so true that people who say that have never seen the movie. I bought it on VHS about 14 years ago and have just about worn it out showing it to people, making Ishtar Converts. Everyone I've shown it to loves it. I think that besides musicians, it also appeals to English majors (I was one, and I had an English professor who had an Ishtar poster on his office wall,) or just anyone who enjoys intelligent humor as opposed to "Dumb and Dumber" type humor. You can see yourself in Chuck and Lyle if you have ever sung or danced in the bathroom mirror and thought to yourself, you know, I could be an entertainer. Or if you have ever made up a little song about how depressed you are. "I'm finally on the edge/I'm finally on the ledge of my life/when the tears won't even come, when the pain is so big, I'm finally on the ledge of my life." I'Il always be in love with Dustin Hoffman because of this movie. Plus, he just has that look; kind of mean-looking, but with character. And the way he walks - you can only do that with a small body. Have you ever seen a big sports car? Which leads to my all time favorite line from Ishtar, which I say all the time, and no one gets it: "Oh, you so idealize me." If you are reading this and you have not seen Ishtar, find the movie and see it. It will definitely make you think twice about believing everything you hear without checking it out for yourself.

Love the movie. Saw it in the theater. Should have bought that copy on laser disk. I do have a VHS copy and that is why I'll always keep a working player around.

YES! the website is great. i've always thought the harsh reviews were primarily motivated by group envy, i.e., a desire to take hoffman and beatty down a notch. as i told a friend recently, switch out beatty and hoffman with ben stiller and owen wilson and suddenly you've got a summer blockbuster that the critics love. however, the movie could not have been more perfectly cast (imo). as to the quotes, how bout chuck's pickup line in one of the bar scenes..."i want to get in a clinch with you, break of a pinch of you, kiss every inch of you...." (maybe not the right order...i'm at the office so can't check it.) anyway, gotta get back to work and thanks again.

It's funny how people don't understand this kind of comedy. It really is genius. I guess it's like people who don't like the Simpsons. Go figure. The best part is when Charles Grodin is telling Dustin Hoffman that he was being bugged with the pen. Check out Dustin Hoffman's shifty eyes. Classic!

Actually, now that I think about it, the song they played at the AFI TRIBUTE is actually called PORTABLE PICNIC. But it will always be known as the "HOT FUDGE LOVE" song to Ishtar geeks like me....

Did anyone watch the AFI TRIBUTE TO WARREN BEATTY a few weeks ago on the Bravo channel I believe? I couldn't believe it. During the end credits, they actually played the completed version of Warren singing HOT FUDGE LOVE. Brilliant! I wonder how many people watching even knew what it was?

I've been looking for 20 years for someone to talk Ishtar with.
This site is NIRVANA for me!
