Pass the Ammo est un film américain réalisé par David Beaird, sorti en 1988.

Synopsis

Curry is the Rev. Ray Porter, who runs a Pentecostal faith healing and televangelism empire based in Arkansas. A small group of stereotypical rednecks, one of whom was bilked out of her inheritance by Rev. Porter's ministry and another of whom just got out of prison, try to rob Porter's ministry. A series of wrong turns inside the church during the robbery leads the robbers onstage right in the middle of a broadcast, and the three robbers turn what was supposed to have been "just" a robbery into a hostage situation. During the hostage negotiations, a series of snowballing scandals involving the ministry come to light. The robbery, hostage taking, and scandal revelations are all broadcast live over satellite television as locals gather in bars to watch. Rev. Porter and the robbers develop a rapport during the hostage situation that resembles shop talk among thieves, as they discuss the best ways of investing stolen money. One comic subplot involves the Christian network's producer, a drug-addled electronics wizard named Stonewall who decorates his workspace with Pink Floyd posters, but was hired by the network because "he has found the Lord...he told us so himself." Another subplot involves a local sheriff, himself also an archetypal redneck whose duck hunting trip was interrupted by the incident, who seems to sympathize with the would-be robbers. The film is partly about his moral struggle in trying to enforce the law when his sympathies lie elsewhere. He just wants to see the situation end with nobody getting hurt, and butts heads with the network's owner and federal agents who demand harsher action. The owner of the satellite network, whose character is based on Jerry Falwell, demands that the National Guard be called in leading to a siege and climactic ending.

Journaliste pour la chaîne locale de Buffalo, Bruce Nolan est réputé pour ses sujets humains et originaux. Pourtant, sous ce personnage léger, se cache un homme à deux doigts d'exploser qui n'en peut plus d'être évincé des bonnes places. Même sa compagne, Grace, a de plus en plus de mal à le calmer. Lors de son premier reportage en direct, Bruce ne supporte pas la nomination de son rival Evan Baxter comme présentateur et perd les pédales en direct sous le coup de l'émotion. Il se fait renvoyer et, prenant la défense d'un SDF, il est lui-même violenté par les agresseurs. Plus tard, à la suite d'une perte d'attention, il est victime d'un léger accident de la route et s'en prend à Dieu qui lui répond.

The Party Animal is a documentary-style comedy about a sex-starved man, Pondo Sinatra, a 26-year-old college student whom everyone agrees is doomed to die a virgin. Desperate to break what seems to be a cosmic curse, he tries ever more bizarre schemes to seduce one the sexy, scantily-clad women who seem to be everywhere, taunting him and enjoying his misery. Despite his best efforts, however, he is rejected everywhere, even at the local cathouse. When Pondo threatens to kill himself, Studley, his ladykilling best friend, tries to help him in his quest to "get him a little", as does Studley's mentor, a wise old janitor named Elbow. The attempts include: a Cyrano de Bergerac-type seduction whereby Studley tells Pondo what to say to a girl via a remote microphone; sending Pondo to buy elegant new clothes (he goes to the Punk store by mistake and leaves looking like Quasimodo); taking massive quantities of drugs because "girls love drugs"; and using the world's biggest vibrater, the Moby-M5 (the M-5 episode provides a pretext for a scene where two porn store employees discuss strategic arms limitation treaties, using various dildos as props).
