The unstoppable duo is known around town for pulling the funniest pranks, getting the hottest dates and throwing the best parties. And if anyone even dares to compete with them, there is going to be hell to pay. Come take a look at the life of your hero, the handsome, hilarious Reggie Mantle.”

    Ashley, I particularly enjoyed your review of the documentary Transfatty Lives. Based on that, I wonder if you’ve ever seen Sick: The Life and Death of Bob Flanagan, Supermasochist? It’s a disturbing film, but powerful, and one that I think has a lot in common with Patrick O’Brien’s work. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120126/
