A one-of-a-kind pseudo-documentary about the obsessions of the oddball residents of Austin, Texas, this hilarious film celebrates the lifestyle of "slacking" while commenting subtly on politics, relationships and the media. As captured by director Richard Linklater, Austin's a place where you can purchase Madonna's pap smear, buy a book on JFK called "Conspiracy a-Go-Go," or just hang out. 97 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English stereo; Subtitles: English; audio commentary by Linklater, others; deleted scenes; featurettes; photo gallery; theatrical trailer. Also includes the bonus feature "It's Impossible to Learn to Plow by Reading Books" (1988). Two-disc set.
