Ira Kane (David Duchovny) and Harry Block (Orlando Jones) are
blamed when the creatures escape. They return to the compound to
confront Dr. Woodman (Ted Levine) and explain things to the governer
(Dan Akroyd). While there, the creatures evolve into primates and
attack. They are driven back after Wayne Greene (Seann William Scott)
gets a gun and kills one. Enraged by the attack, the governer approves
the plan to napalm the creature's habitat area. Afterwords, Woodman
officially removes Ira and Harry from any association with the project
whatesoever. When they leave, Dr. Allison Reed (Julianne Moore) joins
them, sneaking out a sample of the original, un-evolved creature. They
take it to the community college, where several students are throwing an
"End of the World" party. There, they discover that the creature evolves
when provoked by heat. They realise that the napalm will force the
creatures to evolve even quicker. Ira also makes another discovery. We
are carbon based life forms, while the aliens are nitrogen based. On the periodic
table, if you go two down and one over from carbon, you have arsenic,
which is poisonous to carbon-based life forms. If you do the same with
nitrogen, you arrive at Selenium. Selenium, hopefully, will be poisonous
to the aliens. But a new question arises. Where will they get 500
gallons of selenium in one day? The answer: Head and Shoulders shampoo.
Selenium Nitrate is the active ingredient in Head and Shoulders. The
guys fill the fire truck with the shampoo and head for the impact site.
But Woodman has set off the bomb early, and the creatures mold together
and form a giant, worm-like creature. By the time the good-guys are
ready, the alien is about to divide. In order for the selenium to work,
it must enter through an opening. The only one they can find is the
aliens giant sphincter. Ira and Harry climb up the fire-truck's ladder
and fire the creature full of shampoo. It works, and the creature
explodes. Afterwords, Harry and Ira are given full credit for the discovery of life off of earth. Wayne becomes a full fire-fighter. Ira is
about to be publically thanked for saving earth, but disappears into the
fire-truck so that he can have sex with Allison. After the entire ordeal
Ira, Harry, and Wayne becom commercial spokesmen for Head and Shoulders
Eyes Wide Shut
Apparently, I seem to be the only one who understood this
movie, so I'll help you guys out. William Hartford (Tom Cruise) and his
wife Alice (Nicole Kidman) are having marital problems. William and
Alice go to a party thrown by his boss, where they both pick up "dates".
Alice goes for an older guy, while William gets two hot, younger women.
Alice doesn't persue it though, because she seems to have some form of
moral attachment to her marriage. William would have gone for it, but is
pulled away by his boss. His boss was having sex with a girl named Mandy
(Julienne Davis) who has now O.D.'d. William revives her and returns to
the party. He meets up with Alice who wants to go home. Once there, they
have sex. Afterwords, they discuss sex in the modern world. Alice tells
William that women are underestimated by men nowadays. She tells him of
a time when they were on a vacation, when she saw a man in a navy
uniform. The man and her had stared at eachother and nothing more, but she claims that she felt better then than she would have if they
had had sex. Outraged, William goes out the next day for some sexual
revenge. At first he tries to get together with a hooker. But he ends up
starting a conversation and feels too good to have meaningless sex with
her. Then he finds an old friend of his, a musician named Nick
Nightingale (Todd Field). William follows the information Nick gives him
and finds himself in a mansion in the counrty. Inside is a meeting of a
secret society. The men present wear cloaks and mardi-gras-esque masks.
The women also wear masks, but are otherwise completely naked. There,
couples have freaky sex in front of onlookers. Williams identity is
discovered and he is told that he will be punished. But one of the girls
offers to take his punishment for him. They leader of the society
agrees, but warns William that he must never speak of what he has seen.
The next day, William reads an obituary for Mandy, the drugged up whore
he saved. William thinks that Mandy was the girl in the mansion, and that she was killed because of him. William is confronted by his
boss, who claims to be a member of the secret organization. He claims
that the whole ordeal with the crowd turning on him and the girl
offering to undergo his punishment was nothing more than a show that was
put on to scare him out of ever speaking about what he saw. William goes
to return the mask and cloak he rented for the trip last night to a
costume shop run by a Russian man named Milich (Rade Sherbedgia). When
William had been there the previous night, Milich had caught his
daughter (Leelee Sobieski) having sex with 2 chinese men. Milich had
told them he was going to call the cops. When William arrives today,
Milich is talking pleasently with the man. William asks him what is
going on, and Milich tells him that a deal can always be made. When he
finishes saying this, he looks to his daughter, who eyes William
lustfully. William, now thoroughly confused, goes to see the hooker from
the previous night.
She isn't there, but her roomate is, She tells William that the girl was
diagnosed with AIDs that morning. Now William understands the truth
about sex in the modern world. Sex is no longer about love or emotion.
It's about satisfying your raw, carnal urges. Man no longer loves, but
lusts. Mankind no longer cares about emotion, we are nothing but sexual
predators. Devastated, William decides to make things right by
confessing everything to Alice. Alice takes it badly, but understands
that her husband truly loves her and had to undergo this terrible ordeal
to truly understand that. And, in the tradition of all of Kubricks
greatest films, this one has an ironic ending. After Williams
frightening journey into the horrors of sex, Alice decides the way that
they must resolve their problems is for them to have sex together as
soon as possible.
