The Bubbles

Putney Swope (1969)
dir. Robert Downey, Sr.

Boogie Nights (1997)
dir. Paul Thomas Anderson

from TrixRabbi, who says: "Same general concept, and PTA is a big fan of Downey so it's almost for sure an homage."

  1. PTA cast Downey Sr. in Boogie Nights (he was the "MP/YP" guy), named one of the characters Buck Swope, and in the audio commentary said "This is from Putney Swope." So it's pretty clearly an homage.
