In this scene from Ishtar, songwriters Rogers and Clarke (Warren Beatty and Dustin Hoffman) try their hands at being a cover band. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work out too well.

One of the things I really like about the film Ishtar is how director Elaine May deliberately cast against type. Warren Beatty, who had a reputation as a real Hollywood stud, was cast as the shy awkward one, and the nebbishy Dustin Hoffman was cast as the ladykiller of the two.
