Vacuuming Completely Nude in Paradise

Vacuuming Completely Nude in Paradise ★★½ 2001

Not only is Pete's (Begley) girlfriend tired of stripping to support them but she won't put out until he gets a real job. Off he goes to the local doortodoor vacuum sales office and is placed under the dubious tutelage of polar opposite Tommy (Spall)—a frantic, morally bankrupt, yet very experienced and successful salesman. The jocularity is plentiful in this BBCTV production as the contest for the “Golden Hoover” pits all the sales folks against Tommy. Spall excels in punching out his frenzied lines while director Boyle's use of the digital video format captures the essence of office life in this grim sendup. 75m/C VHS, DVD . Timothy Spall, Michael Begley, Katy Cavanagh, Caroline Ashley; D: Danny Boyle; W: Jim Cartwright; C: Anthony Dod Mantle; M: John Murphy. TV

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
