Watch Billy Crystal Play a Pregnant Man in the Only Movie Joan Rivers Ever Directed

Watch Billy Crystal Play a Pregnant Man in the Only Movie Joan Rivers Ever Directed

Sep 08, 2014

She was wild, outspoken, feminist, and upset a lot of people. Comedy legend Joan Rivers passed away last week. The news hits especially hard in the wake of Robin Williams and Elaine Stritch’s passing. We’re remembering the foul-mouthed fashionista by looking back at her directorial debut, Rabbit Test.

In his first starring role, Billy Crystal played the world’s first pregnant man. Yep. Rivers makes a cameo appearance as a nurse. Michael Keaton also made his film debut in Rabbit Test, and Rivers’ daughter Melissa pops up, too. Hubby Edgar Rosenberg produced the movie.

As The Playlist points out, the film was shot on video (and transferred to film stock), so there’s a real scrappy feel to the whole production. And it’s not too hard to imagine someone like Judd Apatow remaking Rabbit Test for the James Franco, Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd crowd—except with more weed. You can watch a fun and pervy (at least for the time) trailer for the movie below, followed by the full film.
