The movie also reaffirmed my philosophy of B.C.A.S.—Billy Crystal Always Sucks.

Yeah, so I finally watched this tonight, and my basic reaction was: that's it? Maybe I was expecting too much. I think I was expecting a comedy. I think I was expecting Mel Brooks or Terry Gilliam. I think I was thinking how much better and funnier and wilder this would be if it had been directed by Terry Gilliam instead of a sitcom star. I suppose there is some "humor" in this movie, but it isn't really funny humor. It's more like wait, wait, I think he's going to say something funny...oh, maybe not humor. And it seemed like everyone was mumbling. Am I the first person to notice this? Is there wax in my ears? There is, but let's pretend there isn't so that my point may stand unchallenged.
