A Nice Reminder
15 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

This documentary is essentially an extended interview with Gene Wilder. Alec Baldwin is the interviewer. But because both of these men have had long and varied show business careers, it's more like a filmed conversation.

It's fascinating to hear Wilder comment on the many films he's been in. In fact, seeing this documentary is a reminder of just how many great films he's done. If you're someone who has long admired The Producers, Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Sex, etcetera, you'll enjoy hearing Wilder's inside take on these projects.
