Hilarious
17 January 2008 | by Kevin-94See all my reviews

This film is now available on DVD. It's included in one of Steven Wright's recent stand up comedy DVD's. Anyone looking to see it or own it can find it there.

Check it out. I love the contrast of the staid, serious style with Steven Wright's hilarious modern-style surreality. It reminded me of Woody Allen's great comedy "Love and Death."

It was laugh out loud funny. And the black and white photography was beautiful.

Favorite moment: When Wright shared with Becky all that he had learned about life.
