Sorry, Charlie: This Just Isn't That Funny
10 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This short feature is a vehicle for Edgar Bergen to do his famous ventriloquist routine with "Charlie McCarthy."

Edgar plays "Dr. Wilbur Grant," an eye specialist. Young "Charlie" is in his office with a note from his school teacher saying the kid needs glasses. Edgar performs several eye tests on him and shows him some glasses, one with windshield wipers on them! "Charlie," of course, has all the witty lines. The only problem was - at least with me - I didn't find any of them funny. I don't think too people today would laugh at any of this. Nonetheless, Charlie goes along with the doctor but really is only interested in the doctor's pretty assistant (Christina Graver) Charlie is one horny kid for only a nine-year-old!

I did laugh in the final seconds (literally) when the doctor and the kid went fishing and Charlie could put those windshield wiper glasses to good use. Otherwise, this was boring, to be honest.
