Great idea...Empty result
16 June 2001 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

A Bored middle aged man decides to drop out of society and travel the country playing out his unfulfilled fantasies and personas. Although this is a really fun idea, with Benjamin playing the part quite well, it fails to deliver. Having no real conclusion doesn't help either. The best part comes when Benjamin gives his students a completly incomprehensible lecture. Character actors Francis and Wills help immeasurably.
