Quotes

Ellen: Was everything a joke to you?
Larry Lapinsky: Not everything.
Herbert Berghof - Acting Coach: See, you're joking right now, right?
Larry Lapinsky: What do you want me to say?
Herbert Berghof - Acting Coach: Joking is what's doing you in. Joking is the American actor's disease. It's the American person's disease. Because what you're doing is you're keeping reality out so that it won't touch you. The worst kind of joking you can do is keep life out. Commenting, editorializing, joking - terrible! Don't do it. It's fatal.

Will someone give props to this movie?!
18 February 2003 | by (Hoboken, NJ) – See all my reviews

I felt like this is what life must truly have been like in the Village in '53. Everything was in order. I was transported. Special kudos go out to Antonio Fargas, who plays a gay man in a tremendously ballsy portrayal considering his Starsky and Hutch days. Also, to the great chemistry of the cast.

It was sad to see Lenny Baker passed away at such a young age. He was definitely in the Hoffman, Pacino, but funnier mold. He should be remembered.
