Robin Williams stars in another version of Death of a Salesman. A shorter and more entertaining version, Williams stars as the struggling salesman who can not get by. The world around him and the people in it are against him. At the age of 40, it seems like he is still a teenager as all his friends from the past and the elders in the city treat him like he is still a child. Set in the city in the 1950's, the production value of this movie is terrific. From the old style automobiles to the wardrobe, one of the movie's highlights is the set value. Along with Williams, Jerry Stiller is a surprise hit as the weird sidekick / backstabber in this comical supporting role. The movie tries to end on a funny note but ends up too sad to explain. Instead of at a grave site, Seize the Day ends at a funeral service. As equal as Death of a Salesman, the plot is the same. The opening of the movie has the look of an after school special with the cheaply credits. Don't be fooled by this. This is a good movie to see. Williams and Stiller are great.
