Great show
18 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

Okay, so this is not The Dick Van Dyke Show, but it is a decent sitcom. And that's what I loved most, this was a real sitcom. No drama or social commentary in any of the Dave's World episodes. They were just funny and stupid. This is far overdue for DVD.... As for the Dave Barry comparison. Dave's an excellent writer, I have all of his books. But, that doesn't mean his story on film would be very entertaining. Harry Anderson and Patrick Warburton gave standout performances - enough so that I remember them in roles other than Night Court and Seinfeld, respectively. Harry captured Dave probably better than anyone else could. I was very disappointed when this was canceled.
