Got to love the woodster.
10 December 1999 | by (Fargo) – See all my reviews

A delightful view into the lives of legends lost. It has heart and soul. Besides the lines being hilarious, it is funny just to look at Allen and Falk together.

If you enjoy woody's acting and simon's writing then definitely check this one out.
