Storyline

A mix of stand-up comedy and sketches, notable for its mixing of live action and computer animation. The "premise" is that a young boy is watching the show on a strange CD that his mom bought. Sketches include "Glass Booth Guy" in which a gas station clerk mocks people from his bullet-proof glass box and a sketch in which a woman is trying to break up with her weird boyfriend (he's a skeleton). The undisputed highlight is "OEDEBATTLE", a parody of Mortal Kombat-style games. In it, the young boy tries to defeat Steve's muscle-bound character; unfortunately, the characters he gets to choose from are "Accountant," "Sick Old Woman," "Little Girl," "Puppy" and "HerbaPet."

Tons of talent... but very few laughs
8 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this special when it aired on NBC a decade ago (it's only airing?) and I remember sitting stone-faced wondering why I was watching it. I thought I'd give it another chance, since I now know who Oedekerk is and I like some of his work. Memory didn't lie on this one, and a decade later I sat through it stone-faced again.

Most of the skits are absolutely moronic. There's lots of unfunny jokes about babies (in space!), skits with a skeleton, and the increasingly obnoxious "Glass Booth Guy" series (a gas station worker who taunts the late night customers), as well as some lame stand-up. A good portion of the special features CG characters who may have looked alright 10 years ago, but they're very dated today. One of the only things that mildly amused me was the closing song, "Things You Never Hear People Say." Thomas F. Wilson also gave me a couple of giggles from his awkward reactions in a skit where he was interviewing an insane film director (played, of course, by Oedekerk). Other laughs were few and far between.

There's no question that there were a lot of talented people involved with this special, but it seems like most of their talent was wasted. Perhaps I'm being harsh and am not in the right frame of mind to enjoy it (I think I'd need a loaded bong), but for me this "special" wasn't.
