Danny Pepper: It's not honky-dory, it's hunky-dory.

IF YOU LIKE SEINFELD...YOU MUST SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!
23 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

I am an avid Seinfeld fan, and I was so glad that Larry David finally made the transition to film. It turned out great. I was laughing the whole way through. Just like on Seinfeld, the film jokes around about the little things in life. Seinfeld was the show about nothing, and this is the movie about nothing. And it didn't resort to one-joke dullness, which any comedy writer with less talent than David, would've done with a premise like this. The film has three acts. The thing about the quarters and the slot machine and the jackpot was only the first act. The actors play it out well, like actual cast members on Seinfeld. The way they deliver the dialogue, that aura of sarcasm. You can't help but crack up. There are many original sequences. This is the first to movie to feature a self....pleasure scene. No, not a masturbation scene, something.....well, a lot more original. You'll see! And I loved the soundtrack and how it blends well with the mood of each scene. It uses classic music, to give it a sorta old-fashioned feel. Even if I never knew Larry David wrote and directed, it's easy to tell this movie was made by a Seinfeld writer. It has that great Seinfeld vibe that'll keep all its fans rolling in the aisles--or couches if you're watching the tape at home.
