Very very funny (if you like Chris Elliott)
10 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My roommate and I rented this on video about 10 years ago at an indie video store in Minneapolis, MN., and I thought this was a great early nugget showcasing Chris Elliott's "annoying but hilarious" persona... If it surfaces on DVD or cable TV this is worth a spin just for David Letterman's blistering cameo where he ball busts Chris at a stop light. There is also a delicious lampooning of both British TV (it's shot on film for outdoor scenes and video live before a studio audience with a laugh track allowing Elliott to jump between the two mediums) and makes fun of the Partridge Family (the family is also a band). Plus there is a dream sequence where President Abe Lincoln spanks a crying Chris Elliott (Lincoln also shows up again in "FDR, A One Man Show"). Worth ferreting this one out if you're a fan of this brand of humor...
