Comedic beauty having little to do with FDR
4 February 2006 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen this in a while but I loved it. If you liked the cult TV series 'Get A Life' you'll love this absurd bit of genius. Elliot plays out a one-man show at the community theater for the camera but has very little knowledge of the actual life of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Fans of Chris Elliot can probably begin to guess where that would lead; Odd stories that are as wildly off subject as anything in 'Cabinboy' or as psychologically disturbed as anything in an episode of 'Get A Life' and all delivered within that same blind, delusional self-confidence that you find in much of his work. If you find a copy get it for yourself and get me one while you're at it.
