Good to see Jerry back and treating comedy like AOL!
22 May 2004 | by (Nashville) – See all my reviews

Jerry and Superman hit the streets of New York like two old College buddies. This short is well written by Jerry Seinfeld. It has hints of the interaction of Seinfeld, only with an animated Superman (of course anyone who watched Seinfeld knows the connection). Jerry really captures what it would probably be like to be friends with someone as "super" as the man of steel. That's the good... now for the bad.

Okay, it has been long enough since we've seen Jerry Seinfeld that as fans of the show we can almost forgive the fact that he sold us out. This program was a long form commercial disguised as a short film/show. I mean there were a couple of funny "Seinfeld" type moments, but you really just felt like a sucker when he whipped out the American Express card. Don't get me wrong. I still think Seinfeld is great, but roping us into what we think is sitcom style short film and then smacking us in the face with an ad is low. I mean it was like having an account with AOL!
