I don't get it. What's the fuss?
He reviewed that one-act I did at the Fulton Fish Market. We did this play at four in the morning. Outdoors. In the rain. One performance. For fish handlers.
And he was there?
Steven Schwimmer. I memorized every line of this review.
I recite it to myself with masochistic relish.

I thought the first two acts kind of dragged; the best parts being Keatons various conversations with the cabbies (that would be a good movie I think). Much of the dialog I found boring and since that's the whole movie, I almost didn't finish it. The third act really picked up, albeit contrived, was still entertaining.
Also as to not make it about Buckner's blunder, they have the character say at the end "We love Buckner" which I thought was kind of a nice thing. Good idea for a movie, I think it was a rewrite away from being really good, but great cast though. Keaton is always good in serious roles and should do more.
