Ray Romano's eight-day drive through the south on a stand-up comedy tour becomes more than he bargains for when longtime friend and opening act, Tom Caltabiano, brings a film student along to document their thousand-mile journey. Together, all three struggle with Ray's obsessions, phobias, and insecurities in this unscripted exploration of newfound fame. Written by
Very funny & insightful look at Ray Romano--he's a regular guy with a ton of hilarious neuroses!
I didn't know what to expect when I heard about this documentary, I thought it was going to be more of a comedy concert movie than an intimate look at the man who starred in the very popular, long-running sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond." But as it turns out, I was totally engrossed the entire time--Ray is as naturally hilarious in real life as he is a talented actor on the screen. It was great to see him interacting with the behind-the-scenes people at the different venues (his comedy performances are interspersed within the road tour framework of the film), driving across the South & freaking out about flies, toxic smells & pre-opened water bottles, & telling his friend/opening act/director of the film Tom Caltabiano how he really feels about his fame, money & insecurities. I highly recommend catching this film either on HBO or when it's released on DVD for its intimate "warts & all" portrayal of one of the most well-known actors/comedians of our time!
