That's Quite A Line-Up, I Must Say
25 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

I didn't realize when this thing would be airing and forgot about it. I got to see about half of it.

It was okay, I guess, but I suppose Mississippians are kind of wary of Hollywood types stereotyping us.

The benefit was held in Oxford, of all places. For those who don't know the layout, Oxford is in northern MS.

Okay, but the hurricane hit on the coast, which is as south as you can get in Mississippi and still be on land.

Why wasn't it held in Jackson? Heck, they could have done it in north Jackson, in Madison-Ridgeland, and it still would have been close enough.

Closer than Oxford was.

Nevertheless, Ray Romano did make a fairly good joke about arriving at the Oxford international airport. If there is a landing strip of some sorts there, that is largely all it is. A landing strip. Don't know. I'm not familiar with Oxford.

Performance-wise, it was the same stock behavior these guys turn out on every appearance they make like this.

The only ones I recall were Jason Alexander doing Broadway ditties (Jason, your in MS. Broadway? You could have let us hear how you do some country songs and that probably would have been a wee bit more memorable) and Marilyn McCoo and Bill Davis Jr toward the end.

Morgan Freeman referred to the southern food. Alas, MS has more going for it than the dinner plates.

I just hope it reached the right people to donate, which then reached the right people who would truly benefit from their presence.
