It ain't smarter than the average comedy!
23 October 2006 | by (Londinium) – See all my reviews

Happy hour - Is the time when a Bar sells cheap liqueur and this is like it's namesake, very inexpensive comedy. It's a live action version of the late 50's Yogi bear cartoon. Lex Medlin who looks and acts like a pint-sized John Goodman -The know-it-all-Yogi and John Sloan who is playing the innocent big-eyed Booboo. Both are boring stereotypical characters in the Friends mode of big city comedy of manners torture that is the lame - hit all the 'demographics' comedy being written today. It has an nostalgic 1950's 'men in a bachelor pad' swinging style to it that unfortunately falls flat with all the extras set as one-dimensional 'dumb' characters that populate these two go-lucky-bachelors lives. Beth Lacke the central female protagonist between the two male Martini-drinkers is so badly written it's 'cringingly' bad and again is in the one-dimensional rabbit hole of characterization that is the epitome that is 'Friends' the stock 'dumb but fun' character writing - she is a heart-of-gold-idiot. Why couldn't any of the female characters have been sassy or bright ? There is even the park ranger out of Yogi played by Jamie Denbo again as a token bitter character that plagues the two 50's brat packers wannabes. The tips of the hat, the four o'clock martinis, the intro music, all whisper sophisticated 50's easy comedy yet this never gets close to the laid back charm/polish necessary to obtain it. Could have been more, so much more - it maybe has too much vermouth or not enough gin, or both. It is very dry and not in a good way, it leaves you feeling thirsty for some real edgy comedy.
