Another terrific comedy of errors
18 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

Starting with Larry acting for none other than director Martin Scorsese, this is a packed episode of comic complications. Larry is shocked to discover, on visiting his father, that his mother passed away while he was working in New York. Apparently, his father (Shelley Berman) was told by his late-wife that he shouldn't bother Larry while he was away in New York as it would spoil his time there! It's not long before Larry realises that his mother's death is a get-out-of-jail-free card for unwanted appointments.

This is a fun installment and there are appearances by Richard Kind as Cousin Andy, the aforementioned Martin Scorsese and Richard Lewis.

8 out of 10. Superb.
