In this hour-long episode, Jerry performs the biggest show of his life in Atlantic City. He receives a rather generous pay check for the event, and decides to buy his father a Cadillac. Unfortunately, doing so puts Morty in the hot seat with the condo board of directors, where he serves as president. Morty is accused of stealing money from the board, and ultimately gets removed from his post as president and kicked out of the condo. Meanwhile, thanks to Elaine, George can score a date with "My Cousin Vinnie" star Marisa Tomei but Elaine objects because of George's engagement with Susan. Kramer turns the tables on the cable company when they want to disconnect his service. Written by halo1k

"We're gonna be late for the premiere"
31 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

I think this episode has some good ideas but the execution was very poor.

First of all, there's absolutely no need for this episode to be an hour long. I mean, you could see certain scenes that go on longer than they should clearly because they just didn't have enough material. Besides that, it's just not that funny. The ideas are good but the execution was not the best.

Kramer's story is funny in paper but the way they handled it not only was repetitive and monotonous but it made the story even more disjointed with the rest of the gang. The cinematic style was just out of place. George's story has a good idea: infidelity. That's a key aspect of marriage, but I don't think that the Marisa Tomei idea was the best. And Jerry's story line is simply boring. I don't know, Jerry's parents are not between my favourite supporting characters and this story is just so thin in paper that it's obvious they couldn't fill forty minutes of good material. And finally, Elaine's participation in George's story or her sudden change of heart for Jerry was just weird. I mean, it looked like she was constantly flirting with him and those scenes were just awkward.
