best episode of season 4
11 May 2008 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

this the best episode of season 4 because its one of those episodes that they are outside and its one plot not following 4 stories,and its hilarious cause there going to the movies but the get lost and meet some funny characters its just "great". this is no just the best of season 4 is one of the best in the whole bunch.

so if you ever buy the series check to have season 4.and a good thing about the movie its hilarious all the jokes are funny even the idea of the plot. but i don't wanna give anything away to spoil it but this is a must see Seinfeld episode its as much fun as "the jimmy" and better than the "smelly car" and they even give jokes about the movies the sounds,the names i could watch it again and again and wont get tired of it.

giddy up for "the movie"
