Trying waste of time
1 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Judge Reinhold does angst ... again.

Stockard Channing does brittle ... a lot.

Linda Purl does ... very little.

All to the accompaniment of a mournful cello solo.

Trite story anchored by Jed (Reinhold) narrating in an equally lackluster manner.

The plot? Married man falls for woman he always hated. Ho-hum.

Not funny. Not original. Not insightful. Sense a trend? The writer, Richard Greenberg, writes for the stage, which may explain the style.

Christopher Guest hadn't had much directing experience yet. It shows.

The one consolation is that this series isn't likely to appear on DVD.
