Shy 14-year-old Duncan goes on summer vacation with his mother, her overbearing boyfriend, and her boyfriend's daughter. Having a rough time fitting in, Duncan finds an unexpected friend in Owen, manager of the Water Wizz water park.
A PR specialist refuses to market a car called a "Howard" - a colossal error that loses him a billion dollars and makes him a national joke. He loses his hair, shaves his beard, takes a new name, and moves to Martha's Vineyard. Jump ten years: "Rolly" is a popular local whose sangfroid evaporates when the Howard's inventor moves to the island. Rolly, his old self unrecognizable, hatches a plan to rid the island of his nemesis; he also decides to woo the billionaire's wife. Fellatio, a former girlfriend, a woman who's lost weight, her boyfriend, the band Chicago, a menacing Chechen, a bus load of ill children, and a pair of ne'er-do-wells with experience with explosives figure in the story.

I've never been a fan of Larry David. In most of the stuff where I've seen him he comes across as weird. Even so, "Clear History" is a very funny movie. This is mostly because David's character is basically every character that Woody Allen plays. This is most apparent in his conversations with Liev Schreiber's menacing Chechen. You just gotta appreciate the effort that David's vengeful milquetoast puts into his scheme, even tricking Kate Hudson's character about his identity. I actually thought that the funniest character was Michael Keaton's quarry operator. Basically, Larry David is no great comedian, but he can be funny when he tries. I recommend this movie.
