Larry Ravioli Premiere Event, 5 May 2013
Author: Elaine Clista

Summary: Slapstick comedy has a variety in innuendos.This one has gleaming jests of wisecracks. One act after another, the parallels are so tight you must be fully aware when viewing each scene or you may become confused since this slapstick is brilliantly fast paced with successions of dazzling genius. Woody Allen-Mad TV gone wild.

Based on the real life biography of a secret agent crooner, the real valorous gigs are too dangerous to discuss on film. This short film stated as a musical is only a byproduct- toot- tool to lure viewers to succumb to the Ravioli movie and watch it. Extremely shrewd to express as such since this has high cadenza notes of tremolo, crescendo laughter. A laugh track was added to allow you to smile wider along with the very humorous Three Stooges appeal. Unexpected not as a musical but that is what Larry does..... The unexpected to surprise you!

This triple threat talent gives generously to the viewer in many quick synopsis scenes which gives one moment time to think what is going to happen next. Larry keeps you guessing! There is not enough time in a short film to give all the increments one desires to see. Gina loves Larry is only a minor distraction to offset the real forces of slapstick danger to slap you in the face with more humor to spare.

Larry Ravioli projects all the emotions a real man should have in real life! He loves everything politically correct. Any viewer who slices and dices Larry as a no talent really lost a part of their own inspirations on life. The buzz buzz of show biz creates many kinds of friendships and to judge anyone is only judging oneself. The bottom line business here is slapstick! Slapstick requires great skills in funny and the cast reflected it in every scene! Humor over the top! Larry's wide eyed effulgence upon hearing his debts he must repay is one Oscar worthy moment in scene stealing! From the comedy of errors in the staircase scene to Denise the stalkers cake baking easy door escape route, my jaw was mixed up between laughing or smiling! So many slapstick quips, one had to keep the pace to watch with intensity of the skills rolling forth on the screen! Wise talents of pure fun!

I only regret that at the very end of this short,flick,film biography was I wanted more of "Ravioli, el Dante! " Larry's consistent foibles are right to the end crashing yet another hilarious debt he must repay to the floor ! Sad I had to see this short film end so abruptly with hilarious fashion! Props to this winning short film! Pass the Italian sauce for an encore !
