Really dumb episode
Caught this episode this morning. While the series overall was fairly funny, this represents one of the weaker ones. We start with a bunch of kittens being delivered to the Williams' residence. Supposedly this is a "practical joke" from Charley. How it is supposed to be funny is something I cannot answer.
Then we get Rusty and Linda telling Daddy how funny their new maid is. The maid comes out and does a couple of non-speaking impressions that are well done and amusingto kids. She quickly tells Danny that those are just for the kids. She really is a singer and a dancer. All her life, she's been dying to break into show business. Danny can't shoo her away quickly enough, without hearing her sing a note. Then he gets the idea that he could convince Charley to hire this "singer" for the Copa by pretending she is already famous. He works the scheme to perfection.
But he feels remorse when learning the maid has heard about getting her chance and when she tells him how important this is to her, he decides he can't tell her it was a joke. He orchestrates it to keep Charley from seeing her until she performs, but that doesn't happen. She goes onstage and sings wonderfullya big hit.
A good practical joke involves getting the victim to do something silly or foolishlike Rob Petrie "fixing" the phone, or thinking he was, anyhow. In neither "joke" here does the victim do anything foolish. Each only does something totally logical.
I saved the main part of the focus of this episode for nowDanny was sure the woman couldn't sing because she was somewhat overweight. When Charley saw her, he immediately fainted. Two times, without hearing a note. Throughout the episode, it was assumed she couldn't sing because of her weight. Now this makes no sense to anyone.
This rendered most of the episode as "dumb" because it was centered on the notion that this fat woman couldn't possibly sing. Apparently Danny nor the show's writers never went to the opera.
That Girl: A Limited Engagement (1971)
A disturbingly unpleasant episode
We get a glimpse of the ending of Ann's bridal shower, which appears to have been a fine party in Ruthie's apartment. While it is going on, Don and Jerry are in Ann's apartment. Don seems quite troubled but only reveals what is wrong when Jerry presses him to open up. He has gotten the proverbial "cold feet" that sometimes confronts people before their wedding. He tells Jerry he hopes to figure things out, maybe as soon as tomorrow.
Ann returns and Donald tells her he's too tired to visit with her. He's going home and to bed. Then he adds that he'll call tomorrow because there's something he wants to talk about.
Naturally, Ann wants to know immediately. She is worried about some relatively minor problem but wants to know. Don refuses to say more, which makes her more curious. So she phones him later and tries to get him to tell her that night. Donald is curt with her and this irks her. She phones him back and he is borderline rude. She concludes by saying "I love you" and he doesn't respond. She phones back and tells him that troubled her. Don is now somewhat upset that she can't wait for tomorrow to hear what he has to say and he hangs up on herwithout any "I love you."
Even though it now must be late at night, we next see Don leaving his apartment to go see Ann, only when he gets to his apartment lobby, Ann is getting on the elevator to see him. They continue this "argument" in the elevator, befuddling another passenger, who merely wants to ride without hearing the quarrel.
Finally, Donald tells Ann that he isn't sure if he wants to get marriedto anyone. Ann is so upset, she hands him back the engagement ring and goes home without ever asking the obvious question of "Why?" We spend several minutes with Ann at home talking to Ruthie, contemplating no more Donald in her life, wondering what might be wrong. Of course they come to no conclusions.
(Spoiler alert, if you need it) Of course, Donald comes over for the final scene and tells Ann he came to his senses and does indeed want to marry her and everything ends happily. I am sure nobody watching this series for the first time was surprised at that ending.
Here's what's wrong with this plot. You can have a serious thing happen in a comedy, but when most of the episode is based on a serious plotDon doesn't believe he wants to marry his fiancéeit is virtually impossible to generate many laughs. The viewers care about the main characters and thinking something seriously wrong is going to happen ruins virtually any chance of laughing. Guest or minor characters can back out of a marriage, or perhaps seem on the verge of divorce, but the story has to be about other things or it isn't funny. Dick Van Dyke had a flashback episode to where Rob had cold feet, but that was only for a minute or so, then the rest of the episode was about him trying to get to the church on time, and what happened after. Here, we spent about 95% of the episode with Donald seriously thinking he didn't want to marry Ann.
The biggest thing wrong was when Ann learned about Donald's doubts. It seems automatic to me that anyone would immediately say, "Tell me what's wrong. Why don't you want to get married? Is it something I did? Don't you love me?" Any of those questions would have led to a constructive conversation that might have helped resolve Don's doubts. Even if they didn't, it would have let Ann know what the trouble was. Instead, she gets mad and goes home and wastes time trying to figure out what is wrong instead of asking the one person who could tell her. It was, of course, really dumb of Don to tell Ann that he wanted to talk about something the next morning. Why get her all concerned right then if you don't want to talk about it. Whether it's your spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend, or your boss, if they say, "There's something we have to talk about tomorrow," you are going to be, at least, a bit worried, wondering what the trouble is, and anxious for the next day to get here.
The only two scenes at all funny were involving the other guy on the elevator, and later when Jerry was with Don in his office. Otherwise, this episode was terrible.
The Lucy Show: Lucy Is a Referee (1962)
Pretty good silly fun
Like most of her shows on all Lucy's series, there is a big unbelievable devise used to get Lucy into a wild situation...but once you get her there, the show may be funny, or not. In this one, it was quite funny to see her miserable attempt at refereeing the youth football game, knowing full well that there is no way someone who knew so little about the game would ever really be placed in such a situation.
The story begins with the two sons informing their parents that their big upcoming football game has been cancelled because there is nobody available to officiate. Lucy convinces the pair that she can do it, by memorizing a couple of facts off the back of football bubblegum cards, and then gets her friend Harry (Dick Martin) to try to teach her some fundamentals--like what a line of scrimmage is, or even what a lineman is.
I liked that they actually had enough kids in the scene to look like a real kids football game. Some series would have made do with 6-8 kids only, trying to suggest the others were off-camera. I would have preferred a part of the show to have been filmed on a real field instead of a tiny fake field in the studio, but it was early-60s TV with quite limited shooting budgets.
Lucy had memorized official signals, even though she had no idea of when to use them. But her officiating in the scene essentially dealt with her bungling the coin toss, getting in the way during the kickoff, then looking the other way and entirely missing the next play. When her son intercepted a pass and raced for the end zone, Lucy forgot she was supposed to be neutral and physically helped him to score--leading to her being chased from the field and the game called off.
Since there was no winning team, nobody got the prize of going to the Giants' upcoming game at Yankee Stadium. Oddly, they talked of the NFL and named the stadium, but never said the name of the team. So Lucy volunteered to pay for all the boys on both teams to see the game. But a big snowstorm that morning caused all the roads to the city to be closed, so she hosted a TV viewing of the game in her home, with Viv helping her serve the food to the two dozen boys.
Then they learned that the heavy snow meant all the boys would have to stay overnight. This led to some tricky sleeping arrangements and another funny scene with Lucy.
In watching the DVDs I just bought of these early episodes, I find that Viv has many of the funniest quips in the show. The two ladies really were a wonderful team.
If you're hung up about how Lucy would never be a referee, you could still enjoy most of the episode, but that wild scene with her in stripes was the funniest of the episode to me. Good, silly fun, somewhat in the mode of the Marx Brothers, or, for my generation, Green Acres.
Good message AND full of laughs
Just saw this again last night. The only other review at present on IMDb has a pretty good description EXCEPT the reviewer claims this is not all that funny. That's where we differ.
The opening sequence sees Andy playing catcher to Opie's pitching on the sidewalk and when a lady comes by to talk to Andy, he props up her umbrella on her shoulder and has her stand, unknowingly to the woman, as if she were the batter while Opie pitches to a squatting Andy. The woman seems amused as Andy explains what he did with her.
The funniest scene in the early going was the return of Tom Silby, who wanders up to Andy on the street and thus shocks him as Andy starts to greet him and then remembers that he hasn't seen this man since "they lowered him"--that is, his funeral. It seems Tom left his wife two years ago after a fight and rather than admit she couldn't keep a husband, she pretended he died and orchestrated a funeral for him.
The scenes with Tom and Andy, including visiting his headstone in the cemetery were hilarious--I think among the funniest scenes in the series that did not include either Barney or Floyd.
I also much enjoyed Andy's rambling criticism of how selfish Opie was for only giving 3 cents to a charity drive and how it embarrasses Andy. He is suddenly stopped by Aunt Bee, who lectures him on how he is showing the same sort of pride that he was criticizing Mrs. Silby for a minute earlier.
In viewing the first episodes of this series in the last week, I am impressed with how much funnier Aunt Bee was than she generally was for most of the series' run. She had a few scenes where she had a witty retort for either Andy or Opie and was quite fun to watch as she listened to Andy's stories to Opie or his rambling about different matters.
That Girl: All's Well That Ends (1970)
Babysitting is boring in this one
This aired as the last episode of the season and it's a shame they didn't just have one less episode this year.
Ann's friend, Janie, has a one-year old baby and wishes she and her husband could be alone sometime. Janie says there are two people she could trust with the baby, her aunt "and, maybe Dr. Spock." That might be the only line in this episode that made me laugh even a little.
It's Ann's birthday and Donald has promised tickets for the big Broadway play for that night. At Don's office his pal Murray enters with the tickets, he bought from a scalper for $15 each. Don calls Ann and tells her he couldn't get tickets and says he'll pick her up for supper at 7:30 that night.
Don lied just to surprise Ann. Right here it doesn't make sense. If he really wanted to surprise her with tickets, why tell her all about getting them BEFORE he phoned to say he couldn't? A good surprise would be these prize tickets out of the blue when she never heard him mention that show.
Ann decides she'd like Janie and her husband to join Donald and her for her birthday supper. Janie agrees to leave the kid with her aunt so the four can dine together. But her aunt has the flu. So Ann magnanimously agrees to babysit so she and her husband can have a night out.
On her birthday, Ann should have figured Donald at least has made a reservation at a special restaurant, or has something special in mind. Logically, she might well have been expecting a proposal, since they had been dating for years. To just cancel the dinner date and let him come over to learn then that he would be spending his evening babysitting was rather inconsiderate of Ann.
Furthermore, I don't see how Donald had this planned. He was supposed to take her to supper and then go to the show. Leaving her place at 7:30 to go to a nice restaurant would have meant there was no chance of getting to the theater before 9 p.m. Plays have only one evening performance and to my knowledge, they do not start at 9 p.m. or later. If Don planned on going directly to the theater, O.K., but any normal person would be rather unhappy to plan on eating about 8 o'clock, then suddenly learn that supper would not be served until approximately 10:30after the show.
Don manages to sell the tickets to Murray, over the phone, but the tightwad who knows how much Don paid for them dickers Don down to accepting just $10 for each one. None of the rest of the show dealt with the play or the tickets. This made it seem like this whole business just got in the way of where they wanted to take this script. It was all about taking care of the baby, particularly when Ann panics and thinks the baby is sick. She pulls out a slender book and claims it has information on every disease known to man. It would have been big enough to have not more than a paragraph on each disease if it really did include everything.
She decides the baby has the mumps, which worries her because she never had them. Now she has to try to remember the name of the baby's doctor. Here again, I throw my flag for "Unbelievable Dialog." This mother of a one-year old who never before trusted her baby with a sitter would NEVER have left the kid without leaving the name and phone number of the doctor, and, the restaurant where she planned to go (which Ann also did not know).
They found the doctor and waited for him to come over. While waiting, Ann read the chapter in that book on psychology and got into a discussion about whether it is ever appropriate to spank a child. She is shocked to learn that Donald thinks there are times when it is acceptable, because she thinks otherwise.
When the doctor came over and (Spoiler alert, if you need it) pronounced the baby perfectly healthy, Ann decided to ask him for his opinion on the misbehaving child question. The doctor quickly responded "I don't care how old he is, that child needs to be spanked." So we see that Ann is in the extreme minority on this point, which may not be the case today. But we don't dwell on this subject, it was just a filler part of the story.
The show is full of these fillers, including a couple too many sweet scenes between the stars. It was well established by this time that they were a loving couple and it was boring to see more scenes showing this. Nothing was advancedthere was no proposal, nothing of the sort even mentioned.
I couldn't even accept that the married couple, on the first night they ever trusted someone to babysit their kid, chose to do nothing more than drive to New Jersey to eat at a restaurant and then come home. Are there not any quality restaurants in Manhattan where they live? Wouldn't they want to go to a movie or dancing or see a sports event or do something other than just eat out? Except for one brief scene in Don's office, the entire episode takes place in Ann's apartment and so little happens beyond the pair talking it is just not possible to rate this episode higher than a 3 on IMDb's scale.
Seinfeld: The Strongbox (1998)
None of the plots are more than O.K.
The title concerns Kramer's plot where he buys a strongbox to keep his "valuables" in after learning there have been several burglaries in the building. He wants to hide his key for the box in Jerry's apartment, but Jerry keeps stumbling upon it.
Early on, Jerry and George are entering Jerry's building and Jerry politely tells a man he doesn't know that he can't let him come in because he doesn't know him. The man forgot his key but says he lives in the building. It turns out he lives right next door to Kramer. It wasn't stated that he just moved in, and Jerry feels quite embarrassed about not knowing him at all.
Meanwhile, George has a girlfriend Maura, who he wants to break up with. When he flatly tells her so, she refuses. She just tells him "We're not breaking up," and continues to act like they are a couple. George doesn't know how to react. Then he gets the idea of getting her to leave him by having an "affair" with another woman, one who appears to live in a tanning salon. When he arranges for them to meet, the two women quietly tell George they "can work this out." Elaine has met a man who refuses to give her his phone number and says very little about what he does for a living. When he seems to be avoiding a woman coming down the street, Elaine figures it was his wife. It turns out to be his social worker, as the man has a dumpy apartment and gets his food, well, some of it, from garbage cans. Elaine goes out of her way to improve his life until learning a key fact that I won't reveal here because it comes near the end of the show.
None of the four plots were more than somewhat funny. I don't see how you decline someone's statement that they don't want to date you anymore. Given the burglaries, Jerry had no reason to feel embarrassed about not letting in a potential burglarif he didn't know him, he didn't know him. Kramer's strongbox appeared to be an easily-portable box that any burglar could easily take and open when he got home"Hey, thanks for putting all your valuables in one easy-to-carry container for me, pal." The Elaine plot seemed the weakest here. Her character in this episode didn't seem bothered when she saw him finding doughnuts in a restaurant garbage bin and eating them. Pretty much in any other episode, she would dump a boyfriend if she just learned that he HAD done this at some point in his life. She would be totally uninterested in dating a man that poor because he couldn't afford to take her to eat at Monk's, let alone to a movie or a play or, well, anywhere.
Frankly, the depiction of this man's lifestyle seemed unrealistic as well. Since he had a social worker who happily blabbed many details of his life to a woman she just met, you have to figure he was getting food stamps/a bridge card. I don't think too many folks getting assistance in that manner go "dumpster diving" like some homeless people do.
I left off any description of the last few scenes involving Jerry and Kramer's attempt to retrieve the key. They were bizarre but really not funny, and definitely dumb. I think even when reviewing an old movie or TV show, you should not reveal details about the last portion of the show. These are the things many viewers might have forgotten that are better if not detailed in a written review. I give this episode a "5" meaning watchable, but not all that funny. That's attempting to compare it to all comedy shows, making it decent in that regard, but the score I give puts it near the bottom on the list of Seinfeld episodes.
Definitely one worth skipping
I felt compelled to provide a review of this episode because at present the only review on this site is by the guy who simply says every episode is a "10." Every single episode of a series cannot, by definition, be a "10" anymore than everything Shakespeare ever wrote could be a 10some of these works are not as good as others.
Kramer's plot gets the title here. He has been donating bloodwe never hear how muchand decided to "withdraw" it from the blood bank and store it himself in his apartment. The illogic of how blood stored in his own freezer could somehow be used if he was in an accident and needed a transfusion right away is only part of the problem with this episode.
George dates a woman who lights a vanilla incense stick right before having sex with him. The aroma makes him immediately leave her place to go the coffee shop to wolf down some food. He then gets the idea of combining his two lovessex and food by eating while in bed with her. We see the two are under the sheet, with George sticking his head out and opening a drawer to pull out a sub and start eating while she, somehow, doesn't notice. That is, she doesn't notice until he gets "greedy" and decides to add a little TV watching to the other two activities.
Elaine visits a friend, who apparently is a single motherthey never saywho asks her who she might recommend as a babysitter. Apparently this woman is wise enough to know Elaine would be a terrible babysitter. But Elaine is so offended by this that she literally accosts Kramer, who has been hired to do the job, right on the woman's front porch and throws him over the side and beats him with a broom so she can babysit. We then see that she has allowed the bratty 7-year-old-or-so kid (he keeps kicking every adult in the shins as soon as he meets them) to run rampant over her, even pouring orange juice into her purse, just so he won't complain about how she treated him.
One night and she wants nothing more to do with him, but her friend now wants her to babysit all the time. Elaine then works to be fired by the friend for being a lousy sitter, but the friend ignores everything she sees except that her boy is now asleep, so Elaine is stuck with the kid.
Jerry is told he is putting on weighteven though he doesn't show itand so his parents hire Mr. Mandlebaum (Lloyd Bridges) as his personal trainer. He puts him through some old-style gym workouts, then hooks him to a rope attached to the back of Jerry's car as Jerry is to run along and keep up. When the car speeds up (due to reasons I won't spoil) Jerry needs a hospital.
There are a few good lines but NONE of these plots were more than a bit amusing. None of them seemed realistic even in the Seinfeld universe. Kramer storing his own blood and Jerry "needing" a trainer when he is normally shown as working out in a gym regularly were dumb enough. How someone can truly eat a big sandwich while engaging in sexor why he would want tois particularly dumb. But perhaps the least logical plot of these four is Elaine's eagerness to be a babysitter when she has never been shown to like kids, then her unwillingness to just tell this friend after the first disastrous try that she can't do it anymore, or that she can't commit to doing it regularly because she has too busy a schedule, is beyond my comprehension. She states that she'd be good at it because she loves bossing people around. But as far as we saw, she never even attempted to boss the kid around because she wanted him to tell his mom how nice the sitter was.
I haven't yet mentioned the un-Seinfeldlike scene where Newman, who recently couldn't stand the thought of Jerry being a guest at his big Millennium party, now has no problem sitting in Jerry's bedroom, presumably on the bed, next to Kramer to watch a movie they rented. There's more weird stuff later but none of it is all that funny. I just cannot give this episode more than a 3.
Kramer's intern, George's fake handicap highlight this one
The main plotcentered on the title, is about an ongoing "bit" the three guys started doing a while ago focused on the imaginary voice, coming out of the belly-button of Jerry's latest girlfriend. They all drag out the sounds, such as "Helllloooooooo!" and laugh about it. This provides them much humor until Jerry stupidly reveals this to the girl, who immediately is offended so much that she gives Jerry an ultimatumif he wants to continue seeing her, he has to drop that voice altogether. Jerry, of course, decides the voice is more important but changes his mind when all his friends tell him they are tired of "The Voice." Elaine has just returned from a long trip to Europe with her boyfriend, Puddy (Patrick Warburton), whom she is constantly breaking up with, then getting back together again withat least, to have sex, and occasionally dinner togetherbefore breaking up again. She makes a bet with Jerry that she will NOT get back with him, then after paying off, keeps doubling her bet and paying off again, as Jerry is rolling in money because Elaine cannot control herself at all.
At the end of the previous episode, George was spotted by his new boss (Gordon Jump, Mr. Carlson from WKRP) running down the street carrying his motorized wheel chair. He had been coming off his big injury and was still legitimately using a cane when he interviewed, and when he learned they were happy to have a handicapped person in their employ and were giving him a nice private bathroom next to his office, he decided to pretend he still needed the cane. Now that they know what a phony he is, George is ostracized by all his co-workers as the boss is trying to force him to quit.
The Kramer plot is the one I liked the best. Troubled by all the mundane things in life that keep him from having time for his big ideas, Kramer arranges with New York University for an intern for his "Kramerica Industries." He has a young man phoning Jerry to arrange to meet at the coffee shop, in 10 minutes, and says he will call back in 5 minutes to confirm the meeting. Darin is happy to do all he can for Kramer and doesn't seem to mind that none of his duties seem to involve any sort of "industry" or workplace.
I thought the "voice" was not more than a little bit funny. On the DVD "Inside Look" we learn that one of the writers had actually done this bit, with his girlfriend also getting quite mad when she learned about it. The difference is that he had imagined a voice coming out of her rear.
This episode treats us to one of the best linesmaybe the bestever uttered by Elaine. It comes right in the beginning, when she joins Jerry and George at Monk's and asks about what is making them laugh. She had been away and didn't know what they had been doing. Jerry says, "It's really stupid, but
" and goes on to explain about "The Voice." Elaine responds, "I've got to start taking these 'stupid' warnings more seriously."
Seinfeld: The Muffin Tops (1997)
Three of Four plots are quite funny
The Muffin Tops has many hilarious moments and a few that stretch things too far and seem kind of dumb.
It opens with George being asked on the street by a total stranger to watch his bag for "a minute." The man never comes back, so George keeps "watching it" by wearing the man's clothes. This, coupled with him checking a map while walking on the sidewalk, gets him mistaken for a tourist by a nice-looking female in the NY Tourist bureau, who, of course, George decides to date because there won't be any risk of her wanting a permanent relationship with someone who will soon be returning home. George's story to her is that he is an executive with the Tyler Chicken Company in Little Rock, Arkansas. He explains his lack of an Arkansas accent in that, while his parents have one, "it sometimes skips a generation." When the girl wants to break up because of the very reason that George liked this relationship, he decides to tell her he is moving to the city. He pretends to be moving into the very apartment he lives in and to have gotten a job with the Yankees, but, of course, this just leads him into trouble when Steinbrenner hears one of his lies to the girlfriend.
Meanwhile Elaine reveals to Kramer that she used the life stories he once sold to Mr. Peterman to embellish the autobiography that has just been published. Kramer goes to the bookstore to co-sign the books with Peterman. He then comes up with an idea which for the writers of this episode was inspired by the real-life Kenny Kramer, who for nearly 20 years has been running his Kramer reality tour in New York, showing places where he and Larry David lived and visited before he became a character in David's new sitcom Seinfeld. Kramer gets an old school bus and runs a Peterman Reality Tour, showing them places he inhabits.
At the book signing, Elaine encounters her old boss, Mr. Lippman and inspires him via her odd eating habit, to open a bakery that only serves Muffin Tops. The idea is to throw away the "stumps" because only the top is tasty. It turns out that nobody wants the stumps, not even garbage dumps, for reasons that only work in the Seinfeld universe.
All three of these plots are quite funny. Fans of the Bob Newhart Show will smile as they see Mr. Carlin (Jack Riley) as one of Kramer's passengers on his bus. The one plot that makes no sense is Jerry's. He is shaving one day and decides his chest hair isn't "even." He tries to shave it even and winds up shaving it all off. On learning his girlfriend likes him that way, he decides to try to fool her by shaving all the time, but when it just begins to grow back, he basically turns into a werewolf like man, scratching his itchy chest in the full moon. I can see others thinking this plot was so wild it was tremendous but to me it just went beyond funny to dumb.
That still leaves ¾ of the plots as funny, letting me happily rate it as a 7 overall. That might make it less funny than most Seinfelds, but a 7 out of 10 is still far better than your average sitcom episode.
I wanted to write this review because the IMDb site has only one other review of this episode, one with which I totally disagree. That reviewer thought this was the worst episode in the series, saying none of the plots were funny. He also, not knowing about the real Kramer reality tour, claims "nobody would pay $37.50 to see the life of a nobody." They have for almost two decades in New York City.
Now You See Me (2013)
Check your brain at the door and you might enjoy it
This film that begins with shots of four different people performing some sort of "magic", mostly on the street (one in a theater) and being brought together for some unknown purpose, winds up mostly being about two police agents (FBI and Interpol) trying to stop this foursome from stealing more millions of dollars than they did in their first heist. The chase leads from Las Vegas to New Orleans to New York and the action is non-stop.
We are never given any characterization to cause us to like this foursome, we know nothing of their backgrounds. This is simply an action piece where we are on a non-stop chase to try to stop their crime spree. Throughout the film, we are given whirling and spinning camera shots that can easily make some viewers feel vertigo. I didn't react that much, but was very bored with the fact that almost every scene had us spinning around the room.
If you think about all that happened after its over, it is impossible to find more than a tiny bit of logic or believability in the entire script. There was no need for the mastermind to bring these four people together, and no reason to think they would happily agree to become wanted fugitives, particularly since they kept giving away the millions that were stolen.
The magic tricks could not really happen on a stage, as shown, but are only workable through the magic of Hollywood.
We never have any reason to care about any of the four "magicians" nor their pursuers. I think the only way to leave feeling it was a good movie is to think no farther than to say, "Wow, they had a lot going on in that one." They did, but almost nothing in there made sense or was logical. You don't have to be Mr. Spock to want a film that makes more sense to call it good.
