Quotes

Ellen: Was everything a joke to you?
Larry Lapinsky: Not everything.
Herbert Berghof - Acting Coach: See, you're joking right now, right?
Larry Lapinsky: What do you want me to say?
Herbert Berghof - Acting Coach: Joking is what's doing you in. Joking is the American actor's disease. It's the American person's disease. Because what you're doing is you're keeping reality out so that it won't touch you. The worst kind of joking you can do is keep life out. Commenting, editorializing, joking - terrible! Don't do it. It's fatal.

Paul Mazursky's memoir of life in 1950's NYC
1 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is not a great film but it is sweet and has it's moments. It also has a cast of soon to be stars. While it was interesting to see Shelley Winters when she could still pull off dark hair, it was even more interesting to see a young Christopher Walken and a young Jeff Goldblum. Also seen are Vincent Schiavelli of character actor fame and an almost microsecond uncredited cameo by Bill Murray.

The movie isn't great but for a movie fan its worth the time if for no other reason to see if you can spot all of the soon to be's.
