Jay Sherman is an overweight and somewhat snobbish New York TV movie critic who is forced to review the most pathetic films to which is he always says, "It stinks." In addition to the film parodies, the show also deals with his professional life working for his tyrannical media mogul boss and his personal life with his friends and family. In a world that seems determined to snub him both in the asinine arts he has to endure and his own difficult relationships, Jay gets along as best he can, while enjoying life's bright spots.Written by

Excuse me, sir. The movie's over.
I'm stuck in the chair!

At the beginning of each episode (just before the opening sequence) there is a scene of Jay in bed asleep. The phone rings or the alarm clock goes off and a different person is on the other end to say something that ruins Jay's morning. For example, in the first episode: "Jay this is your mother, your father and I are taking you out of our will. We feel you already have enough money. Oh yes, and happy birthday." See more »
This show was hilarious. I loved Jon Lovitz and all the other voice actors. Jay Sherman is such a comically brilliant character. As a film buff, I thought the movie parodies in the show "Coming Attractions" were amazing. I also liked the shows send up on the entertainment industry and films and actors in general I think Al Jean and Mike Reiss did an excellent job with this series. Sadly, most Simpsons personnel don't get as lucky with their own projects, even Groening had problems keeping Futurama on the air, which I also loved. I still can't believe it only lasted two seasons. I think it would be awesome if someday they would come out with more episodes or even a feature film.
