Trivia

John Amos got his big break thanks to Bea Arthur: had it not been for her CBS series "Maude", "Good Times" would have never seen the light of day. (Amos also has a connection to another cast member, Robert Costanzo: they both appeared in Die Hard 2.) See more »

No gem, just plain nice.
18 July 2000 | by Cookie24See all my reviews

See this movie directed by and starring Jason Alexander. It's not a one-of-a-kind movie, it's not an 'American Beauty' and it's not unforgettable. Heck, it's a one-star movie! It's got a good story idea, but the movie would've been a lot better if they had an excellent script, because some parts are just way out there. See it for Jason Alexander and Jay Mohr. Jay was downright hilarious. Jason was good at acting un-George-like.

The main problem was about 15 minutes in, I wanted to shoot the performers of the irritating background music. 'Okay, we get the point already! You're in a capella jazz group, now shut it!'

And, ladies, by the end of the movie, I'm sure you'll be thinking that Jason IS the most adorable guy on the planet, too, inside and out. Too bad he's married. (His wife's in the movie as the cop about three minutes from the end of the movie.)
