Canned Laughter (1979 TV Short)
User ReviewsReview this title
I just watched it again, now. (March 2010)
I did laugh at the "Bean-like" character, at first, but the comedy in the restaurant scene looks pretty thin, now.
Perhaps we have seen Rowan Atkinson do much better things, since, and this seems primitive in comparison.
I think that if Rowan Atkinson re-made this, now, the comedy would be much funnier and sharper.
(I don't think I have changed - I'm still a big fan of his - but this now looks like a weak cup of tea compared to his more clever humor that came later.)
