Goofs

Early on, after Larry and Jeff exit the initial HBO meeting and are walking to the elevator, you can clearly see Larry reach for the elevator button, hesitate, then move his finger up a couple inches and press it into empty metal above the button. This was presumably done to prevent the elevator doors from opening during filming of the scene. See more »

The title of the movie prevents me from expressing myself properly
20 October 2000 | by badtom-2See all my reviews

Larry David is a master at comic awkwardness. He is a decent actor too even if he is playing a fictionalized, caricature of himself. New, real-life situations are blown out of proportion in Seinfeld style, and while it would be impossible to recreate that show, this new material from Larry David is quite welcome. I am very happy that it has now become a series on HBO.
