Storyline

"La La Wood" follows the legacy of Jiminy Glick, first introduced on "The Martin Short Show," who went on to get (non)-critical acclaim for his talk show "Primetime Glick," where Mr. Glick interviewed countless celebrities (which usually ended in verbally--sometimes physically--insulting/assaulting them). Now comes "La La Wood"--Jiminy Glick's home. This is his story (sort of). Written by John Ulmer

The ENTIRE film is OK
4 November 2007 | by imdb-19602See all my reviews

First of all, love the reviewer who watched half an hour and then felt it was valid to write how horrible the movie is. Next time watch the whole movie before you review it, I think that's the least someone should expect and would advise anyone to ignore any reviews like that.

That being said, this is no comic masterpiece, but if you are a fan of the TV show it should be entertaining for you. These characters are so goofy that its not for everyone. I probably most appreciated all of the improv by the myriad of stars making cameos, reminds me of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Its a non-painful way to kill 90 minutes. It also reminds me of Napolean Dynamite in that it is actually funnier the second time through.
