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

Literally, one of the worst movies I've ever seen.
4 May 2005 | by wllmfurlongSee all my reviews

Wow. I have to admit that I've never seen Jiminy Glick on television, but I'm aware of the character. Now I wish I'd never seen the film as well. What a mess. I saw a screening with Martin Short in attendance, and his interview afterward was delightful - funny and insightful. Short seems like a truly grounded person, an entertainer through and through, but humble and appreciative. If only the film consisted of two hours of Martin being Martin, or even Martin being Glick, conducting uncomfortable interviews, but no. The film is a sad mishmash of film noir nods and classic movie homages that just don't mesh. Yes, the entire movie was improvised - not a word of it scripted -and it shows. Too often relying on burp and fart jokes, on the "hilarity" of everyone talking at once, on tired gangsta rap spoofs all wrapped around a pointless mystery. Glick's trademark interviews are the few (and by few I mean there are only a couple)funny parts of the flick. If you're a fan of the show, I'd say save your money and wait for those three seasons to hit DVD.
