Trivia

Larry does his impression of Cary Grant when he says the doll's name "Judy, Judy, Judy!". While Grant never actually says that in a movie, Stanley Donen, who directed him in Charade (1963), has stated that for the fun of it, he had Grant filmed saying it. Donen admitted that since then he had lost that footage. See more »

Classic "Curb"
6 January 2008 | by DVD_ConnoisseurSee all my reviews

"The Doll" is an extremely entertaining and well scripted episode of the second series, directed by "Curb" regular Robert B. Weide. With Larry causing mayhem in the most cringe-worthy fashion, this mid-season episode deserved to be the season finale.

There's more than a little of Larry David in me and I can't help but empathise with his plight in some episodes. In "The Doll", his inability to see the possible consequences of his actions is both amusing and painful (in a good way).

The cast are as excellent as ever and they make even the most far-fetched scenes seem believable. The "fly on the wall" experience of watching "Curb" is comedy heaven.

10 out of 10. Without a doubt, "Curb" is the best comedy show in production today. Long may it continue.
