Storyline

A PR specialist refuses to market a car called a "Howard" - a colossal error that loses him a billion dollars and makes him a national joke. He loses his hair, shaves his beard, takes a new name, and moves to Martha's Vineyard. Jump ten years: "Rolly" is a popular local whose sangfroid evaporates when the Howard's inventor moves to the island. Rolly, his old self unrecognizable, hatches a plan to rid the island of his nemesis; he also decides to woo the billionaire's wife. Fellatio, a former girlfriend, a woman who's lost weight, her boyfriend, the band Chicago, a menacing Chechen, a bus load of ill children, and a pair of ne'er-do-wells with experience with explosives figure in the story.

Trivia

In the same way that the protagonist's name "Rolly" sounds like "Larry" in reverse, the plot also takes of on a real-life angle from Larry David's life. In 2007, his wife Laurie Lennard filed for divorce, after it was revealed she had an affair with a young contractor working on the couple's estate in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, the setting for this movie.

Goodish comedy
2 December 2019 | by grantssSee all my reviews

Goodish comedy. Helps if you like Larry David (as I do). Not great though: uneven and sometimes just silly. However, there are enough hysterical moments and typical Seinfeld/David-isms to keep it going.
