As I continue my foray into movies that were mis-marketed, I of course needed to mention Observe & Report, the “other” mall cop movie. Seth Rogen does some of his best acting in a movie that is more dark than funny. Then, I had to hate on his new film The Guilt Trip. That led me to talking about the best neurotic Jewish filmmaker who makes movies about neurotic Jews. No DUM DUM NOT WOODY ALLEN. I’m talking about Albert Brooks and the simple but elegant comedy Mother.
Next time I’ll be back with longer episodes with guests.
