    Jiminy Glick needs definition if he's to work as a character. We have to sense a consistent comic personality, and we don't; Short changes gears and redefines the character whenever he needs a laugh.

    Where else are you going to find an extended riff on the weird, weird world of David Lynch movies, an homage to "The Shining" and flatulence gags in the same place?

    A film this slipshod needs much more star-power than it's able to muster.

    Give 'em a handicap for making a 20-minute man go 90--still, it's not enough.
  5. What Short does not deserve - and neither do we - is a feature-length movie about Jiminy.
  6. Never was this funny a comedian in this horrible a movie.

    Behind the fat suit and countless celebrity cameos is a a unexpected satirical gem. Although the story can run thin at times, Short keepsBehind the fat suit and countless celebrity cameos is a a unexpected satirical gem. Although the story can run thin at times, Short keeps pushing forward, poking fun at all facets of film and celebrity, from David Lynch to substance abuse to lesbian art film, along the way. The movie is certainly a fluff piece, but with a laugh a minute its well worth the time. Full Review »

    The TV show is horrible, and I'm pretty sure it's been cancelled, it's barely on in reruns on Comedy Central. Martin Short has The TV show is horrible, and I'm pretty sure it's been cancelled, it's barely on in reruns on Comedy Central. Martin Short has only had one funny moment in career, ever since then he's just been annoying the crap out of people. So how was this movie financed? No idea. But I do know that it won't even make back the money it cost to make this idiotic film. Full Review »
