    Like "The Aristocrats," Looking succeeds smashingly both as a comedy and as a savvy deconstruction of comedy.
  2. A funny and appropriately skewed comedy.
  3. The movie doesn't so much end as reach a stopping point and limp hurriedly off-screen, like a bad stand-up chased out by boo birds. But God, is it funny.
  4. 50
    Strange that a movie about comedy is so lacking in this quality.
  5. 50
    Almost despite itself, this is a deeply pessimistic movie.
  6. 25
    This is by far the most embarrassing of his seven movies.

    I think there was something funny in this movie. I definitely remember **** at one point ... what was it??

    Sorry ... I can seem to recall the
    99.99% which wasn't in the slightest bit funny ... the parts which were almost embarrassing to the point of pain to view ... the parts which made me disgusted with my DVD purchase ... the parts which had me scanning the cover just to double-check that it actually said 'comedy' on there ... yes ... those parts i can recall. But the funny bit. The joke. I seem to have forgotten it. Shall i watch it again so i can find it?? Oh, no, that's right. I hacked the DVD into 1,000 pieces, mixed it with dog-dirt and fed it to the local pigs. Expand
