    If your a fan of Larry David, i'm sure you will find this comedy enough appealing. The cast alone is worth the watch and the material is usually funny. Full Review »

    Childish story, Flat direction, boring acting, but somewhere between the emptiness and the Larry Davids socio schizophrenia he is introducing, formalized enjoyment can jump through the fireplace Full Review »

    I love "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and really enjoy Larry David's unique, neurotic humor and since it looks like "Curb" is dead and we'll see no more of it, we get the next best thing: "Clear History."

    The HBO movie is definitely hilarious but it does feel overly familiar as it looks like an extended episode of "Curb." Also, a lot of the really great cast is never used to their potential and often feel like background characters--for example, Danny McBride goes viciously underutilized.

    Overall, while the film has some issues in the fact it feels like the same thing we've seen over and over again, the movie is still pretty funny and can easily satisfy the hole left behind from "Curb."
