Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Amusing satire on yuppies having a mid-life crisis.

It is, I think, Brooks' masterpiece -- nothing inessential, one great scene after another, just flat-out perfect. Stanley Kubrick was an Albert Brooks fan for a reason.

A complete joy from start to finish! See it before you take to the wide-open road!

This sharply observed satire about disillusioned yuppies is Brooks' chef d'oeuvre and first commercial success, a film with an hero that's less obnoxious than the usual and a wonderful partner too, played by Julie Hagerty

Depends on your Albert Brooks' tolerance. Mine is low.

A movie whose parts are greater than its whole. There are some great moments in this film, but the overall structure is jarring, especially the way it just suddenly ends.

Spirituality and Practice

In this well-realized and very relevant movie, Brooks manages to make us ponder the quiet desperation of our working lives and the sharp edges of our fantasies.

So good throughout that the film easily had the potential to be great.
