A good idea, but somehow unfocused. Crystal can't make up his mind if he wants you to love or hate his Buddy Young Jr.

Billy Crystall's feature directorial debut is a misfire: As an actor, he's too likable to play the egotistical comedian who torments everyone around him for the sake of his career.

It's not wholly successful, but one can respect Crystal's intentions.
