Jeff Goldblum's willingness to take a chance on something different and the way he sticks to it is the real charm of 'Pittsburgh.'
Singularly unique... one of the more enjoyable motion pictures I've come across in recent months
Audience Reviews for Pittsburgh
I'm a fan of Goldblum and really enjoyed Pittsburgh as it displays his persona taking on ridiculousness. This could have been a terrible vanity project but wound up having a quirky heart and soul.
"Curb Your Enthusiasm" with Jeff Goldblum and a piano instead of a tuba. Which ends up being great fun. Moby steals every scene he's in.
This is quite a funny mockumentary reminding me why I used to enjoy seeing the name Jeff Goldblum on a cast list. Here he plays himself, Jeff Goldblum, with the sudden desire to forgo his film career (much to his agent's exasperation) and star in a local theater production of The Music Man back in his hometown of Pittsburgh. Problem is, he only realizes he can't really sing and can't really dance until he has already shmoozed his way into the lead role to the chagrin of some in the theater company. Meanwhile, his friend Ed Begley Jr. gets him involved in a potentially financially ruinous solar energy scam, and another friend Illeana Douglas begins dating Moby who, as Jeff discovers, has some peculiar fetishes. One of those rewarding discoveries that reaffirms why I keep giving little unknown films a chance.
