What to know

critics consensus

Its semi-improvised structure finds Larry David squarely in his wheelhouse, but with few laughs and a muddled message, it doesn't live up to his usual standards. Read critic reviews

  • The high points - especially a brilliantly worked running gag about soft-rockers Chicago - are spread too thinly, and David's improvised comedy of embarrassment is now very familiar.

  • The revenge plot brings the characters together...and doesn't come together as satisfyingly as your average "Curb" episode... [but] the funny parts of "Clear History" are good enough to act as an acceptable 100-minute substitute.

  • For those of us who agree with Mel Brooks that "there's something about this middle-aged bald guy that's thrilling," his new film is a high-spirited treat - and a hint at the possibilities that await him if and when he finally calls it a day on 'Curb.'

  • It will take only a few minutes of Clear History... not only to "forgive" David for repeating himself but to thank him for reminding us why we miss Curb Your Enthusiasm and hope it comes back soon.

    August 14, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • [It] has a nice, confident and well-edited breeze to it (including a lot of jokes about the band Chicago), with a fun cast that includes standout riffs from Michael Keaton, Danny McBride and Eva Mendes.

  • A wonderfully diverting film with Mr. David at his abrasive best.
