A catchy but irrelevant title is the first of many problems with Excuse Me for Living, which throws together a lot of superficially flashy elements that never gel in any organic way.

Like Lloyd, who plays the clinic's leading loon, "Excuse Me" is much more about making fun than making sense.

Is it a comedy if the audience laughs or is it a comedy if laughs were intended, irrespective of whether they're generated? "Excuse Me for Living" qualifies under the second definition.

Vaguely misogynistic and defiantly paternalistic, the movie fails at nearly everything - comic tone, sex gags, charm, logic, direction of actors ...

A lumbering mess in which [Klass] has somehow trapped several recognizable actors.

Atrocious dreck that feels sitcomish, only without the polish or panache.

No strand of Excuse Me for Living's frantic, unfunny, and pseudo-thoughtful narrative is well conceived.
