News & Interviews for Jiminy Glick in Lalawood
Critic Reviews for Jiminy Glick in Lalawood
Wedding a fairly complex mystery with show-biz satire against the real-life festival backdrop requires more structure and maybe more scripted scenes.
What Short does not deserve -- and neither do we -- is a feature-length movie about Jiminy.
Within 40 minutes, though, you may realize you've had about as much fun as you're going to -- and that the movie is barely halfway done.
Good news, fans of Martin Short's porky celebrity interviewer, Jiminy Glick: There's a big-screen version of the short-lived Comedy Central series, and both of you will enjoy it.
Audience Reviews for Jiminy Glick in Lalawood
While I find this Martin Short character somewhat ammusing in small doses...I wasn't sure how he'd hold up through an entire film. But being a HUGE Jan Hooks fan and having heard about all of the David Lynch refrences and parodies involved I was intrigued enough to DVR it.
There are several moments of true hilarity sprinkled throughout. Most of the really ammusing stuff (for me) usually involved either Jan Hooks or the David Lynch refrences. There are also several ammusing celebrity interviews and a few good "jabs" at Hollywood, which (as a film fan) you can't help but appreciate. But, for the most part this was mostly just silly, sophomoric, self-indulgent, fluff.
Which is not an entirely bad thing (every now and again), provided you go into it knowing/expecting as much.
I like the Jiminy Glick character created by Martin Short. The skit becomes tired when stretched to movie length. It was funny how he was annoying all the celebrities with his overbearing personality. Good makeup effects on Martin Short. It was interesting how it was told in Hollywood expose style.
This character does much better in 5 minute increments as opposed to a whole show - let alone a full-length movie! Martin Short is funny, but this is something that I have a short attention span for.
