Brooks, who wrote the script with Monica Johnson, is a highly original comedic spirit.

Too often, things are simply too painfully accurate to be particularly funny. Still, it's hard to fault Brooks' resolutely adult intelligence, and Lost in America - almost in spite of itself, really - is easily his most consistently amusing work to date.

Lost in America is being called a yuppie comedy, but it's really about the much more universal subjects of greed, hedonism and panic. What makes it so funny is how much we can identify with it.

With co-writer Monica Johnson, his collaborator on Real Life and Modern Romance, Brooks has scripted the perfect outing for his gifts.

Packed to the gills with Albert Brooks' signature dialog, and played to the hilt by both leads, Lost in America has a long set-up. But it's a testament to Brook's clever characterization.

Brooks explodes the Kerouac fantasy by depicting two of the most uptight, urban people in the world trying to live it out.

It's an endlessly funny and often uncomfortable piece of work, featuring some of the sharpest, deftest writing Brooks and frequent collaborator Monica Johnson ever crafted.

The supplements are a little on the sparse side, but Criterion's restoration of Lost in America is important for rightfully contextualizing the film as an American masterpiece.

Lost in America is one of the funniest films from one of our greatest cinematic comedians.

Amusing satire on yuppies having a mid-life crisis.
May 8, 2009
It is, I think, Brooks' masterpiece -- nothing inessential, one great scene after another, just flat-out perfect. Stanley Kubrick was an Albert Brooks fan for a reason.

A complete joy from start to finish! See it before you take to the wide-open road!

This sharply observed satire about disillusioned yuppies is Brooks' chef d'oeuvre and first commercial success, a film with an hero that's less obnoxious than the usual and a wonderful partner too, played by Julie Hagerty
