Critic Reviews for Stephen Tobolowsky's Birthday Party
Think of Stephen as a softer, rounder, more existentially content Spalding Gray, or the film as a My Dinner with Andre in a pullover sweater and sensible shoes.
...it does seem entirely likely that even those who've never heard of [Tobolowsky] will inevitably find themselves won over by the actor's warm, irresistibly inviting persona.
a brilliant, insightful, and hysterical look at one of our great talents.
According to Brinkmann, Tobolowsky is the greatest storyteller he's ever heard, and after watching this film, that statement is hard to dispute.
As possibly the most recognizable character actor of our generation, Stephen Tobolowsky has given us a gift for his birthday. It's a window into his bizarre, unglamorous life.
surprisingly, shockingly, enthralling
Audience Reviews for Stephen Tobolowsky's Birthday Party
A fine little movie. Tobolowsky is a fine storyteller, but the film has very low budget production values (for instance, never identifies the other people interviewed). But an enjoyable watch.
This cannot be judged as a film with respect to the typical aspects of cinematography, story, characters, etc. But for what it is, which is basically a very lengthy stand-up routine, it is indeed very enjoyable and deserves to be seen and recognized.
This is a pleasant little film that's almost like curling up and listening to your uncle tell stories to you all night. The deleted stories/scenes are almost as long as the film itself and are just as good if not better than the ones left in. Look out for Mena Suvari and Amy Adams as party guests and fellow audience members. Stephen Tobolowsky is a great character actor who weaves a spell with plenty of interesting stories about his life in general and career as an actor. Definitely worth a look if you're even remotely interested.
