The Ambulance Reviews
Here is a short definition:
Cartoonist Eric Roberts stumbles onto what may be a weird abduction conspiracy when dream gal Janine Turner is whisked away by a mysterious ambulance and never shows up at any of the local hospitals.
Eric Roberts plays professional Marvel comic book artist Joshua Baker, a cocky guy with a mullet made of gold. One day Josh decides to approach a strange woman on a crowded New York sidewalk. After being verbally harassed for about five minutes in Roberts's signature numb-tongue accent, the woman collapses, blaming her diabetes. All too quickly a 1960s style ambulance arrives and whisks her away, leaving Baker with just a first name and the hospital where she's headed, St. Francis. Bein the nice stalker that he is, Roberts shows up at the hospital with a bouquet of roses only to find out that his dream girl ain't there, nor is she at any other hospital in the city. So he sketches up a practically featureless drawing of her and starts roaming the streets until he just so happens to find the woman's roommate, also a diabetic. Within a day of meeting her, this woman, too, is abducted by the same ambulance. This sends Baker into a paranoid frenzy as he obsessively tries to tack down the villainous vehicle with the help a suicidal cop played by none other than James Earl Jones, and a curmudgeonly old journalist played by none other than the legendary Red Buttons. And so begins the mystery of the missing diabetics and one of the strangest plots youâre likely to see.
Practically every single line in this thing is gold and the delivery from everybody is spot on hilarious. Eric Roberts deserves a comeback and Cohen really should start directing his own material again.
"A vehicle of mercy that's really... a murder machine."
This is some seriously good stuff.
its still watchable
