Whatever Works Reviews
Larry David is great as this grumpy old git and has hilarious dialogue throughout.. however the rest of the cast are not written to be as strong against him and we get a very one sided repetitive affair with a good cast and the sometimes usual digs by woody at the slower kind of southern folk but not much else.. sadly we can see why this one has a frowned upon reputation but this is mostly due to the lackluster writing for the supporting characters
I?m a big fan of Larry David. This movie really made me disappointed in him. Why would he take this role in a creepy movie from a known pedophile like Allen? Didn?t he realize how offensive the premise of this movie is? Is David just another man who dreams of some 21 year old kid wanting him?
ClichÃ (C)d story line, 2D character's and tedious beyond human ability to watch without losing the will to live, perhaps Larry David's character had watched one too many Allen films, hence his suicidal mindset.
