"And to America.... look out... here we come" - David Howard,
The American Dream is canceled.
Albert Brooks has a wonderful and distinctive voice. He makes movies that are just different than other sorts of films and I appreciate that about him. For me, Lost in America is not his best work but there are moments of brilliance that are hard to deny. I love watching Brooks characters try to convince people (bosses, cops, casino owners, etc) to do things he wants because there is this awkwardness that is hard to create in movies that he completely nails. Julie Hagerty really works will with him and the story as a whole is pretty fun I think I just wanted a little more edge to the story, especially the ending.
Not his best, but worth a watch for sure.
P.S. Ogre from Revenge of the Nerds.... I see you!
