Albert Brooks directs himself, Kathryn Harrold and Bruno Kirby in this romantic comedy about a movie editor who dumps a woman and then deals with the fallout.
The finest, funniest Brooks film I’ve seen – this is full of wit and self-loathing. A long weekend of bad behaviour from a needy man. It is quite, quite recognisable. Cinematically playful and unpredictably sly, this is a forgotten classic. Fans of Woody Allen and Nora Ephron will find a more self-aware, hipper, misanthropic alternative to their best works. Or if you are looking for a more emotionally intelligent Curb Your Enthusiasm, then it hits that sweet spot too.
