Editorial Reviews

Starring HBO favorite Larry David, Clear History is a new HBO Films presentation, also starring Jon Hamm, Bill Hader, Philip Baker Hall, Kate Hudson, Michael Keaton, Danny McBride, Eva Mendes, Amy Ryan, and J.B. Smoove. The comedy follows Nathan Flomm (David), a marketing executive at a start-up electric car company, who, after a petty argument with his boss, gives up his 10 percent of the shares. The company then goes on to make billions of dollars, leaving Nathan publicly humiliated and his life destroyed. Ten years later, he's changed his name and moved to a small island off the coast of Massachusetts. All is well - until something from his past threatens the new life he's made for himself. Directed by Greg Mottola, Clear History is written by Larry David, Alec Berg, David Mandel, and Jeff Schaffer, and executive produced by Greg Mottola, Bradley Thomas, Alec Berg, David Mandel, and Jeff Schaffer.

When I heard that Larry David from "Curb Your Enthusiasm" was headlining the HBO production "Clear History," I was interested to see if he could expand his acting chops and develop a character not based on himself. The furthest he has ever ventured away from playing Larry David (not counting joke cameos such as The Three Stooges nun) was Woody Allen's "Whatever Works," but that really wasn't much of a stretch either. Any thoughts about a transformative performance were quickly dispelled in the first few minutes of this broad comedy. Sharing a screenplay credit, Larry David has once again written for his go-to character of Larry David. If you like this character, and I do, there are quite a few laughs to be had in this flight of fancy. If it's not your thing, however, I'd definitely take a pass. "Clear History," though, does wisely populate the cast with a number of game actors that really sell the piece from Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Bill Hader, Kate Hudson, Amy Ryan, Eva Mendes, Danny McBride, Phillip Baker Hall and "Enthusiasm" alum J.B. Smoove. Each is great, really, but this still rests on David's shoulders.

As "Clear History" opens ten years in the past, we meet David as the unorthodox creative type in a start-up company about to unleash an electronic automobile. David can't get past the proposed name for the new car and in a fit of apoplexy decides to leave the company selling his shares back to owner Hamm. Of course, the car is a huge success and David becomes an American whipping boy and national punchline as the man who forfeited a billion dollar windfall. Having to stat life anew, we fast forward to present day and a tranquil life in Martha's Vineyard. Under an assumed identity, David is scraping by as a personal assistant but is surrounded by love and happiness.

"You can't name a car Howard!" Nathan (David) is an ad executive who is the best at what he does. After getting into a fight over what to name a new model of car with his boss Will (Hamm) he quits. When the car hits big and makes everyone involved with it very very rich Nathan moves and changes his name. Ten years later, he is content and happy with his new life in Martha's Vinyard. When Will moves to the Vinyard Nathan begins to think of ways to get him to leave. His best idea is to blow up his house. First and foremost this movie is hilarious. But like I have said before I have a specific style of humor that I love. The humor in this one is very Seinfeld like, which makes sense since 4 of the 4 writers wrote for Seinfeld. There are long tirades and running jokes about which car should back up on a one lane road, the placement of electrical outlets and the band Chicago. I laughed a lot throughout. Overall, if you like Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm you will love this movie. I highly recommend this. I give it an A.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3 1/2 stars for a funny and familiar Larry David August 22, 2013
Format:DVD
Note: This is a review based on a high definition viewing from HBO. There might be spoilers.

Nathan Flomm (Larry David) is a long haired and bearded marketing executive who works for Will Haney (John Hamm) the owner/inventor of a new electric car. Nathan was an early investor and owns 10% of the stock. When Will decides to name the car the "Howard," Nathan rebels. Will offers to buy back Nathan's 10%. The Howard becomes a huge success, although this car is so ugly it makes the Pontiac Aztec look like a Ferrari.

Nathan, unemployed and unhireable becomes the laughing stock of the country because his hasty decision cost him an estimated 1 billion dollars. He moves across county to Martha's Vineyard near Boston and becomes a clean shaven, bald companion to an elderly spinster. David brings his character from his TV show, "Curb Your Enthusiasm" with him to the role. Now known locally as Rolly, he shoots out constant zingers at his friends and others in the small community. The band "Chicago" is a key plot element and provide much of the film's soundtrack. The much visited joke has to do with whether or not Larry's former girlfriend Wendy (Amy Ryan) had performed fellatio on various members of the band when they appeared there 20 years earlier.

When Rolly's former business enemy, Will moves to the neighborhood with his hot wife, Rhonda (Kate Hudson), he's worried that he will be recognized. His salvation comes when he learns the townsfolk are up in arms over Will's building of a huge mansion which doesn't fit the look of the quaint town. Perhaps the best character in the film is Joe Stumpo (hilarious Michael Keaton), a usually drunk local who is constantly making noise about the big house being built.

4.0 out of 5 stars LIKE YOU NEVER MADE A MISTAKE December 2, 2013
Format:DVD
Nathan (Larry David) works for Electron Motors, an up and coming electric car company. When the owner (Bill Hader) decides to name the car "Howard" Nathan objects and quits the company. When the "Howard" becomes the next greatest innovation, Nathan become the brunt of national humor. Nathan changes his name to go live a quiet life on Martha's Vineyard...until his former boss decides to live there too.

The comedy was light and the Chicago music was heavy. I enjoyed some of the initial humor, but as the film went on some of the fresh humor became stale as they ran out of new ways to make fun of Nathan's neat compulsion. Howard inadvertently becomes a nemesis to Jaspar (J.B. Smoove) a bit that I liked. The film was able to tie together bits and pieces, i.e. circle around, something I expect in good writing. The problem was that the jokes were not that good and the sexual humor wasn't that funny.

Works as a rental.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity. Sex talk.
