Editorial Reviews

Ruthless. Shameless. Clueless! Celebrity interviewer Jiminy Glick (Martin Short) tackles the big screen with his first feature film: a wildly irreverent, laugh-till-it-hurts movie experience that skewers Hollywood with "potent comic accuracy" and features "more celebs than you can shake a microphone at" (Entertainment News)! Hungry for an A-list interview that could launch him into the gossip-page stratosphere, the small-time journalist with big aspirations and an even bigger appetite drags his wife and kids across the country to the star-studded Toronto Film Festival. But in between the nonstop parties and all-you-can-eat buffets, Glick soon finds himself in the middle of an outrageously scandalous mystery that becomes the celebrity scoop of the decade!

Customer Reviews

This movie is very funny and entertaining.
Davis
Written in old-fashioned Hollywood style, it is a strong storyline and cast of characters.

This movie features a lot of vulgar material and I think that was a big mistake.

I've caught snippets of Jiminy Glick on Comedy Central, but I have never really sat down and watched the show for any length of time. Still, this is Martin Short we're talking about, so I was fairly confident that Jiminy Glick in La La Wood would prove funny and entertaining - and it did. The film's a little uneven as a whole, but it has several laugh out loud moments, and it maintains a decent level of humor from start to finish.

Martin Short created Jiminy Glick for his long-gone talk show, but Jiminy is best known for his Primetime Glick interview show on Comedy Central. Let's say he has a unique interviewing style and let it go at that. As the film opens, he's the primary entertainment critic in Butte, Montana - but he is all excited about his chance to attend the Toronto Film Festival and hobnob with stars that don't have second jobs in department stores. It's a family affair as his wife Dixie (Jan Hooks) and twin boys Matthew and Modine arrive to live it up and schmooze with the stars. Unfortunately, no one knows who Jiminy Glick is - but all that changes after he snags an interview with the incredibly reclusive Ben DiCarlo (Corey Pearson) who is there to showcase his new film Growing Up Gandhi. Suddenly, Glick's the main attraction at the film festival and he lines up some pretty big names for one-on-one talk sessions, including Steve Martin and Kurt Russell. There's only one problem - he fears he may have murdered a prominent actress while he was in an alcoholic haze.

This is a really funny movie. Glick isn't my favorite Martin Short character of all time, but he's definitely one of Short's funniest creations. Just about everything he says and does is funny.

I was so looking forward to this. I love Martin Short and I love Jiminy. But this was almost torturous to watch. It had it's good moments, but it had an equal amount of bad moments too. Dixie was not how I had imagined her and neither were the boys. The interviews were about the only highlights. I loved the Kurt Russell interview. That was great (and just before the credits roll, there are some outtakes where Kurt is doubled up in laughter - that was funny). I'm sorry if you don't agree with this review but I'm only being honest and I am a true Martin Short fan. If I had a choice, I'd just rent this instead of purchasing it.

I first caught "Primetime with Jiminy Glick" on Comedy Central about a year or so back. It took me a few episodes to catch on, but Martin Short is amazing as this character. I suggest you start with "Primetime", but once you watch it, you'll love this movie. Written in old-fashioned Hollywood style, it is a strong storyline and cast of characters. Like most movies of its type, it doesnt take itself too seriously and is filled with hilarious laughs all the way to the end. It follows Jiminy's rise to fame through the Toronto film festival and a string of unbelievable events.

I have not seen a comedy this good in a long time!

This movie is presently available at a very cheap price. Which is wonderful, since it was a very cheap movie. The whole thing was filmed in about three weeks. Roughly half of the dialogue was improvised in front of the camera. Many of the crewmembers were monkeys. The whole thing is just one big lark. You can't really review a movie like this - it would be like reviewing a tub of popcorn.

I laughed a lot. I grinned a lot. I smiled a lot. I ordered a pizza. The script (such as it was) doesn't add up to a hill of beans. Well, maybe a very small hill of lima beans. But it doesn't matter. Martin Short as Jiminy Glick is a riot. The Glick character is a classic, right up there with Inspector Clouseau or George H.W. Bush. Jiminy Glick should be appearing in a string of comedy laughfests, each one a little less amusing than the one before. That should have been his illustrious Hollywood fate. Instead, this movie may be the last time we shall ever be able to enjoy him. I really hate that.

Cheap laughs. That's what this movie is all about.

I was sort of expecting this movie to be unfunny and dull after reading the reviews on amazon. First off I think the made up character Jiminy Glick is hilarious. In this movie he was not the only funny character. His wife, kids, and the rude indian guy were also very hilarious. Martin Short's blunt characterization of David Lynch is very amusing and realistic. The interviews were probably the weakest parts of the movie. Some were good while some were lame.

This is a comedy spoof of David Lynch movies. So if you know David Lynch movies you can then be prepared for this comedy to be a bit on the bizarre side.

The one-liners are fast and furious. I had to watch this movie a second time just to get all the jokes.

This movie is goofy, fun and histrionic! It is on par with any movie done by the SNL crew or even Jim Carrey.

Never have I seen an impersonation of the great David Lynch so insightly and profoundly perfect. This movie is hilarious if you know how to laugh at the whole concept of the idiotic paparazzi obsessed culture we live in. Martin Short is a genius clown master/impersonator of more than four decades. Not to mention a truly huge heart of a guy who deserves all of the laughs he has dragged out of us all. A "Tender Fella'".
