Jon Benjamin (Archer), Kathy Griffin (Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D List), Laura Kightlinger (The Minor Accomplishments of Jackie Woodman), David Waterman, Andy Kindler (Everybody Loves Raymond) and more star in Who's The Caboose, the highly worshipped alternative-comedy prequel to the highly worshipped miniseries sequel, Pilot Season.

When a film crew making a documentary on a rare fatal disease among the homeless stops for a drink at an underground comedy club, it doesn't take long before they decide to turn the attention of their film to the hot and funny stand-up comedian Susan (Sarah Silverman) who is leaving New York and heading to L.A. to land a part in a TV show, unbeknownst to her performance artist boyfriend, Max (Sam Seder). Desperate not to lose Susan, Max chases after her in hopes of bringing her back to the more pure New York scene. As Susan suffers the indignities and compromises her agent (Andy Dick) hopes will make her a star, fate deals Max a winning hand in the form of entertainment lawyer Ken Fold (H. Jon Benjamin). Suddenly Max is the toast of Hollywood and everyone in town wants him. But all he wants is Susan.

Really a who's who of comedy now by being a who's who of indy comedy then.
Juan Vasquez
I mean. really, I don't think they could have picked a more ridiculous title (and maybe that's the point) but I'm afraid it might keep people away.
K. Harris
I love this movie so much, I actually bought the DVD, which I never do, because it's one of the few movies I watch over and over.

Who's the Caboose is a rare look back at a cast of truly gifted comedians early in their careers. The characters and comedy stand the test of time.

David Earl Waterman (Wotterman in the film) is a genius.

Format: DVD
One of the most inspired comic miniseries that no one has ever seen, "The Pilot Season" was a terrifically fresh skewering of the television industry. Initially airing on TRIO (there's the problem right there, what's TRIO?), this show was pre-dated by the dubiously titled "Who's the Caboose?" A sly mockumentary from 1997, I was so excited to get my hands on this new DVD release. A look at two New York comedians (Sarah Silverman and Sam Seder) who travel to Los Angeles in an attempt to be hired for a network show, this movie has all the elements to be a cult hit. It's smart and astute about the industry and I was wholeheartedly invested in its ridiculousness. Unfortunately, the easy momentum of the film's first half loses its way and the film, although only 90 minutes, becomes over-repetitive on its way to the conclusion. But even if the film drags a bit, I think you still might want to take a look.

For nostalgia alone, "Who's the Caboose?" is a terrific find. In addition to Silverman and Seder, the movie boasts bit parts and supporting roles populated by names such as David Cross, Andy Dick, Laura Kightlinger, Kathy Griffin, Andy Kindler and H. Jon Benjamin. It's a veritable treasure trove of comic talent--even if not everyone has much to do. Silverman, as an aggressive ingenue, seeks success at any cost while her mild mannered boyfriend Seder becomes a more unexpected Hollywood discovery. Both find their ups and downs in the ruthless entertainment world, but it may not be a land where their romance can survive. Filmed by a fictional documentary crew, the film has the confessional style of modern reality TV and the unsuspecting videographers often become part of the inherent drama.

I found it very enjoyable. It had the feel of a "Best in Show", a reality spoof with a bunch of comedians, crazy agents and Hollywood types, some sort of quirky Jewish cliques, people getting drunk. A lot of funny moments, the aggressive agent who shakes Sam's hand while he is trying to take a piss, the woman who is in tears because of Sara Silverman's arm hair. I would have liked to see more pot references throughout. I would have made it more realistic. The aggressive agent should have been snorting coke, but why split hairs, it is worth the watch, and streaming for free on Netflix right now!

This movie isn't bad, but unless you're a comedy nerd, you'll probably be disappointed. It was great to see all the comics involved, and the plot was kinda cool, but there just weren't a lot of laughs. I rented it, and it was worth the $4, but I don't think I need to add it to the collection.

Format: DVD
A comparatively weak entry in the mockumentary category, 'Who's the Caboose?' tries to carry the baton passed by Christopher Guest and company with a behind-the-scenes skewering of the stand-up-comic/sitcom world for the 'Whatever' generation. The project's glib humor and sense of dispassionate self-satisfaction (evident in scenes both written and ad libbed) date it unmistakably to the mid-late '90s, the Seinfeld era, when passive-absurdist observational comedy was king, which wouldn't necessarily be a problem if it could come up with wittier gags or more interesting characters (most of the cast, while likeable enough, lack the chops to manage the heavy workload of improvisation demanded of them). Instead the whole affair just feels like a patchwork of familiar, semi-amusing notions, its storyline adrift beyond the concept stage, its lack of focus on a satiric target increasingly obvious as the cardboard plot limps along (is it really a sendup of the Tinseltown dream, or an attempt to revisit 'Swingers' documentary-style?). Though it features comedians it isn't about stand-up; though it stars Sarah Silverman it isn't really about her either, or about L.A., vapid Hollywood players or the pursuit of fleeting success in a town without pity. It wants to be about all these things-- an ambitious order-- and falls short in most respects. 2 stars.
