Curb Your Enthusiasm: The Complete Fourth Season (DVD)
Larry David lives a charmed life-an understanding wife, famous friends, a supportive manager and an angelic singing voice so what's his problem? See Larry buy medical marijuana, take a hooker to a baseball game, steal a golf club from a corpse, ruin Ben Stiller's birthday part, attempt to cash in on his tenth anniversary present with Gina Gershon and trip the light fantastic in The Producers with Mel Brooks and David Schwimmer.]]>
He never learns. In the fourth season of his award-winning HBO comedy series, the quasi-fictional character of Larry David continues to say--and do--whatever he wants whenever he wants. In the first episode alone ("Mel's Offer"), in which Mel Brooks offers him the role of Max Bialystock in The Producers, David offends a doctor, a lesbian couple, a wheelchair user, and Ben Stiller (by not shaking his hand after he sneezes). Then, in the second ("Ben's Birthday Party"), he offends a blind man--by telling him his girlfriend's not as hot as she claims--and pokes Stiller in the eye with a skewer while attempting to show agent Jeff Greene (Jeff Garlin) his new golf move.
Larry continues to offend Stiller until he drops out of The Producers and, in the fifth episode ("The 5 Wood"), David Schwimmer (Friends) steps in. The following episode ("The Car Pool Lane"), in which David attends a Dodgers game--with a prostitute, so he can use the carpool lane--made history when it set an innocent man free. Unused footage from the show, entered into evidence by the defense attorney, confirmed his client's alibi that he couldn't have committed a murder because he was at the game (alas, the Braves still trounced the Dodgers). Other guests include Ted Danson ("The Weatherman"), Russell Means ("Wandering Bear"), and Gina Gershon ("The Survivor") as a Hasidic hottie. In addition, the hour-long season finale ("Opening Night") boasts a bevy of stars, including Davids old colleague Jerry Seinfeld, Nathan Lane (Broadway's original Bialystock), and fellow Tony Award winner Anne Bancroft (The Miracle Worker). As they've done since the early days, Cheryl Hines (Cheryl David), Susie Essman (Susie Greene), and Richard Lewis and Wanda Sykes (as themselves) do what they can to keep one-man demolition derby David in check. --Kathleen C.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Luckily I was a fool for taking note of the reviews contained here. It's true that the first four episodes rely on self-parody, with the jokes never really coming into their promised fruition. But halfway through it picks up, offering some of the funniest moments of the show (particularly in the Car Pool Lane). I found the story arc to be the best yet, though I will say that they are beginning to rely on continuity too much; many jokes span two episodes. Still, who can complain about strong series continuity?
Despite his self parody in the first eps, Larry is on top form for most of the season, managing to make all the crazy happenings seem somewhat believable. He even pulls off the Producers with style. Ben Stiller is fun to see on screen for maybe 5 minutes, but becomes grating to watch after a while. Fortunately, By halfway through the season, Ben is out and David Schwimmer is in, pulling off hating Larry better than possibly anyone else in the series' history. The levels of hate he brings, wow. As for the rest of the cast regulars... they actually seem a bit subdued this year (Jeff had a stroke at the end of season 3 so I can understand that, but the taming of his wife's temper doesn't really make sense). Not much Lewis here, but the addition of Larry's dad pays off.
Definitely one of the better seasons (I personally think 1 is the best and 3 is the worst)... let's just hope season 5 comes out on DVD in the next few years.
all the time...The casting is excellent and the way he gets into and out of his
messes is such a talent of it's own..I've watched it several times over.. I like
to watch it before bedtime so that it removes all the drama that's going on in
the world today. Great Show....
The writing and acting are just about flawless as comedies go, and the cast is nothing short of brilliant.
Or, it's an exercise in ego and as overbearingly soulless as "Seinfeld" (which was written by this series' star and creator, Larry David), and the characters should be taken out in the rain and shot for their lack of humanity and interest in anyone's satisfaction but their own.
You decide :)
