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!

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!

It's Glick! Nothing else to be said. The movie is a little more racy than the tv show but still funny. It would help to know who Director David Lynch is to get the humorous darker side of this film. Get it for more Glick fix!

This "filim" was made in the same vein as other comedies such as Airplane!, The Pink Panther, and This is Spinal Tap. It's not gross-out or full of actors who are trying too hard to be funny. The funny just comes naturally here.

Make sure you watch through to the very end - there are great cameo appearances by tons of stars, and poor, poor Kurt Russell - I couldn't stop laughing myself!

Watch and enjoy - you'll be glad you did!

I absolutely LOVE Martin Short's portrayal of the hilariously shallow Jiminy Glick. e.g. his interviews on Comedy Central are hilarious! I just wish this story had not contain so much sexual innuendo and/or crudeness. So unnecessary for such a talented comedian as Martin Short.

What a weird freaking movie this is! It's not exactly what I'd call GOOD, but it sure is funny as hell, and has some of the most memorable moments in any movie I've seen...Jiminy Glick is one of Martin Short's best characters, I'd say, and this movie is all about him, so..if you like Martin Short, just see it.

I didn't see this movie when it came out; it seemed dumb, but it's actually really great! It's funny on so many levels: it's smart and satirical and slapstick and just plain entertaining.
Watching Martin Short play David Lynch is so good I cried!
