Editorial Reviews

In this offbeat, hilarious comedy that proves life can always get a little worse, Lisa Kudrow stars as Leslie, a struggling army wife trying to balance work, two out-of-control kids, and a never-ending pile of bills on her own. At her wit's end, she begrudgingly asks her out-of-work brother-in-law, Salman (Scott Prendergast), to move in and lend a hand until her husband comes home. But if dealing with his two rowdy nephews isn't hard enough, Salman also takes a part-time job as the faceless blue corporate mascot for a dying Internet company. Between the boredom, the sweltering heat of his post, and the unique challenges of his "uniform," life for Salman is a constant struggle to maintain his sanity.

By Martin A Hogan HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on September 27, 2008
Format: DVD
There are few movies that can spark your interest, humor and empathy and "Kabluey" is the best one. With a star as unbeatable as Lisa Kudrow as a mother who's husband is shipped off again to Iraq, leaving her with two monstrous sons, she can barely hang on. Enter her brother-in-law loser (Scott Prendergast), also the director, and the film escalates. Salman (loser brother-in-law) shows up to help with the kids, but only proves that he makes matters terribly, terribly worse. Mom (Lisa Kudrow) is struggling with a full time job and the loneliness of no husband. To help, Salman (the fish salmon jokes are endless) gets a demeaning job as a corporate mascot to hand out `office rental space' on a highway to nowhere. From here, the plot moves on to the other community parents, other nasty kids, sexual gossip, affairs and much more than you would ever anticipate. Teri Garr makes a great cameo as a disgruntled former employee of the `mascot's' firm. Conchata Ferrell is a hilarious character actress that brings levity to every scene as Salman's boss (this woman is brilliant). The turnabout ending is perfect as truth comes visiting and the family dynamics produce a believable and welcome happy ending.

To add: I have never seen SO MANY deleted scenes as extras on any DVD. And all of them are priceless. This is the kind of film you wish you could have witnessed the filming from beginning to end. Lots of extras on this DVD.

Doesn't the title of this film arouse memories of your childhood reading your favorite superhero comic book? Kabluey was one of the sounds indicating a loud, ground shaking explosion letting the reader know that the commencement of hostilities between powerful enemies had just begun. I think the spelling was different but I believe the comparison is valid and accurate. The quirky '08 film `Kabluey' tells the tale of a family about to self-destruct. With the prolonged absence of her husband overseas fighting the war in Iraq poor Leslie (Lisa Kudrow) has fallen into deep depression mode and her two young sons aren't fairing much better. In an act of desperation she invites her inept, out of work brother-in-law Salman (Scott Prendergast) to move in and help take care of her two sons while she's at work.

Upon his arrival it immediately becomes obvious that Salman is no better off than they are and hence the situation appears to be progressing from bad to worse. With Leslie's help Salman is hired to wear an outlandish blue costume and stand on the highway passing out brochures' advertising rental space. What first appears to be yet another disaster slowly begins to turn into a stroke of good fortune and Salman finds himself a popular figure amongst the local children attracted to the cartoon-like figure. Hiding within the `blue man' he discovers a part of himself that eventually gives him the strength and courage to do what he must do with or without the costume.

`Kabluey' is one of those slow moving indie films that rely more on visuals and mood than on dialogue or storyline to sustain audience interest and that it does quite well. It also contains an off-beat soundtrack perfect for the surreal environment unfolding on-screen. Maybe not something that would stand up well to repeated viewings but certainly worth seeing at least once.

2007's Kabluey is a brilliant, offbeat film written, directed by and starring the quirky Scott Prendergast.

Salman(Prendergast) is a 30-something year old who's got nothing to show for himself, without enough money to buy even a bus ticket. He's called for a favor; to help his brother's wife and kids while he is away at war.

The life at home is chaotic and Salman is not welcomed with open arms by either of the two children or his sister-in-law Leslie(Lisa Kudrow).

When Salman lands a job as a big blue character handing out fliers for open office space for rent on the side of a not-so-busy street, Salman begins to get some attention that he deserves.

With a little help from the alien-like blue suit, Salman starts to turn his life around; performing at a child's birthday party, connecting with his nephews, and replacing a kind old man's thermos.

Includes a great offbeat indie soundtrack and fabulous surreal and hilarious visuals, with cutting witty dialogue.

Kabluey is enjoyable, entertaining and a lot of fun. (also, watch the end credits, they are adorable!)

But then, I didn't know what to expect. I got this on a whim after I saw the actress Angela Sarafyan on Twilight - Breaking Dawn Part 2. I checked out her filmography on IMDB and saw Kabluey, which seemed quirky enough for me and so it goes. She is in this for about 5 minutes total. One unexpected pleasure was seeing Terry Garr as an acerbic and disgruntled person, clearly out-of-character for her but done well. The theme is a new spin on out-sourcing. I have to say that I did enjoy this movie although some of it moved very slowly, as it was well played by leads quirky Scott Prendergast and Friend's alumna Lisa Kudrow. And by the way, that blue guy on the side of the road on the cover is NOT a cartoon. I would have given this 3.5 stars -- just not enough for 4.
