Just happened to catch this movie the other night flippin through the channels - got hooked in the first few minutes couldn't tear myself away. . . it's probably one of the most creative projects I've ever seen... been telling all my friends about it since. I've seen Stephen in so many different movies but had no idea what a funny guy he really is! Would never have dreamed that a 90 min movie of someone telling stories could be so entertaining. . . truly charming! Buying it for family members for the holidays.

I love Tobolowsky's storytelling amd regularly listen to his blog. This is more of the same, but filmed. The situation seems contrived, though, and the production values pretty low rent. For instance, when others were interviewed about him (of which there was far too little), there were no titles to tell us who they were. Still, a cute little film, worth a watch.

I am someone who enjoys stories. Especially when they are true and personal. This movie fit that perfectly. Having never really paid attention to Stephen other than just enjoying his work like other character acters in film. This brought a glimpse into his life and world we would otherwise never have a clue about. Listen to his podcasts and these wonderful stories go on and on. Stephen appears to me as someone who has lived life and is living it still.

This movie consists of Stephen Tobolowsky telling stories about his life. Who would watch this movie thinking that's what it is? I wouldn't have, but I did, thinking it was a kind of a funny "man on the street," hidden camera thing (thanks to Netflix's representation). I really enjoyed it. It's similar to "My Dinner with Andre", but with more movement and funnier. It is the sort of movie you would want to buy and watch again.

This is a great intro to Stephen if you haven't listened to his podcasts. If you have, it's fun to see him do some of those stories live. Plus, there are several great "new" stories in there that are the frosting on the cake. Good Stuff!

I'm a big fan of "It's that guy!" actors, and within that genre, Tobolowsky leads the pack. Who knew he'd be so interesting in real life.

I first experienced this film last year during a screening at FilmFest Kansas City. I was delighted to see a different side to an actor whose work I already enjoyed. I knew after seeing it that it was a film I wanted to own. I bought it for myself for my own birthday and am eager to share the gift. Tobolowsky's anecdotes amused and moved me; his experience filming MISSISSIPPI BURNING nearly brought me to tears. As a member of Toastmasters, I appreciate the art of telling a well-crafted story--the ease and economy of his gestures during the Ronald McDonald story demonstrates this. I felt certain that the DVD release would surely include additional material, and it does not disappoint--another 90 minutes of good but sometimes less-compelling stories with less emphasis on his film career. Both the feature and the additional material are appropriately accessible by story. I recommend this DVD with great affection. Tobolowsky is definitely one of the 100 coolest people on DVD.

If you've read Dangerous Animals Club, some of these stories are ones you've heard before, but this is a "must watch" for Tobo fans.
