Synopsis:

From IMDb: “A comedy about the unlikely friendship that kindles between a struggling stand-up comedian from L.A., forced to move back home to Eastern Long Island with his tail between his legs, and a tragically flawed, but charming and charismatic, alcoholic dermatologist. Discovering to be kindred spirits, each helps the other find healing, in addition to the confidence to face the “failures” in their lives.”

Review: This isn’t a movie about a boxing announcer, so why did they hang the mic down to separate the two figures. Sure, it plays into the title, but it’s a rather silly design decision for a poster that’s not terribly clever.

Trailer Rating: C

Review: A down on his luck comic is helped out by his dermatologist who is a falling down drunk and drug user. What can the two teach each other? The trailer doesn’t make that clear. It also seems like Billy Crystal is fighting below his weight class here.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
