Even Seinfeld fans will probably shun this dreadful, nasty-hearted film by Seinfeld cocreator and writer Larry David. It's a tepid comedy about cousins--Richie (Craig Bierko) and Evan (Steven Weber)--who enter into a f...  more »

After twenty minutes I had enough

"Maybe the movie would be better with actors better suited to the material, but I found the main characters off-puttingly petty, venal, loud, and obnoxious. Mind you, I love Curb Your Enthusiasm, which parades all those qualities and worse before the viewer, but as a high concept movie it does not work. The pacing is mediocre, the characters are boring, and the premise is inadequate for a feature length movie. I watched this with a friend who is also a fan of Larry David but neither of us could go the distance."

"The only time I saw this movie was when I rented it; I have since bought it. I didn't see it at the movies because the critics slaughtered it, and I wish I had now. It is a very funny movie, written of course by the co-creator of Sienfield, so expect the twists and turns that Sienfield was infamous for, but with a more adult edge. You will find yourself laughing out loud, almost guiltily, and if you don't, well, you're probably dead. It's pure fluff entertainment and worth the DVD's price. I give this movie five popcorn farts. Great stuff."
Seinfeldesque! A hilarious comedy!

"Steven Weber and Criag Beirko play wonderfully side by side in this side-splitting comedy about best-friend cousins--until one of them, Richie (Beirko), wins a jackpot with his cousin Evan's (Weber) quarters. The antics that follow clearly take the path of a typical "Seinfeld" episode. The most lovable charcter is Richie's mother who worries non stop about her son and would have to be killed if something would happen to her son--like if he got a brain tumor! If you were a fan of "Seinfeld," and then again, who wasn't, don't miss "Sour Grapes.""
