Reviews
Mine: Funny in spurts. The main problem is that it is hard to spoof L.A.. Nothing is over the top there so it is hard to make it more ridiculous than it acctually is (IMHO). Some funny ideas.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Martin wrote this amusing piece of fluff about a wacky TV weatherman trying to sort out his life. Slender story thread allows Martin to make comic observations about living in trend-conscious L. A. , some of them mild, some of them worthy of laughing out loud. Several of Martin's comedy cronies make cameo appearances. A deleted scene with John Lithgow was added for the film's cable-TV debut.
