4.0 out of 5 stars Being Larry David, 29 May 2009
This review is from: Curb Your Enthusiasm: Complete HBO Season 5 [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
After four great seasons of Larry David's misanthropic `reality sitcom', the formula still has legs but is starting to become more and more contrived. David remains his stubborn, frustrating self, and surely it can only be a matter of time before his vacuous but long-suffering wife Cheryl gets completely fed up with him.

The loose story arc for this series is David's discovery that he may be adopted. Of course, Larry is overjoyed about this, but does it mean he's not actually Jewish after all?
Larry embarks upon a voyage of self-discovery, even hiring a private-eye to track down his real parents. With moronic manager and best friend Jeff by his side, Jeff's foul mouthed harridan of a wife Suzy haranguing them at every turn, and Larry's alcoholic buddy comedian Richard Lewis desperate for a kidney that only Larry or Jeff can provide, there are plenty of the inevitable cringe-worthy moments and a fair few laughs along the way.

Other highlights include Larry offending his Hispanic handyman by buying his wife a bra; convincing Jeff's wife Suzie that he's got a fetish for her lingerie; offending a disabled man (again); causing his friend Marty Funkhouser's daughter to ditch her boyfriend for another woman; and buying a dog that only barks at Black people. As his marriage to Cheryl gradually starts to disintegrate, Larry carries on oblivious; as he incurs her wrath by answering the phone during intercourse; questioning her cup size; upsetting her father (again); and offending her touchy friend Wanda (again).

The series finale sees Larry ready and (un)willing to donate his kidney to Richard Lewis; reaching new heights of surrealism, is this really the end of the road for our (anti)hero..?
