3.0 out of 5 stars Good, But Starting To Show Cracks, 7 Oct 2011
This review is from: Curb Your Enthusiasm: Complete HBO Season 4 [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
Usually by the fourth season, people start thinking this is good and it should end before it goes sour. This couldn't be far from the truth, but there are elements of this season I really didn't enjoy.

For a start I'm not a musicals fan, so for Larry to do that just seems rather daft. I can't see Mel Brooks looking at Larry for this role. Then again, there were some fun moments in this, Like David Schwimmer's father getting angry with Larry, and the blind guy making a return and Larry making fun of his girlfriend. Otherwise the whole Larry being in the Producers thing was rather annoying for me.

Some of the brighter moments come outside that cadre, like when Larry goes to the doctor, Ben Stiller's party, which Larry makes a mockery of and Larry hiring a hooker to get into a car pool lane.

Again, there are some funny moments in this, but the musicals moments were just too much for me. I guess you either like it or don't and for me it wasn't a good move. Does not mean to say this isn't one of Larry's finest moments, it just means I didn't find it so funny.

Sadly this DVD is bare - no extras at all and no commentaries - which makes it a bad deal. At least the disks are DVD9's which makes up of the lack of extras, as the quality is high. Would have been nice to see some sort of interview with Mel, David or Ben about working with Larry, but sadly that's not there. I wish they had done like Scrubs and taken a regular and interviewed them, but that's not the case.

Not a bad DVD, just not their best.
