THE PLOT THUS FAR
Bobcat Goldthwait is back with a vengeance in his long-awaited Stand-up Comedy special ‘You Don’t Look The Same Either.’ The genre-defying Police Academy alum, comedian, actor and now accomplished film director’s takes us on a hilarious journey through his 30 year career as an 80’s icon to the guy who lit the tonight show set on fire… literally.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
Bobcat Goldthwait has just floored me as a director. Now, I’m having a harder time with his return to stand-up comedy. Most of the material is what you would expect, as he brings up his past a lot. However, there’s a focus to the jokes that you don’t hear in a Post Dane Cook world. Stay focused, man. Don’t turn this into another rant against Dane Cook.
The material is funny enough, even though the set is short. I know that these setups prevent a lot of people from investing heavily in these DVDs. Just think about it like this. You’d buy their standup CDs or MP3s and they are the same length. Think of them as video albums dedicated to comedians that you like.
The DVD comes with no special features. If you only the guy from Police Academy, then this DVD will turn you off. However, Goldthwait has a lot to say and can structure his act to perfection. In the end, I’d recommend a rental.
