Charming if flimsy ode to LA from Steve Martin that definitely has it's moments, but it's more than a little self-indulgent.

Very funny and witty.

Steve Martin is at his best here, equal to his wonderful performance in "Roxanne". Victoria Tennant is the perfect choice as the off-beat, tuba-playing British journalist Martin's character falls for. Sarah Jessica Parker is absolutely priceless as SanDeE* (that's her spelling, not a typo), the young would-be spokesmodel/bimbette who "likes to point". Even Rick Moranis as the comedic Cockney grave digger is wonderful, despite his having one of the least believable accents since Dick van Dyck as the chimneysweep Bert in "Mary Poppins".
Steve Martin at his funniest and most clever. This is a very effective, very funny fable that says quite a bit about the magical power of love...at least as it relates to the movies. Every critical response I remember reading about this movie focused way to...
