I don't remember a whole lot about this movie. I just remember it being a little boring.

Altman manages to be old-fashioned and innovative at the same time. The movie itself is a beautiful melody-simple story, great acting, and the catchiest songs (like Bad Jokes) you'll hear all month.

Altman's joyous swan song

A wonderful, easygoing little comedy from Robert Altman, whose ever-roving camera and overlapping dialogue fit perfectly amidst the members of a radio performance group on the program's final night on the air. Altman, in all his pleasantries, creates a medley of philosophy, intrigue, pratfalls and some good old fashioned music (mostly sung by the likes of Lily Tomlin, Woody Harrelson, Lindsay Lohan, John C. Reilly and Meryl Streep) in Hollywood karaoke style. Kevin Kline is wildly amusing playing the kind of private detective Humphrey Bogart played in the 1940's, though with more comedic flourish. Garrison Keillor (truly a comic presence) with his suspenders and looking like a giant thumb with his hangdog features, who is the grandmaster of the proceedings (and helmer of the screenplay...
