Sure, I'm sure the film glossed over several aspects of the life and times of Douglas Kenney - but the film is so worth watching for the sheer amount of comedic talent involved. It is quite spread out, so you only get a brief glimpse of some of the talent, but what a roster - and it's apparent they have much respect for the subject. It's a good time, even if it doesn't dig too deep.

Regrettably, this movie arrives in a robe of cheeky self-consciousnesses from which it never succeeds in undressing. Colorful sets abound. Appropriately styled. Just a little bit too paint by numbers. The only part of this character we are shown is his longing nostalgia.
