06.05.07DVD Doc on Jerry Seinfeld's post-show new act. I guess it's also a little bit about up and comer Orney Adams but the movie actually feels like it uses him a bit unfairly. I guess that's the only bad thing I can say about this... I liked it the first time I saw it, I like it now. Season 8 of Seinfeld's show just came out and it got me in a mood to watch this again because I keep reembering like a half dozen great little scenes or lines from here like the story he tells Orny about the musicians out in the cold looking in at the happy family or Jerry's work ethic revelation involving construction workers or the deleted scene about how some bits just come into this world funny and refuse to die while other ideas you coddle and carefully mold together and no matter how much care and attention you put into it the thing still dies. I think this movie's a great glimpse into the night-to-night working stand up's life but the stuff Jerry talks about can be extrapolated to any artistic medium. Really good film (and the trailer's hilarious).
