When I was younger, most of my favorite comedies starred SNL alum and frequent hosts like Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, and Steve Martin. Somehow I missed this one, but, then again, it's not really for a younger audience. Based on Bruce Jay Friedman's "The Lonely Guy's Book of Life," this is an offbeat, droll, and occasionally dark comedy about a single man (Martin) and his friend (a dour Charles Grodin) as they navigate life in the city and try to meet women. It has a bit of an "Annie Hall" feel, albeit less neurotic, and some similarities with Martin's later comedy, "L.A. Story." Merv Griffin, Joyce Brothers, Lonnie Anderson, and Steve Lawrence all have brief roles. You also might like "King of Comedy," "After Hours," and "The Jerk."
