Review: Funny Old Guys

Doctober Festival Quite Strong This Year

From the Daily Breeze, 9/02

Funny Old Guys: Sounds like fun-watching a bunch of retired comedy writers at their informal weely get-together at the Mulholland Tennis Club. Then one of the members, blacklist survivor Frank Tarloff, finds he hasn't long to live. Calling a film a "meditation" has become a critics' cliché, but for this moving film, it fits. So who gets the last laugh?
