Storyline

"La La Wood" follows the legacy of Jiminy Glick, first introduced on "The Martin Short Show," who went on to get (non)-critical acclaim for his talk show "Primetime Glick," where Mr. Glick interviewed countless celebrities (which usually ended in verbally--sometimes physically--insulting/assaulting them). Now comes "La La Wood"--Jiminy Glick's home. This is his story (sort of). Written by John Ulmer

Hilarious! Smart! Filthy! Loved it!
23 September 2004 | by ktrostSee all my reviews

I had the chance to see this film at the 2004 Toronto Film Festival . Due to it's predicted success it was showcased as the closing night gala. How fun was it when Martin Short introduced the film and some if it's cast members! I was a huge fan of the show "Primetime Glick" on comedy central, and have been waiting very un-patiently for this film to come out. I love the way the actors being interviewed by "Jiminy" lose their cool and laugh on camera b/c Martin Short is just that ridiculous. The cast is great, can't believe they can pull off that smart humor in a whim! Check out the dreamy DiCarlo played by Corey Pearson and the brilliant Euro-trash-manager-guy played by John Michael Higgins. You HAVE to see this when it comes to a theater near you!
