Ep. 20 – “The Impostors” (1998)

Hot off his debut film, Big Night, Stanley Tucci wrote and directed this comedy in the style of Wilder/Marx/Hardy/Costello… to mixed success.  Mixed, meaning it is right up Mark’s alley, and diametrically opposed to the very fiber of Chad’s being.  It’s a movie about actors that was made by actors, so it’s no surprise that the attitudes and quirks of actors are captured well here.  Much like the surplus of subplots that never add up to anything, The Impostors has a collection of funny sketches that never coalesce into something greater.  For fans of old school comedies only!
