L.A. Story

(out of 5)


‘s rumination on the Big Nipple is a collection of smarmy, sarcastic jokes and whimsically skewed situations. He plays a weather reporter who is trying to survive the manic city of Los Angeles and the manic, overbearing personality of his wife () before romances with a delightfully dizzy Valley Girl (a wise performance by ) and a lovely British woman visiting L.A. on movie business (, Martin’s real-life wife) give him the opportunity to relax. It is eventually the very city that threatens to destroy him that ends up helping him move on with his life and get to a higher place of happiness. It has its moments, but it’s too bitter and nasty in tone to be compared to something like Woody Allen’s love poem to the Big Apple, Manhattan.
