It’s really all about the lists
“What the hell are you doin’, Harry? Mr. Trashcan!”
Second half of a Brooks double feature with Real Life. Perfectly captures the teeter-totter imbalance of positive and negative energy in people’s life and the self destructive means they take of keeping the scales from stagnating. The film borders on being semiotic dissection of the romantic comedy but is too sincere to be reduced to a scientific formula. It also features one of the best single shot comedy gags I’ve ever seen in my entire life.
