Fun stunt. Nothing compares to movie, so thankfully Energizer actor Mark Setlock avoided lampoon; adaptor Steve Murray slipped in wise-ass narrative. Less range than hoped, and tenderness rushed, but perfect mix of ribbing, respect. Dex Edward’s exceptional scenery filled Newmark with memorable hints of Bedford Falls without overcrowding solo actor.
