Really disappointed. Have seen "Lost In America" included in "best of" lists for years, but it was just okay. I understood the satirical themes and am familiar with Albert Brooks' shtick, but it just wasn't very funny.
There were some funny moments, such as the one jhhayes quoted in his commment, but I don't think it's for me. I'm too young to really have the generational context, and the scenes feel like they run themselves dry. Just not my cup of tea, and that's ok.
