I'm Not Rappaport

I was fortunate enough to catch a production of this Herb Gardner play a few years back and was quite interested in seeing how he would present it on the big screen. Sadly, despite the stellar work of the late Walter Matthau and Ossie Davis I'M NOT RAPPAPORT just quite doesn't work in movie form. Sure, our two leads are a pleasure to watch but in this format the theme just seems drawn out and the effectiveness of this study of what he means to grow old is lost. Well worth a viewing if you have the time and patience but you would be better served to wait until you can catch it on stage yourself.
