When I received this DVD as a gift, I tried very hard to watch, after seeing the glowing reviews written by some of the people here. Unfortunately, while I found certain scenes extremely funny, I just could not get into the movie *as a whole*, and I finally just lost patience halfway through and had to turn it off. The trouble was, I felt like there were far too many extraneous shots, or lines that just came out of nowhere. And, if I may be blunt, I didn't care for some of the renditions of the Talking Heads' songs. I like this band, I really do--the trouble is, I don't like the way the songs came off *in this movie*. I also admit I'd hoped to hear some from Remain in Light and Speaking in Tongues, which are my two favorite albums of theirs by far.
As I said, there were good points. David Byrne himself is definitely the most prominent one...as others have said, his commentary is quite funny to listen to, and I get a kick out of the intent expression on his face as he delivers these strange remarks. Also, certain scenes were very funny--the one that makes fun of all those 80s music videos was spot on, and just about had me rolling on the floor laughing! The woman who never got out of bed also had me laughing hysterically. And, you have to admit there's a certain truth to the dating-by-computer mishaps...it's just amazing that even so far back it would occur to David Byrne to portray this.
Unfortunately, half of the movie (such as that ridiculous fashion show) simply had me raising an eyebrow and returning a stare as blank as Byrne's could be sometimes. I simply could not enjoy this experience as a whole, and while I cannot give it a 1-star review due to its good points, this is something I will definitely not be seeing again...better to sell it back and get myself something else.
