Real Life ★★★ 1979 (R)

Writer/comedian Brooks's first feature sags in places, but holds its own as a vehicle for his peculiar talent. Brooks plays a pompous director whose ambition is to make a documentary of a “typical” American family. Good, intelligent comedy. 99m/C VHS, DVD . Charles Grodin, Frances Lee McCain, Albert Brooks; D: Albert Brooks; W: Monica Johnson, Harry Shearer, Albert Brooks; C: Eric Saarinen; M: Mort Lindsey.
