Forget Paris (1995)

Riddle me this, Batman:  when is a romantic comedy unromantic? In FORGET
PARIS, writer/director/star Billy Crystal captures the perfect picture
of a bad marriage, all while focused on two characters with absolutely
*no* screen chemistry.  Go figure. The jokes are strong, though, and
they do wonders to balance the bad drama.  Best bits: Crystal's decon-
struction of "Phantom of the Opera," and William Hickey's walk-thru as

Awful make-up, too.

Grade: C+
