Paulie (1998)

PAULIE is an odd bird, a cute, sometimes clever talking-bird-that-
talks-back family comedy, trapped inside a glum, sluggish, episodic 
drama that's guaranteed to put both kids *and* their parents to 
sleep.  Jay Mohr (not Joe Pesci, who he sounds like) voices the 
title character and he has one memorable moment-- a priceless (but 
brief) monologue about "pie."  (Please send, if you transcribed or 
have a copy of the script.)  I can't recommend the movie, but the 
moment's great.  With a whole bunch of folks, including Buddy Hack-
ett, Gena Rowlands, Cheech Marin, and Tony Shalhoub.  Directed by 
John Roberts, with seamless (though relatively few) animatronic 
effects by Stan Winston.  (Rated "PG"/91 min.)
