• Saw "Jexi" on a bargain Tuesday today with zero expectations because of the pile-on negativity of the critical reaction to it. Why did I still go? Because as everyone knows comedy is personal, and I wanted to see if it happened to connect with my personal sense of humor (plus I usually find Adam DeVine, Rose Byrne, and Wanda Sykes reliably funny). Glad I took the chance: I laughed out loud multiple times, loved the fact it was actually filmed on the streets of San Francisco (a city I've grown up loving the look and feel of since I was a kid), and even had a momentary mini deja-vu flash reminder of one of my favorite comedies of all time, Peter Bogdanovich's "What's Up, Doc?" during an out-of-control bicycle stunt on one of The City's steepest streets. I'm still cracking up remembering scenes and lines from the film days later.
