How did this movie ever get made??!
I'm a Vincent Gallo nut. I love the guy and would even watch a movie of him reciting the phone book. That would probably be more entertaining than sitting through 'Get Well Soon'. Apparently this is a comedy. Coulda fooled me. The only laugh I got out of it was the sheer audacity of the video cover blurb which said it was "in the tradition of 'There's Something About Mary'. Say what?! '..Mary' was actually funny, 'Get Well Soon' isn't. And apart from that the similarity is? You tell me!

Vincent Gallo ('Buffalo 66', 'Palookaville') plays Bobby Bishop, a hip talk show host. He appears to be cracking up. He leaves his show in disgrace to return to New York and look up his old girlfriend (Courtney Cox) and attempts to woo her back. Mixed up with this are various, I hesitate to even call them sub-plots, involving mental patients and Matthew Broderick's dog. It's too stupid and pointless to even bother elaborating. Gallo radiates charisma, and is always watchable, even when the material is as poor and as dull as this. And boy! is it poor and dull.

The supporting cast includes Jeffrey Tambor (best known for 'The Larry Sanders Show', and who, funnily enough, was actually in 'There's Something About Mary'), Anne Meara (veteran character actor/comedienne, and mother to Ben Stiller), and Elina Lowensohn ('Schindler's List' and various Hal Hartley movies).

This is easily the worst movie Vincent Gallo has been involved with. It's even worse than 'Arizona Dream' which at least had a handful of outstanding scenes involving Gallo to redeem it. 'Get Well Soon' is a tedious bore from start to finish. I honestly can't think of one good thing about it. The fact is it's an awful movie that will please nobody. Let's just pretend it never happened...
