One-liners For Sale
Get Bruce
Review by Ross Anthony

Bruce is a real life comedy writer, aggressively sought and found by hit performers like Billy Crystal, Robin Williams, Whoopi Goldberg and Better Middler especially for award and event performances like the Oscars. "Get Bruce" is a documentary/biography on Bruce sporting lengthy interviews with the four stars mentioned above and briefer spots with others.

It's fairly interesting and at times very funny, but it doesn't really tell a story. It's more like a definition of the current state of one interesting guy and how useful he is to others. There's no drama, no climax; but as I said -- it is quite amusing. I'm just not sure why it's released on film. It seems to me it would naturally play well for TV audiences.
