Customer, can you hear me? - Momma's Man is funny (& available for streaming on Netflix)

I avoided watching Momma's Man when it first came around because a lot of critics liked it a lot & also mostly because they made it sound like it was depressing, but, after barely making it through an episode of Californication (very painful to watch, and not in any kind of a good way, except maybe for the nudity) tonight and having realized that I've seen all the Office & 30 Rock episodes available on Netflix I decided to check out Momma's Man. I am about 30 mins. into it (had to take a break to help a neighbor), so far the movie is really funny - in a low key way - about a dude hiding out from his life in California at his parent's apt in NYC.

In a way there is a relationship between Californication & Momma's Man. Both shows are somewhat about artists. In Californication the lead character is a writer, but the show is really like some bad fantasy for dudes who are getting old - full of cliches. Momma's Man features real life artists playing a version of themselves (main character dude's parents), also it is about a kind of escapism, but a lot easier to enjoy than Californication.

(i am, however, a big fan of x-files, so, david d., when we run into each other, don't complain about this post, californication just needs better writing - or maybe not, maybe it's customers are very happy with that product).

Anyway, check out Momma's Man (for those of you with Netflix, it's available for streaming). It's not depressing, & is actually funny - even though critic types are into it it's just a regular movie. Here's a trailer:

Also, since I am talking a lot about Californication in this post, here's a little of that, for compare & contrast purposes (& yes, even though i complain about it, i'll probably watch another episode at some point):

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.
