Handsome (Netflix 2017)

You might really like the cast, and a few scenes are amusing, but Handsome unfortunately is not very good. Jeff Garlin directed and stars in it, and it has Jeff Garlin all over it, but without Larry David, Jeff Garlin is, well, not memorable. Natasha Lyonne, from OITNB, turns in the best performance by far--indeed, she steals every scene she's in. And Kelly Cuoco comes in a close second--although in her case it's the script she gets to read that makes her appearance. If you like Craftsman homes, that's a plus because the neighborhood is a neighborhood of Craftsman homes. It's a murder mystery but it has no tension. In sum, nothing can save Handsome, not even some of the bawdy language.
