Steve Martin wrote and stars in this look at the promise and dreamtime of Los Angeles culture. Martin stars as Harris K. Telemacher, a light-hearted television weatherman who does wacky comedy in lieu of reports since, being in L.A., he has very little weather to report. He spends his time roller-skating through museums and spending time with California's beautiful people. But Telemacher is fired and discovers that his girlfriend Trudi (Marilu Henner) is having an affair. He walks away from the relationship and re-evaluates his life, getting advice from a friendly electronic highway road sign. The sign suggests that he call SanDeE (Sarah Jessica Parker), a sprightly and attractive Valley Girl he met in a clothing store. With SanDeE he experiences a liberating and carefree spirit. But Telemacher comes to realize that he has actually fallen in love with Sara (Victoria Tennant), a tuba-playing British journalist who is in California to do a feature on Los Angeles lifestyles.

Beware. This film is about Los Angeles. If you don't find LA culture quirky, annoying or interesting you probably won't enjoy this movie, but if you can laugh at stereotypical LA life you will really enjoy this movie. Plenty to laugh about. Some poignant moments. Even though I didn't like the love interest of Steve very much I found myself tearing up at the end. Some classic scenes like the earthquake scene or the road rage scene. Who can forget the coffee orders or the embarassing situation at the hotel in Santa Barbara. Steve Martin plays a hapless comedic weatherman who is getting cheated on by his girlfriend.

this film was so funny, and touching and poignant that it truely stands out in mr. martin's career. the spinning sarah j. parker was also a riot as was marilu henner and even the usually irritating victoria tenament. don't miss this diamond in the rough.

You don't have to know much about L.A. to enjoy this film. Steve Martin is superb as a man looking for love and the meaning of life in a land of superficial people and quirky customs. A funny look at life, relationships and of course...L.A.
