It Must be Him 

SYNOPSIS

Louie Wexler is down on his luck. Desperate to rekindle his fading career, he searches high and low for one last shot at his own real-life happy ending.

JOY’S REVIEW

It Must Be Him is the story of Louis, who is a Hollywood screen writer who’s fallen on bad times and feels he’s about to lose his house. We go through several sort of skits, including meeting his parents, who are deceased, and his brother with whom he’s competitive, and his housekeeper who is a bit overbearing, and his agent. This is kind of cute and Peter Scolari from Bosom Buddies, is an appealing actor. Maybe I saw this too early in the run because everybody kept going up on their lines. The problem about it is it’s just very dated material and it’s written like a sitcom. Kenny Solms, who wrote it, is in fact one of the guys who writes the skits on the Carol Burnett Show, and that’s really what it looks like; the Carol Burnett Show. It’s not offensive, it’s just something very dated and although some of the audience seemed like they were having a good time. I give it, one star.
