I'd been warned that this Cinemax Comedy Experiment wasn't really supposed to be funny. Doesn't matter a bit. Belushi is a charmer and so's his show. He plays a salesman who has a rotten birthday from the moment he accidentally drops his kid, and she tells him, "I hate you," until he ends up moaning alone in a Holiday Inn piano bar. So I didn't laugh much. I grinned a lot.
