My First Mister

Rated NR

In perhaps the first film about a relationship between an older man and a younger woman that does not involve what the ancient Sumerians called "doing it until you drop," Albert Brooks gives a seamless performance as an emotionally deadened man who is livened up by a young hipster chick. Sure, this has been done before in films like Breezy and Michael Douglas' Love Life, but if you can tolerate a somewhat tired plot and some mediocre acting by the supporting cast, My First Mister may be worth the price of admission. The humor is intelligent, and thanks to Brooks' delivery, consistently funny, and Leelee Sobieski is decent enough as the young goth girl who introduces Brooks to cappuccino and annoying dance music with pretentious lyrics. My First Mister is kind of a double-reverse Harold and Maude, without all the hippy crap, and maybe a little smarter and a tad less charming. But still, worth a look for the clever moments in the script and Brooks' fine performance.
