Debby and I watched Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona the other day. Good film. Here and there during the movie I had to remind myself that it is probably funny. And as soon as I thought that, I found it to be funny! Even to the point that I laughed out loud.
But I could have easily sat through the whole movie without realizing it was supposed to be funny. I would wager that I have done that at least once in my life: watch a movie that is supposed to be funny without ever realizing that was the case. And then thinking “strange movie.”
On the other hand, I find Craig Ferguson to be very funny. I actually find him to be funny even when he is being juvenile.
But Conan O’ Brian isn’t funny at all.
By the way, Vicky Cristina Barcelona is really good. Filmed in terrific settings, very good acting, and a decent script. And Allen is not in it (a big plus in my book).
