Trailers from Hell’s Charlie Largent gives us the comedy lowdown on Albert Brooks’ and Monica Johnson’s response to “those ferociously materialistic young professionals whose numbers blossomed during the Reagan administration” — the dreaded YUPPIES. This acerbic road movie details what happens when an upwardly mobile hot-shot decides to get back to nature and “touch Indians”. The result is a mile-a-minute talk fest worthy of writer-directors like Billy Wilder, Woody Allen and Preston Sturges. On Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.
