I wanted more Mercedes Ruehl going tiger style in tiger print pants, and less of her taking Jack back when he doesn’t deserve it.
I wanted more of Jack as a shock jock, and less of him as a manipulative schmuck.
I wanted more of Robin Williams story-telling in Central Park, and less close-ups of his Wookie-ish body hair.
I wanted more of Amanda Plummer’s quivering neuroses, and less of her not being in scenes.
I wanted a few less scenes shot in canted angles, and more shots relying on the incredible production design, stunning Red Knight practical effects, and workplace cabaret performances.
There were several beautiful and poignant scenes in this film, such as the waltz in Grand Central Station. Not my favorite Gilliam, but it’s almost impossible to top Brazil.
