Is It Any Good?

This comedy is a mixed bag. The good news is that the performances in The Razz Guy are great, energetic, committed, and playful. Also, the pace is quick, runtime tight, and tone happy. The bad news is that the story is thin and the drama and stakes minimal, and most of the humor comes from a singular bit: A man who normally speaks eloquently and perfectly proper is cursed and cannot speak well anymore, only able to speak in his hated "pidgin English," with improperly formed verbs and shorthand and slang.

Thus, the main issue is that if you don't find this bit and its variances funny, then the entire film is a bit of a slog to get through, even if it doesn't overstay its welcome. While we know he'll learn his lesson in the end, we still have to wait until he gets through enough embarrassing moments to get there.
