We gave it a C

What happens when an independent art-house film grapples with the lowbrow world of cheapo tabloid TV? Not much at all. Grief tries for Larry Sanders Show zaniness, but the overemoting cast can’t even make circus lesbians very amusing. It’s too bad, too, because this is one of those small films with its heart in the right place — dealing with gay relationships, loss, and loneliness — but after a while, its good-for-you earnestness goes down like bitter medicine.
