    My Breakfast With Blassie
    In essentially a two-man tour-de-force that parodies the better-known Dinner with Andre by Louis Malle, My Breakfast with Blassie features the late Andy Kaufman (he died from lung cancer soon after this film was released) and Freddie Blassie as two egocentric wrestlers -- roles they played in real life. As the two men display their egos like peacocks strutting their plumage, the reactions of people around them are as funny as the "breakfasting" duo. Kaufman announces "I'm a famous TV star" (he played Latka, the foreign mechanic on Taxi) and Blassie's open male chauvinism is so exaggerated as to be only humorous. The two also poke fun at banal table talk in-between their interchanges and develop a few other running gags. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
