“Clean Slate” (1994)

Insert unoriginal Memento joke here. While a laughingstock nowadays, people forget that Dana Carvey was a talented comedian, and he actually gets in some genuinely funny moments here. Nobody is going to mistake this for high art. And like most comedies, it doesn’t take full advantage of its high concept comedic premise. While I wouldn’t classify this as a great comedy, or even a good comedy, it did manage to illicit some laughs out of me, far more than I was expecting, as a matter of fact. Call this one of my guilty pleasures, because I can’t really defend this film other than it had a great set-up, and I just so happened to find it funny. Make of that what you will.
