Movie With Abe: I Am (Capsule Review)

I Am
Directed by Tom Shadyac
Released March 18, 2011

What insights does the man responsible for “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective,” “Liar Liar,” “Patch Adams,” and “Bruce Almighty” have to offer us? And more importantly, why exactly should we care? This extremely irreverent, rather off-the-wall documentary is all over the place and fairly incomprehensible. There isn’t much logic or sense to it, other than the fact that Shadyac decided to do some self-exploration after he got into a bicycle accident and he thought he’d expose it to the world. By the time he starts explaining that he can move yogurt with his brain, this movie has reached an intolerable point. It runs only 76 minutes and somehow feels like an inescapable eternity.
