Corpulent comic Louie Anderson once more fractures his audience with trenchant recollections of his checkered childhood in this made-for-cable concert video. Using nothing more than his voice, his expressive hands, and his massive frame, Anderson brings to life his redneck dad, garrulous mom, and whining little brother. It is now a matter of record that Anderson was the product of an extremely dysfunctional household (his father was an often abusive alcoholic), but the comedian manages to put a lid on the bitterness that he's expressed on other occasions. The purpose of Mom! Louie's Looking at Me Again is to get laughs, and in this it succeeds many times over. This 60-minute video is not rated, though it may be a bit too ripe for very small children.
