A warning to readers: though Ben Stiller (Flirting with Disaster) and Janeane Garofalo (The Truth About Cats and Dogs) used to be a couple, do not confuse their advice book with Chicken Soup for the Couple's Soul. This is more of a cross between James Thurber and E.B. White's satirical Is Sex Necessary? and MTV's Beavis and Butt-Head: Chicken Soup for the Butt.

The ex-couple give us alternating chapters of remarkably rambling, extravagantly ironic, showbiz-insider's philosophical musings, but they do discuss their actual relationship, just to let you know where they stand--right on your funny bone, exerting maximum pressure until you beg for mercy. After their breakup, writes Garofalo, "We agreed that in the future we would only meet for professional purposes, or if we were drunk and felt like having emotionally destructive sex."

This faux tome (also read by the authors on audiocassette) is a meeting of the minds for professional purposes. But again, don't be fooled by what these wily authors say! The intriguing chapters referred to in the opening pages--"Why Can't I Sleep Around and Still Love You?"; "How to Fake an Orgasm to Show Your Love, or The Art of the Squeal"; "Negotiating with God for What You Want--and Getting It!"; "Pros and (Very Few) Cons of a Third Party in the Bedroom"--these chapters do not in fact exist! What does exist is a dog's breakfast of jokes from a pair of clowns. Read it and weep, but heed it at your peril. --Tim Appelo -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.

Synopsis

Shares observations on topics ranging from ways to make money off a spouse, to fidelity, neuroses, sex, and death. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.

When I fisrt opened this book, I was expecting Stiller to be funny and Garofalo to be witty. I did not think for one second the book would be taken "seriously" by either. However, I was shocked by the material I was presented. Some was really great, some was extrememly poor. To my suprise it was Stiller who provided me with thought-provoking insight and offered a very well expressed vision of self-empowerment and affirmation, i.e. the "Faster-Mations." Garofalo on the other hand was one of those pseudo-cynics/pseudo-intellectuals that one just cannot stand. She had some great ideas, but she went no where with them. Her extensive vocabulary is impresive, but well over-used. If I wasn't an English major, I wouldn't have understood what she was saying half the time; not to mention her views on relationships and spirituality are just irrational and boring. I am not very religious, but I am very spiritual and I assume she is the same way. There are limits to what offends the masses and what opens their eyes. I guess I just have a hard time believing she is as smart as she thinks she is. All in all, a pretty good read thanks to a stellar performance by Stiller. Rest assured this book will make you think!!!

I liked the book, but did it have to contain so many references to "brilliant, much too overlooked" comedian David Cross? To wit:
1) Chapter 4 is entitled "Why David Cross makes us laugh-fall-down!"
2) Chapter 7 is entitled "See Chapter 4."
2) The "Acknowledgments" page acknowledges only David Cross... 146 times.
3) The "audiotape version" of this book is actually a bootleg version of David Cross' 1966 farewell concert at Bill Graham's Laffapalooza.
4) Charles Joffe's "David Cross is the only worthy successor to Swift..." encomium appears as a three-dimensional pop-up centerpiece.
5) Michael Fuchs's notorious "Is this guy too angry to be on at 4 A.M. every other Wednesday?" memo is reprinted in its entirety.
6) Several oblique references to "the late Bob Odenkirk" sprinkled throughout "wacky index."
7) If you ruffle the top corner pages with your thumb, you can see a cartoon of an extremely bitter man doing underappreciated comedy.
8) David's guest appearances on "Veronica's Closet" and "Suddenly Susan" are cited as sterling examples of his lifelong strive for comedic excellence.
What gives?

Janeane is queen and Stiller is, well, I can't think of anything to rhyme with Stiller. But he's great, too. I have been a fan of JG's since I was a cynical, jaded adolescent and she captured my thoughts about society so well. JG is a talent that has yet to be fully recognized by the media, but I'm afraid her work, especially THIS book, is just too "right on the money" and thought-provoking for the American media to really understand its depth and importance. Stiller is, of course, another master of comedy and parody. I always enjoy his humor, although at times I feel guilty laughing at things I shouldn't really think are funny.... All in all, JG and Stiller struck a chord in me with this book and really went to town. It's a brilliant work of writing and anyone who doesn't "get" Garofalo's paradoxical and satirical quips and rants.....well, I just feel sorry for them.

I could handle Janeane Garofalo's essay's (mildly) but, Ben Stiller was just down right awful. I must say, I was very sadden by this poor attempt at humor from two of the funniest people out there. I'm a huge fan of JG's but, this was just a weak try at being funny. You could almost hear them trying so hard to be smart, full of humor, and a bit on the cutting edge. They really missed the mark. I can't even imagine getting threw a chapter of the print book, at least I had the audio that had mild entertainment value. JG's reading was a step above Ben's but, that wasn't enough to make this book could. Her over abundant use of her (obviously plentiful) vocabulary just got on my nerves. I was really disappointed in this lack luster tale. I was all set to love it and have a wonderful time. Too bad it was such a let down. Don't waste your time....I'm sad I did.

I bought this book because I read an interview with Janeane in the Evening Standard (London) in which she talked about the experience of writing this book with Ben. So, without a second thought I logged onto amazon and three weeks later (I live in England) the book was here.
It's a very quick read - large print and a small package - but page after page is pure humour! I've never laughed so much from reading a book in my life! I had to bite my lip to keep from laughing out loud on the train (which over here is a serious offence!). The bit about Ben and his journey to "find himself" had me in stitches!
I don't know about it being a self-help book - I bought it cause I wanted to laugh - but I guess it does help you in a way, because if nothing else you laugh your tush-y off (and trust me, if you saw the size of mine - it's not a bad thing!)
