Rewatch. It's been years since I saw this last, and this time I didn't laugh. At all. L.A. Story feels both like a long inside joke about LA stuff and a pile of clichés of everything that's wrong or weird about LA. That mixed with dream-like sequences to the beat of Enya makes this an unusual combination, but not a very strong one. The comedy is lazy and the surrealism doesn't go far enough.
