Trailer Analysis: Clear History (Larry David Like You’ve Never Seen Him Before)

I’m a huge fan of Larry David.  Seinfeld‘s one of my favorite TV series of all time and Curb Your Enthusiasm never fails to make me laugh.  However, the movie industry has not been kind to the legendary television writer.  His Sour Grapes was critically maligned (Roger Ebert infamously gave it zero stars) and his collaboration with Woody Allen Whatever Works wasn’t well received either.  Clear History, David’s newest film, breaks the mold by not only airing on HBO but giving David hair.

That’s the only thing we see in the teaser: Larry David with a beard.  The site is actually pretty funny (at least if your familiar with Larry David), if it doesn’t offer much about what Clear History is about.  But who cares, it’s Larry David!  The movie costars Michael Keaton, Bill Hader, Kate Hudson, Danny McBride, Eva Mendes, Philip Baker Hall, and J.B. Smoove and is directed by Greg Mottola.


  1. Awesome! Can’t wait for this. Curb Your Enthusiasm is my favorite show ever. The cast looks great in this.

    • I’m a huge Curb fan myself and I love me some Larry David.

  2. I thought Sour Grapes was hilarious – but I also thought I was the only person who had ever seen it…

    • To be fair, Sour Grapes had some good moments but I was kind of expecting more.

  3. Seinfeld is one of my all time favorites, along with The Simpsons.


    • The Simpsons and Seinfeld are two of my all time favorite shows as well. Whatever David does I will always watch.

  4. I’m a huge fan of Larry David as well, when you combine Curb and Seinfeld, that to me is a Grand Slam! Cannot wait for this!

    • I can’t wait either. The last few seasons of Curb have been very strong and Larry David always makes me laugh.

      • He’s a comedic genius really. I would to see Woody Allen do something with him.

  5. Hell yea. I haven’t seen his theatrical stuff, but I’m right there with you on his tv shows. And those 31 seconds were enough to sell me.

    • Sour Grapes and Whatever Works are disappointing but David’s TV work are fantastic. I’m always up to seeing anything he does.

  6. The supporting cast list looks good. Loved Seinfield but never got into Curb.

    • Oh, I love Curb. It’s a great show, but works best in small doses.

      Yeah, the supporting cast does look very strong. I hope David can pull it off.

  7. I’ll be honest, I love Curb, but I’ve never seen any of Larry David’s films. Might check this one out though.

    • I wasn’t big on Sour Grapes or Whatever Works, but his TV work is great. I’m big on Curb as well and I’m really looking forward to this.

  8. I had no idea this was a thing. I love LD! Thanks for the heads up on this.
