Lost In America
This movie has a few pretty funny scenes but completely loses its narrative drive at around minute 45 and then becomes incredibly slow and boring and one-note. LONG shots of Albert Brooks walking down a small-town street. Just walking, not expressing any sort of feeling or interacting with anyone. Julie Hagerty's character is grating and dumb without any charm to balance her out. Her "yuppie" wardrobe is so odd and dowdy and unflattering it's pretty riveting in and of itself.
