Movie review: Dana Carvey: Straight While Male, 60

Comedian Dana Carvey examines Hitler, Chinese factory workers, his role as a father of millennials, and teenagers in this comedy special.

Back again, Dana proves he can still bring the laughs in this comedy special. Tackling topics like millennials, Hitler, and Chinese factory workers he keeps the laughs coming with his silly stories and wise-cracks. While there were some great bits here, there were some that fell flat such as Trump impressions which have grown old.

Technical work, such as it is with stand-up comedy, was well done.

Overall Carvey can still make us laugh, but not quite as much as he used to. While he is absolutely not politically correct and will offend millennials quite easily, between the dead spots there are some good laughs that many will enjoy.

With some mild foul language and questionable material, this should be fine for older teens and above.
