Directed by Carl Gottlieb
Written by Steve Martin
Starring Steve Martin, Buck Henry, Teri Garr
This short film (7 minutes) chronicles the outrageously bad service that an absent-minded waiter (Martin) gives to a couple (Henry and Garr). It's classic Steve Martin from the apex of his stand-up period, when he used to play it prior to his performances. Simple and very funny.
