Too Serious for a Silly Plot

I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I this this movie needed to be a little campier.

Television made him famous, but his biggest hits happened off screen.

" "When you are young, your potential is infinite. You might do anything, really. You might be Einstein. You might be DiMaggio. Then you get to an age where what you might be gives way to what you have been. You weren't Einstein. You weren't anything. That's a bad moment."
