Plot & Details
Paul Reiser was still the star of the TV sitcom My Two Dads when he headlined this 60-minute video. Instead of the standard live-before-an-audience approach, Out on a Whim tells a self-contained story. Reiser, playing himself, is from time to time approached by an ethereal lady who wants to know all about "the real thing." Helping Reiser locate this mystery woman are such guest stars as Elliot Gould, Carrie Fisher, Terri Garr and Carol Kane. Out on a Whim was directed by Carl Gottleib, the actor/writer/director who penned the screenplay of Jaws.
