Deconstructing Humor

Incredibility humorous take on the life of a sad pathetic self loathing Jew is the main story if Deconstructing Harry.
The movie floats between reality and fantasy.

It's about a writer who characterizes his characters in the book basing them on his real life acquaintances. Each character throws light more on the bad than the good for the author is a pessimist. Now all these real people hate him for what he did. Hence he is a loner.
The movie plot is about this guy trying to attend his honoring ceremony the next day in a college which threw him out years ago.
Now the thing is, he has nobody to take along with him, he being such a loner. And he keeps trying to invite everyone he can, including the hooker he has over the night before the ceremony.

The movie has these small open ended stories of his cropping up in between, each based on someone he knew and it blends on the line of fantasy.

All I have to say is it's interestingly hilarious as he makes fun of his own misery.
Harry: All people know the same truth. Our lives consist of how we chose to distort it.
Harry to his kid son: The two most important things are the work that you choose and sex.
Harry: Does the president think of fucking every woman he meets? Oh sorry, bad example.
Harry's sister: You have no values. With you its all nihilism, cynicism, sarcasm, and orgasm. Harry: Hey, in France I could run for office with that slogan, and win!
Awesome watch for laughs!
