Oh my...I found the DVD just last night...It had fallen behind my
bookshelf...It was a really chance occurrence that I found it...So I watched
it--I haven't seen it in years and I was very disappointed in it. The
impersonation makes Glenn look like a solemn, pretentious, weirdo. It DIDN'T
exude Glenn's essence at all. I don't know how I could have said earlier
that it did. :/ If I had not known who Glenn was before I watched this, I
don't think it would have inspired an interest in him. This actor never
cracks a smile or makes a joke and Glenn was enormously funny and
goofy--that is my favorite part about his personality. Also, when the child
actor plays a young Glenn, why is there a scene of Glenn sitting on the end
of a dock on the lake repeating mathematical equations like a zombified
freak? Is there an anecdote of Glenn even doing something like this? I am
sorry if I offend anyone with my bitterness towards this portrayal. I know
some people do like it. But it wholly neglects the most important, charming
personality traits of Glenn.
