    Two Guys Trying Their Best to Grow Old Disgracefully

    Neil Genzlinger

    July 27, 2010: The VCR first appeared more than 30 years ago, which means that pale jokes about not being able to set the device’s clock also first appeared more than 30 years ago. They weren’t funny then, and certainly aren’t funny now, yet there one sits a few minutes into “Viagara Falls,” a painful geriatric comedy now at the Little Shubert Theater.

    'Viagara' falls short with impotent jokes

    Viagara Falls

    David Sheward

    July 27, 2010: That's not a typo in the headline. Joao Machado and Lou Cutell's ramshackle comedy is indeed titled "Viagara Falls." The correct spelling of the popular sex pill is "Viagra." Perhaps the misspelling is to make the title rhyme with Niagara Falls; perhaps it's to avoid a copyright battle. In any case, the awkward title is matched by the sloppy script. The setup is pure sitcom: Charley wants to celebrate his 77th birthday with hookers rather than with his collection of Sinatra records. He attempts to persuade his lifelong pal and fellow widower Moe to join in the fun, pushing his reluctant friend to sample his stash of black-market Viagra. When the lady of the evening arrives—her friend for Moe was pinched by an undercover cop—the little blue tablets get mixed up with aspirin and a slew of predictable jokes and pratfalls ensues.

    Barbara & Scott Siegel

    July 22, 2010: Simply put, Viagara Falls, the labored new comedy by Joa Machado and Lou Cutell now at the Little Shubert, is designed to unleash as many senior citizen sex jokes as possible.

    Viagara Falls

    Elizabeth Ahlfors

    July 22, 2010: The ad states: "WARNING-Ask your doctor if you are healthy enough to engage in hilarious activity. After taking in Viagara Falls, if you maintain hard laughter lasting more than four hours, contact your doctor immediately." True or False? Four hours of laughter? Don't speed dial your doctor for this harmless 90-minute comedy.
