What do you get when you combine an overrated actor, an actress who hasn't been relevant since Cheers, and an annoying clown? Yep, you get the "Princess Party" episode of Modern Family.
This was actually not that bad a show. Claire was kind of funny here, and Phil was not terrible. But the two guest stars, as I mentioned, Shelley Long and Matt Dillon, were absolute train wrecks. This show does not need to be reduced to stuntcasting to generate laughs.
They tried too hard to have a Curb Your Enthusiasm style moment with Jay and Gloria leaving the answering machine message as well. That irked me a bit. Do people even own answering machines anymore?
Some laughs here, but you know what it is, the show is just so overrated.
