Will you do me a kindness?

Winnebago Man - 7/10.
I understand that the director's active part in everything that happens is partly responsible for the fun of the film – giving Jack Rebney the opportunity to react at things – but his pushing and prodding starts to annoy and it becomes overwhelmingly apparent that he wants the Winnebago Man to act and react in the way that he wants, not the way that he necessarily is. He made this movie to make fun, it seems, and Jack Rebney is empathetic because of and in spite of that.
