Gomez to the surprise of many is also an actor and producer as well as hit singer and she gives a multi-lawyers performance with the as expected Martin and Short. Together, the three of them mesh perfectly into a a performance in itself. Short is truly a better actor than we ever realized, shifting his tone throughout so seemingly well. To see Martin and Short together on screen is so worth every minute of your time. My one observation is Selena’s acting voice she uses or chooses to use for this character. Also, off all the talent in the business today - the choice seems clear to be a - bring-in-the-younger hip audience factor with a popular Gomez. That said - the show still works beautifully but it is truly Martin and Short that shine and are a sheer pleasure to watch on screen.
