Which Albert Brooks movie opens in a sporting goods store?

IMDB and Wikipedia don't say.

Modern Romance has a classic bit in a Sports Locker. Not the opening scene, though.

Thanks Iridic! I saw it a long time ago at LA's New Beverly....IIRC if not the opening scene,it was fairly early in the movie.

That's Bob Einstein (aka Super Dave) as the sales guy. He is Brook's brother.

Super Dave Osborne, that is. :)

And yes, this means that Albert Brooks' birth name is Albert Einstein. Their dad was a card.

The New Beverly is now owned by Tarantino--my neighbor is the projectionist. (I know, bordering on Chatfilter.)
