Patton Oswalt: I Love Everything is a complete stand-up from start to finish, leading to Patton’s hilarious existential crisis in Denny’s.

Netflix stand-up special Patton Oswalt: I Love Everything was released on the platform on May 19, 2020.

A lot of people say this — there’s this known idea that when a man turns 50, they suffer from a midlife crisis. Its part of the failed masculinity that the number 50 makes men realize they are not invincible — death will arrive one day and mortality does exist. It’s such a strange concept that the number 50 brings on the insecurity that makes you decide that suddenly you want to feel younger again — one minute you are walking around in your slippers drinking a nice warm coffee in the morning, the next minute you are waking up at 5 am, dressed in lycra and attempting a 30-mile bike ride. Patton Oswalt: I Love Everything sees our bubbly comedian take on that dreaded number in his own comedic fashion — and it’s a lot of fun.

Patton Oswalt doesn’t describe a midlife crisis but he does show the marked differences between 20, 30, and 40 to the dreaded half-century. I think it helps that the man found love again and embraced it, despite not wanting to love ever again. Patton Oswalt: I Love Everything voices the comedian’s hilarious interactions with his wife and how the silliest arguments can lead to the most thought-provoking moments.

Once Patton Oswalt rummages over turning 50, marriage and missing the premiere of Solo due to having to attend his daughter’s second-grade class, he veers on the side of caution when discussing Trump because of how pointless the subject matter is — people who hate him, hate him and people who like him are lost. He keeps it short and sweet, realizing that many comedians use it as part of their material.

Patton Oswalt: I Love Everything is a complete stand-up from start to finish, leading to Patton’s hilarious existential crisis in Denny’s. In the end, the comedian kindly asks you to hold on to watch his friend’s stand-up Bob Rudin: Oddities and Rarities that he’s kindly slotted into Netflix library.
