Al Gore brings down the Sundance house

Al Gore brings down the Sundance house
PARK CITY, Utah, Jan. 26 (UPI) -- One of the biggest stars and hottest tickets at the Sundance Film Festival this week was former Vice President Al Gore and "An Inconvenient Truth."

The bigger surprise at the annual Park City, Utah, celebrity gathering is "Truth" isn't a comedy, drama or even a dramedy -- it's a documentary about global warming, the Washington Post reported Thursday.

"Al is a funny guy," Larry David of HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm," told the Post as the buddies attended celebrity parties and mingled with fans.

But Gore's film carries a very unfunny message -- humans may have only 10 years left to save the planet from the mass destruction of global warming.

David's wife, Laurie, convinced Gore to make the film after watching one of his global warming presentations in 2004.

The slide show "was his baby, and he felt proprietary about it and it was hard for him to let go," she said. Now they are hopeful a distributor will pick up

David says the filmmakers are in discussion with three or four distributors, hoping for a sale.

"This isn't about box office," David said. "None of us are going to make a dime." What is at stake, she told the Post, "is, you know, the planet."
