If you missed our movie’s premiere NYC screenings, guess what? You have one more chance to see it live, in the theatre, and laugh your head off with a bunch of other comedy fans. And believe me, laugh you will! I have been to the previous screenings, and laughing is what audiences do when they see this peach of a movie.
But you don’t have to take my Check out what extremely nice guy Dan Gurewitch said about the movie:
It takes a clever hook (the members of a comedy group each write 15 pages of a feature film, only privy to the previous writer’s last 5 pages, and the movie intercuts between the resulting hodgepodge film and interviews with the writers), and spins it into a hilarious, touching look at the trials and tribulations of friendship, creativity and collaboration. It’s funny on a ton of levels, from immediate to super-meta.
But more than that, it perfectly and genuinely explores the process of working creatively with friends when you’re young and your intense passion is rivaled only by your relative inexperience. It made me nostalgic for the years I spent in my college improv group, bonding with best friends and engaging in hyper-opinionated disagreements without a clear leader or direction, but with boundless enthusiasm.
It’s a real feat of creative editing, charming and engaging. You’ll love it, especially if you’ve ever made stuff with friends. Congrats to everyone involved, and everyone else, do yourself a favor and check it out.
