  • Although a bit cliché, (what romantic comedy is not) this little indie has some classic jokes and strong characters. I really enjoyed the sardonic humor of the main character - Avi.

    I wish more films portrayed every day people like this more often, instead of shiny happy people who look like they came out of some fashion magazine.

    I think we will be seeing more of both the lead (Modi Rosenfeld) and the director (Michael Rainin) in years to come.

    Also, if you have the DVD, watch the bonus tracks, they are very, very funny.

    This film also gave a pretty realistic look on the stand up comedy scene in LA and New York City and I checked and most of the actors are stand up comedians in real life.
  • This film has an excellent storyline that moves inexorably from one high to another until everything comes crashing down only to rise up and reach another high. There is no fluff just great drama and comedy. Modi Rosenfeld is perfect as the New York Jewish comic, Avi, trying to make it big in Hollywood. Kathryn Fiore is darling as his love interest and Derek Hughes as John, Avi's old New York Buddy is the perfect counterpoint to Avi and his acting is truly remarkable. Godfrey is superb as Avi's comic mentor and his wife, Tamara 'Ginger' Curry is beautiful and heart wrenching as the toiling mom behind the comic. John Melendez puts in a funny cameo as does Marlo Williams who is hysterically funny. This is a funny sweet film that will make you feel good.
