A comedy that is contemporary for our time when a down trodden used car salesman misuses the Internet in order to find the woman of his dreams.
The beginning starts a little slow, but quickly builds up to a laugh riot with lots of gags and quick witted one liners.
Tied in Knots hits on all 8 cylinders in driving home these times of the Information Super Highway madness. In an attempt to find the woman of his dreams, Saravan (Jamison Yang), goes a little too far in trying to impress a young woman he meets on a social network site by building himself up bigger than he really is. When the time comes for them to meet, he gets his buddies (a collection of misfit friends) to help him steal a mansion for the few days. The situation quickly becomes more befuddled when his Internet date shows up with her mother. Saravan winds up falling for the mother but continues to spin more tall tales, digging himself deeper and deeper. His lies start to compound on top of each other so quickly it would make a priest kick out a stain glass window. Of course, in the end, it all spirals out of control.
Jamison Yang (Bruce Almighty, Million Dollar Baby) delivers a stellar performance as the character of Saravan.
Greg Utt (who plays Peter), blends his boyish good looks and innocent honesty to move the story forward to its climatic ending.
Gary Stretch (Alexander, The Heavy), is hilarious as the unsuspecting real estate agent caught up in Saravan's deception like a fly in a spider's web.
Sara Lane (Belly of the Beast), plays Kate, the young woman Saravan meets on the Internet. Not only is Sara a beautiful woman, her performance as Kate brings realism to the movie that, without her, may not have existed.
