| Excellent Dark Comedy
A Bit of Bad Luck is a dark comedy that takes you on a ride through a man's coming to an (not intentional) understanding of his selfish ways. I thoroughly enjoyed it and laughed out loud at several places. One of my favorite scenes was when the protagonist ends up in jail and the prisoner in the cell next to his has a complete bedroom set with a comfy bed, table lamp and bedside table. He has no lock on his cell door and has been there for two and a half years. Not only has he never had a trial, he wasn't even expecting one. No explanation needed. The lead character, Brooks, played by Cary Elwes was excellent. You felt his panic as he was being surrounded and hunted by a town of violent red necks with no escape. The music was fun and in a few places told the narrative. The cinematography was excellent. I am from the Pacific Northwest and I loved seeing familiar places. A funny horror movie filmed in broad daylight. I recommend this movie to adults who want a great movie with a healthy dose of dark humor.
