I've been a big fan of HH for about 10 years and this is one of his most accessable films.
After 15-ish years Josh Hutton (Robert Burke) comes back to his home town to confront old demons, supposedly he killed a few people. Instead he finds Audrey (Adrienne Shelly), a teenaged girl who thinks the world is on brink of nuclear destruction.
As you may have noticed this is not the usual type of so-called romantic comedy, but in a weird quirky way that's what this film is.
HH's dialogue is a treasure trove of brilliant one-liners (almost every line that Audrey's father speaks) and the scene between Josh and Edie Falco where the same lines are repeated over and over is nothing short of greatness.
However, the film's budget might put some people off - I heard it was 75, 000 dollars.
If you are after a quirky film that will make you feel good (minus Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan) give The Unbelievable Truth a spin.
The Unbelievable Truth: 5/5
