Sol Goode, a charismatic L.A. twenty-something, has always relied on charm, good looks, and fast talk to glide through life. But his luck may have run out; faced with eviction from his hipster apartment, totaling his car, and the threat of having to find a real job, Sol realizes that maybe the life he's been leading is no longer making him happy. Through this self-examination, he finds that being a womanizing hustler is an unfulfilling life and he will truly be happy with his best friend Chloe, who, unfortunately, knows him all too well. The result is a wickedly funny, heart-felt story as Sol tries to win her over. Written by
Intelligent, well-cast, and compelling from beginning to end.
If you're in the mood to laugh hysterically and be wildly entertained, SOL GOODE is the movie for you. Danny Comden's directorial debut is more than just a series of comic riffs on Los Angeles wannabes. What sets it apart is its sharply crafted humor, highly-original characters and clever fresh dialogue. Comden manages to tell a poignant love story without sentimentality by simultaneously exploring the trials and tribulations of a funny group of poseurs trying to make it happen in Hollywood. The enthusiastic, uninhibited cast brings Comden's writing to life! Tori Spelling and Carmen Electra have never been so funny!
