The most inspired independent comedy since Clerks.
Hacks is not tame by any stretch of the imagination, nor is it safe. It is sick, twisted, obscene, disturbing, and brilliantly funny. It manages to take the worst group of stand-up comedians (a group even worse then what you find on basic cable) as they `take their first step to showbiz mortality'. The movie is full of so many incredible lines that still continue to be funny months after having seen the film. In typical-lame-Hollywood-stereo-type-pitch terms, it is Waiting for Guffman raped by Spinal Tap while being exploited by Drop Dead Gorgeous. It is easily the funniest movie to hit the film festival market in years. It will survive in a Cineplex so pray that you can find a copy or it makes it into a film festival near you. If there was ever a movie that needed desperately to find an independent distributor to open up its market it is this.
