Storyline

THE DRY SPELL is an offbeat comedy depicting the deterioration of mental health in the absence of sex. With its unique style, THE DRY SPELL provides a penetrating look into the disturbed psyche of a man alone. The story chronicles the comic missteps of the irreverent Josey Fargo as he desperately seeks a new mate. It's been nearly two years since this dry spell began, and the urgency to find new love is boiling over. Josey's self-confidence is at an all-time low. Having very little to offer, Josey must try harder than other men. And try he does. THE DRY SPELL is a multi-layered comedy that fearlessly delves into some thorny issues, such as the fragility of self-confidence and the fear of growing old alone. Written by Anon

perhaps the funniest movie about the single life ever!
15 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

This is just a hilarious, completely original movie. This is what indie movies are all about--a structure that takes risks, supporting a subject that is brutally, hilariously honest. This is a very human, funny, cool movie. Required viewing for single people, especially single people who feel like they're too old to still be single. Excellent performances all around, with Chip Godwin as a standout. I wouldn't be surprised if he is on the cusp of stardom. This is one of those movies that stays with you. You watch it--think it's really good-- then you find yourself thinking about it, quoting it, laughing about it, for weeks afterward. You don't notice how much depth the movie has upon a first viewing, but as your mind comes back to it again and again in weeks to come, you gotta give it credit--the movie is funny, but it's also deep, and it's got something important to say.
