Hilarious!!!
29 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw Dinner With Raphael at the San Diego Film Festival this year and it rocked my f**king world!!! I had to watch it later that night online, because the audience was laughing so hard - couldn't hear all the dialogue! Bravo to the writer/director for taking a chance and raising the comedy bar. And bravo to the outstanding cast as well. Freakin' Donkey Lips as the crazy brother??? Brilliant! Dianna Agron from Glee, was so cute and perfect. Paul Boukadakis was hilarious as the uptight brother...not too bad on the eyes either :) Along with Richard Riehle - who is just amazing in everything - as the drunken father, and Brett Paisle as the naive mom, it's not hard to see why this short is cleaning up at festivals. Can't wait to see what's next from these guys!
