A friend of mine became a big-shot Hollywood director. He put himself in his own movies. Big mistake. My oldest friend, Jack, teaching acting in the valley to people in refrigerator boxes. He said the idea came to him when he was locked in a public bathroom for a night. Me, I own a laundromat. My best friend has four legs and cataracts. I'd gone out to Los Angeles to change the world. And then we got hit smack in the face by something we hadn't seen coming. Fame.

Caught this movie on cable by accident, and I'M SO GLAD I DID! this adorable film is everything cult-classics are made of, and i'll never understand why more people didn't love it as much as i did. Yes, i know how to punctuate properly, but touchscreen keyboards are a total pain in the buttocks and i hate them. The acting was exemplary, the script and direction were fun, quirky and understatedly hilarious (i love deadpan humor, am i the ONLY one who does? Really? Okay. Sadface.). A special added bonus for Game Of Thrones fans; this is probably the first time peter dinklage and lena headey acted together, and IT IS WONDERFUL. My tastes aren't like everyone else's because most people are boring and dumb, but personally, i love this movie so much that whenever it comes on cable (which isn't nearly often enough), i take the day off work (i can do that because i'm cooler than you, ha ha) just to get drunk and watch it again. Gonna buy it as soon as i figure out how to make amazon show me the movies i own on a touch-tablet, i don't know why amazon won't give me my movie library on a new machine, does anyone else? Amazon can bite me, but if you want a fun buddy- movie that's not-quite-like the buddy movies you've seen before, or if you're an aspiring filmmaker, or if you love game of thrones, or if you're a human with a functioning brain, you should probably go ahead and give an hour of your life th check this movie out. I loved it.
