Outrageous Comedy/Mystery
16 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Searching for Sonny is a roller coaster of mystery and laughs. Done in mock film noir style, it has enough twists to make any corkscrew jealous. The hijinks start when Elliot Knight (Jason Dohring) gets a strange invitation to a high school reunion that blossoms into a full blown murder mystery. This sets a hapless group of friends on a quest filled with misadventures as they follow is an endless variety of twists that keep everyone guessing. The film relies heavily on the comedic talents of Brian McElhaney and Nick Kocher so this is a must see for BriTANick fans. And if you haven't heard of BriTANick, Searching for Sonny is a great introduction. So when you want to break out the popcorn and just have some fun, Searching for Sonny is a great choice.
