Storyline

A portrait of young New York and the misguided hopefuls who can't afford to live there but do anyway, Gabi on the Roof in July is an ensemble comedy about ex-girlfriends, sibling rivalry and whipped cream in a city that's constantly in flux. Gabi, a rambunctious Oberlin undergrad, heads to New York City to spend the summer with her older brother, Sam, seeking solidarity in the wake of her parents' divorce. When she gets there, she finds Sam too busy juggling women and too irked by her provocative antics and almost constant nudity to give her the guidance she needs. In an effort to get Sam's attention, Gabi seduces his free-loving, freeloading college buddy, only to find she's in over her head. Written by Anonymous

Funniest film
3 October 2010 | by (Maryland, United States) – See all my reviews

I caught the screening for this film at the Chesapeake Film Festival in Easton, Maryland. It was about a 20 year old girl, Gabi, who goes to visit her brother on summer break. She is free-spirited and loves flashing her brother Sam to make him uncomfortable. Both her and Sam get into love complications that shake things up.

I am a 26 year old lady and found this movie hilarious. It had me loudly laughing through the entire film. Even though the characters are right around my age, I think many people could relate to the breaking down of innocence as we come of age. We were all idiots who made stupid mistakes.

This movie was vulgar with lots of nudity and sex humor - so if you can handle that, it is fantastic. It made me reflect on all the horrible Hollywood romantic comedies I've wasted my time watching - like Marley and Me or Couples Retreat. This film was real people being themselves, the naked truth. If you have the chance, I highly recommend this film. Watch it through Gabi's eyes, free and joyful.
