Storyline

The worst thing about Wendell (Adam Bowers) isn't his slightly balding head, skinny frame, or thin lips; it's that he's a bit of an idiot. He just started dating Vicky (Jayme Ratzer), an angry drunk, who conveniently shares his lack of ambition and cleanliness. But he might prefer a relationship with Joanna (Valerie Jones) because she's a selfless social worker who doesn't have lip acne. Eventually, Wendell is going to have to decide who he really belongs with: the best girl he's ever known-or the worst. Written by TAMPjackoon

Seinfeldian Love Triangle
13 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

If your'e in the mood for an original indie romcom that's funny, I highly recommend New Low. Written and directed by Adam Bowers, who also stars as a lovelorn slacker, this no-budget, off-beat love story made official selection at Sundance. It was shot on location in Gainesville, a college town in northern Florida. It co-stars "youtube celebrity" Tobias and the ever lovely Jayme Ratzer. She's hot (holla!).

It's a string of one-liners woven around a plot. The plot is pretty creative. An underachiever has to choose between two women. One is a do-gooder who represents his potential to be a better person. The other one is a dumpster diver who represents who he thinks he really is. He has to decide who to be with and he has low self esteem.

New Low is romantic comedy for people who don't usually like romantic comedies, in other words, guys. Adam Bowers is distinguishing himself as a kind of WASPy Jerry Seinfeld. Tobuscus plays his wacky best friend. Every romantic comedy has to have one. The writing is fresh and the jokes fly fast, a la 30 Rock. People don't say hilarious things so frequently in real life and not stop to laugh at them, but it's a movie, go with it.

As Seinfeldian as this picture is, another reference comes to mind. I got shades of Kevin Smith. It's ironic, it's sweet, and most of all, it's funny. I look forward to catching Paperback, Bowers' latest. It was paid for at least in part with a Kickstarter campaign. The industry should be investing in Adam Bowers. Why they're not is still a mystery to me. So, if you happen to be in charge of development at a major studio, please check this guy out.
