So great!
11 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are more funny twists in this thing than there are in most feature-length comedy films. And the feel is very authentic, both authentic Brooklyn and authentic dinner party, somehow without any artificial cues. It goes without saying that the premise is very clever, and the back story is very intelligently illustrated.

This film is also well acted; each of the characters puts forth a nuanced performance. Amazing that the whole production can be so expressive in such a short period of time! But the real star of this film is the witty writing and direction. It's such a quirky take on a social setting we all have ample experience navigating, but then walks the viewer through in a delightfully spontaneous way.
