Dark, dark comedy based on true events
11 April 2013 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

Matt's Chance was a darkly fun comedic drama about the ultimate loser losing the ultimate girlfriend.

I had the pleasure of viewing it at the Canada Intl Film Festival in Vancouver and was so glad I did.

Edward Furlong's performance takes you immediately into the gloomy dreamscape of this Seattle based comedy drama.

The film was beautifully shot and the writing was excellent. The diverse cast mix of seasoned legendary actors and burgeoning new talent is a great treat.

Right when you feel bad for the protagonist he does something to immediately remind you why he's in the situation he's in. This film is dark and hilarious and guarantees both gasps and guffaws alike.

Oh and its got Gary Busey. The Busey was hysterically funny, my only wish was for more Busey!!
