Hilarious, on point and unexpectedly touching
28 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

Coy and crass, witty and maybe a little wise - Growing up and other lies, lies somewhere between a bromantic comedy and a wise-cracking road trip movie, only the road is simply a trek through Manhattan accompanied by a diverse cast who make you wonder why they aren't all house-hold names (perhaps Adam Brody is?) This movie has one of the best kisses you'll see on screen - Josh Lawson being effortlessly brilliant, the writer/directors Danny Jacobs (lead) and Darren Grodsky (supporting) who are hilarious and enviably talented, Wyatt Cenac (of Daily Show fame) as the kind of dick you want as your best friend and Adam Brody, who is incredibly charming and talented and should be considered for less obvious casting choices. Amber Tamblyn is…incredible as well as the girl you just can't forget - as she no doubt will be for her performance. Oh, and there's also my favorite Jake Bugg song as part of the soundtrack. See it in the theaters if you can! It's beautifully shot!
