For the past 40 years, a group of comedy writers and directors has gathered every other Wednesday for lunch - and other nourishment. The members and their meeting places have changed occasionally, but their friendship and humor persist. Lunch describes more than a single meal. At each, their perceptive comments are sharp and brilliant. But their meetings mean more to them than affable, professional companionship; rather, a need to keep wit and wisdom alive and well. These are the fabled guys that made America funny. This is the feature length documentary LUNCH, which follows an earlier (2007), experimental Short by the same title, but with other cast members.

I live for comedy. A good laugh gets me through the day and I love it how a funny guest can liven up any party. The documentary "Lunch" is like having a dinner party with some of the most lively, entertaining guests imaginable. "Lunch" follows a group of legendary comedy writers who meet for lunch every other week in Los Angeles. At easch lunch they discuss the old days, current events and what its like being old. Each subject is handles with wit and grace and each member is interviewed and their current situations are shared. The documentary breezes by and I was left wanting more. This documentary is a must for any fan of classic TV. You won;t regret it.
