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 really enjoyed this film. These men are creative geniuses and it was great to see them all in one place having a good time. Some of my favorites from these writers include: MASH, Different Strokes, The National Lampoon films. So it was great to hear them reminisce about those times. The film not only has footage from the restaurant conversations but also feature one on one interviews with each of the writers. Which I really liked a lot. The personal stories of how they came to be writers, to their stories of their family life. It was all very interesting. I recommend this film to anyone who loves classic TV and movies, it's also just interesting to see how these creative minds think.
