Storyline

'Lawrence & Holloman' is the dark and twisted story of a cynical and suicidal accounting clerk (Holloman) who gets taken under the wing of a happy-go-lucky, ever-optimistic suit salesman (Lawrence). Lawrence the optimist tries to teach Holloman the pessimist how to live happily and remain positive, until his own good luck starts to turn... Lawrence's fiance dumps him, his car is demolished, his dog goes missing, he loses his job, and his apartment is burned to the ground... and that's just the beginning! Is happiness determined by our outlook on life? Or can our destiny be changed... by another. Based on the hysterical and highly successful stage play by two-time Governor General Award-winning writer Morris Panych. Written by Anonymous

Painfully funny! I do mean hysterical. I do mean Ouch. "Lawrence & Holloman" is adapted from the stage-play of the same name, written by award winning playwright and theatre director, Morris Panich. The best written scripts often come from the theatre, and this film is no exception. The performances are superlative. The direction is inventive, and the film is highly entertaining from beginning to end. Among it's many awards, "Lawrence & Holloman," was the winner of "Best Feature" at the 15th annual Canadian Comedy Awards. Notably (deservedly), Ben Cotton (Lawrence) won the award for "Best Comedic Acting," at the Buffalo Niagara Film Festival. "Lawrence & Holloman" is without a doubt one of the most unusual Buddy Movies ever made! Not to be missed. Comedy never hurt so good!
