Brendan Ehrlick, star of TV's popular cop series "Hard Justice," would like to come out of the closet to his parents. His first step? Come out to his best friend Cory in Florida and solicit his help. Cory already knows he's gay but comes to L.A. anyway, where his actions, rather than help Brendan, put him in awkward, possibly career-threatening situations. As corporate managers advise Brendan to remain uninformative in dealing with paparazzi, Cory ventures off into a one-night-stand with Emily, a lesbian on the rebound from a toxic relationship. He falls for her, but being with him confuses her life-long lesbian identity. Her struggles with this prompt Cory towards suddenly becoming a better friend to Brendan, leading to an immediate abduction followed by a violent, sword-wielding confrontation at the "Hard Justice" cast party.

Like a bad 'Chasing Amy'
14 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

Max Landis clearly had an idea that is presented well at some moments but completely missed at others. While it's far from bad, it's also just as far from good. The performances are spot on, Haley Osment feels like Michael Cera in 'This Is The End'. The general plot does give a borderline 'Chasing Amy' feel, but Max does manage to bring a much more surreal and intimate take on it. As I said, this works well in some scenes more than others. Not a perfect film, but exactly what I was expecting from such a creative and surreal writer. The indie atmosphere is certainly an acquired taste, but if you have a certain appreciation for the film industry, then you won't feel like you're wasting time watching this film.
