Amusing and energetic thanks to manner of delivery
25 May 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A couple plot to change the content of their (still living and sitting in the corner) grandmother's will, writing themselves into it via a forgery and splitting it fairly between the two of them – 70/30. However someone also wants to get in on the action and is only going to complicate things and, of course, Grandma herself isn't too keen on any of their plans.

This simple sketch has a good energy and delivery to it which helps carry the fact that the material itself would not be as good without these facets. The opening credits sets the tone with nice design and humor to them, which snaps right into some fast dialogue which is funny and delivered with pace. This continues throughout the film as we jump around in time and perspective; we take turns across each of the 4 characters to see things from their first-person perspective and it is this device that adds to the comedy as it gives the material something additional not on the page. It is ultimately not as hilarious as it appears though and the ending is not quite as strong as I would have liked, but it does still work.

The performance from Kassin is probably the funniest but Christensen and Drayer are good while Lacy perhaps does not have too much to do. Napier's direction is what makes the film snap nicely as the camera perspective device is one of the main selling points and does aid the material to feel better than it is. Amusing and energetic; worth a look.
