HITS is a dark comedy exploring the nature of fame in 21st Century YouTube America. The film takes place in a small town in upstate New York populated by people who trade in unrealistic expectations. Its a story in which fame, delusion, earnestness, and recklessness meet, shake hands, and disrupt the lives around them. Written by
It's one big joke not worth waiting for the punch line.
Maybe the movie would have been better if David Cross was actually in it, instead being behind the scenes as writer director.
The Mr. Show star turns what feels like a few sketches into one big movie about a girl trying to be a star in this era of Reality TV shows like Teen mom which the protagonist is obsessed with and social media, while her dad is getting the attention she thinks she deserves when his complaints about a pot hole in his street goes viral and all the hipsters from Brooklyn come out to help him.
The movie was not funny, although I'm in complete agreement with the joke, it did not make me laugh one bit sorry to say.
It was cool that David Cross got all his friends like Micheal Cera to take small roles adding to the feel of it being a bunch of sketches.
Overall, I got no real satisfaction on his parody of today's version of fame
