Storyline

A Legacy of Whining not only throws gasoline on the familiar cinematic trope of male mid-life crisis but watches gleefully as it sits back and throws a lighted match onto the proceedings. Inspired by its love of early 1970's American buddy films, this shaggy dog comedy (played out in one desperation-soaked dreamlike evening) tells the tale of two former high school friends, Mitch and Dunc, who reunite thirty years later in an attempt to resurrect the faded corpse of their "glory years" only to find, perhaps, that the past ain't all it's cracked up to be... "A Legacy of Whining" is really funny!"- The Movie Waffler.com Written by Ross Munro

Indie Gem
13 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a nice indie gem. It's listed as a comedy, but don't expect a farce here. This story is deeper than that. It's interesting to see these characters meet up after thirty years for a high school reunion only to have found they have either changed a lot, or actually not much at all. The two main characters play off of each other well. There is some good exploration of "mid life crisis" in funny ways. Some of it kind of off beat or dark humor. But the movie has a sense of charm as well. There are a few scenes that seem like they go on a little bit longer than they should, but stick with it, it gets fun. It's definitely what one would describe as a "character driven" film. If you're into indie films, it's worth giving a try.
