Storyline

In Jacksonville, Florida, four friends since grade school who are now in their early 30s face the challenges of adulthood: Hutto is about to become a father, Laith is intimidated by his girlfriend's sexuality, a grieving Bobby drinks heavily and sleeps on the grave of a girlfriend who's been dead 18 months, and Mark, an OB/GYN who loves his work, can't practice medicine because he can't afford malpractice insurance. Things come to a head when Mark needs his three friends' help after a belligerent animal-abusing pornographer attacks Mark with a gun over something Laith did. A midnight road trip tests friendship: can the guys help each other? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Funny Dark Comedy!
29 March 2008 | by rbmelrose-1See all my reviews

Remember the last movie that produced a good belly laugh? Until last night, we couldn't, but Who's Your Monkey, a.k.a. Throwing Stars, had the theater cracking up! We are ready to see it again to catch any lines we may have missed while laughing during the movie. Not a big-budget movie but makes up for that in the writing and cast. Well done... Smart, Funny, Edgy, Dark Comedy! The soundtrack was surprising and fun, and added to the comedy of the film. The movie is very fast-paced and leaves you satisfied about what is in store for the characters' future. The cast had a really nice chemistry and you believed they had known each other for years. The new title and trailer give the idea that this is a silly, fluffy film, when in reality it has many layers, much depth, and great character development. If you see any Indie this year, this is the one!
