Very Funny Movie!
29 August 2012 | by dmcontiniSee all my reviews

We saw 'Searching for Sonny' at the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival in Dubuque, Iowa on April 21, 2012. It is a very funny movie with several terrific actors. I enjoyed watching these actors hilariously stumble from one crazy scene to the next. Their dialog and interaction with each other was wonderfully amusing. The actors did a great job working together attempting to make this story seem as real as possible. I loved every moment! The movie kept me on the edge of my seat with anticipation of what was going to happen next. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who want to have a good laugh. I am looking forward to adding it to my DVD collection.
