A quiet, understated, and lovely film
28 February 2013 | by kuttercallawaySee all my reviews

In general, I am a fan of Tony Hale. But in Not That Funny, Hale allows audiences to catch a glimpse of the sincerity that often resides just under the surface of his more comedic offerings. Of course, much of the credit goes here to the film's writers and director. The film has just the right amount of quirkiness, which allows it to remain a romantic comedy without succumbing to tired conventions. In other words, it represents everything I love about independent film done well. Without any hint of condescension or pretension, Not That Funny offers an unassuming and quietly subversive take on love, relationships, and life. Definitely worth seeing.
