Wonderfully dark and twisted...
20 December 2015 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

This movie was a wonderful surprise, and the dark, twisted comedy used here was just phenomenal. If you like offbeat comedies, then "Revenge for Jolly!" is definitely one to watch.

The story is quite simple, but still very entertaining given the situations and the colorful characters. The story is about Harry coming home to find his beloved dog Jolly dead, and then Harry sets out to find the one who killed his dog.

It is the outrageous characters in particular that really adds flavor to this movie. And there were some great talents on the cast list and some familiar faces here and there, which was quite nice.

While this is a comedy, it is not a movie with comedy that will make you laugh yourself crazy. However, the comedy here is so bizarre and outrageous that it just works out quite nicely. I enjoyed this oddball comedy and was rather entertained by it, and I am glad that I took the time to sit down and watch "Revenge for Jolly!".
