Storyline

For the past 40 years, a group of comedy writers and directors has gathered every other Wednesday for lunch - and other nourishment. The members and their meeting places have changed occasionally, but their friendship and humor persist. Lunch describes more than a single meal. At each, their perceptive comments are sharp and brilliant. But their meetings mean more to them than affable, professional companionship; rather, a need to keep wit and wisdom alive and well. These are the fabled guys that made America funny. This is the feature length documentary LUNCH, which follows an earlier (2007), experimental Short by the same title, but with other cast members. Written by Donna Kanter, Writer/Producer/Director

What a special treat to be part of this special lunch!
26 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

Lunch is a great documentary. It has famous Hollywood writers in one place sharing stories, from their personal life (like Arthur Marx talking about his relationship with his father Groucho Marx) to what was going through their head while writing those classic sitcoms (like MASH). These writers have lots of memories. I loved hearing them. It's nice to hear the story of how they formed this special lunch group. They each feel honored to be part of this lunch. I feel like it's a privilege for the rest of us to be part of it through this film. I love watching TV sitcoms and watching movies at home. If you are like me and are a fan of good TV and movies, you will enjoy watching this film.
