Storyline

'Lawrence & Holloman' is the dark and twisted story of a cynical and suicidal accounting clerk (Holloman) who gets taken under the wing of a happy-go-lucky, ever-optimistic suit salesman (Lawrence). Lawrence the optimist tries to teach Holloman the pessimist how to live happily and remain positive, until his own good luck starts to turn... Lawrence's fiance dumps him, his car is demolished, his dog goes missing, he loses his job, and his apartment is burned to the ground... and that's just the beginning! Is happiness determined by our outlook on life? Or can our destiny be changed... by another. Based on the hysterical and highly successful stage play by two-time Governor General Award-winning writer Morris Panych. Written by Anonymous

I laughed until my sides hurt!
1 August 2015 | by stonelover1See all my reviews

I stumbled upon this film after looking for the name of a different movie Ben Cotton was in. I ordered a copy direct from the Lawrence and Holloman website. I must say it is the best money I have ever spent on a DVD. I ended up watching it two days in a row and laughed more the second time! The script is well written, the film beautifully shot, and the casting could not have been any more perfect. Daniel Arnold (Holloman) and Ben Cotton(Lawrence) have a chemistry that can't be beat. Throw in the beautiful Amy Matysio (Jill) and the spectacular Katharine Isabelle (Zooey) and you have a winner! The movie is full of one liners that beg to be repeated in everyday life. I recommend this movie to anyone who needs reminded to be positive and life isn't nearly as bad as it seems. Or is it?
