Simple and funny comedy
19 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

How to be a man, with Gavin McInnes is a simple comedy. Funny simple.

McInnes plays himself as Mark McCarthy and it shows. He is a former comedian who thinks he is dying, so he wants to leave his unborn son with a few life-lessons. We follow McInnes and the cameraman Bryan, played by Liam Aiken, as they go through various experiences that are supposed to teach McCarthy's son what to expect of life.

I saw this film without any expectations, not having seen or heard of it before. I have seen McInnes personality in some work, so I knew what to expect of him. That was to my advantage.

If you have seen some of his work, and didn't like it, chances are that you will not like this film. It carries a lot on him, and to be honest, few other actors could have made this film tolerable. The cast is excellent, and Aiken does a very good job as supporting actor.

The reason why it didn't get a better rating from me is while it was a very entertaining movie, the plot was simple and I doubt it will stick with me. Not necessarily a bad thing, I think I could watch this several times more.

Worth watching, IF you like Gavin McInnes.
