Quotes

Bruce Madsen: You want me to warm up your audience?
Jack Taylor: Of course, I'd be honored. Audience warm-up guys make a lot of money, Bruce.
Bruce Madsen: You want me to be your fluffer, Jack? That's fucking humiliating! I can't believe this is how you look at me.
Jack Taylor: I don't look at you that way, Bruce, that's how the business looks at you.
Bruce Madsen: Then fuck the business.
Jack Taylor: I don't get you man. You think this business is like a "Punt, Pass, and Kick" competition where all that matters is being funnier than everybody else.
Bruce Madsen: Isn't that what it's ...

Lethargic Acting, Hackneyed Premises
9 March 2015 | by M_ExchangeSee all my reviews

A few people have written outstanding critiques about this film. As far as Adam's acting, he seemed as if he wasn't even in the moment of what was happening. He seemed as if he was distracted and/or exhausted possibly due to his other projects. I know that his character is actually tired of everything in his life anyway, but Adam delivered everything in the same monotone manner even when his character's life was improving.

Also, when I was in film school I received outstanding advice: never let a low budget movie LOOK like it's low budget. I never felt as if I was watching a well-produced feature film.

It's just a below average effort to me. I like some its messages such as the pull of L.A. versus a more "normal" lifestyle, which I'm experiencing myself now anyway. But I laughed at this thing only once, and I wasn't in it for the drama.
