Very funny Film
20 December 2016 | by EmergingTalentnySee all my reviews

The film is an excellent independent film with phenomenal actors. Erin Fogel and Guillermo Ivan really have put together a great film about the entertainment industry in New York City. The acting alone is amazing. Bronson Pinchot and Paul Calderon give fine performances as well. Without giving out too much the film portrays the comedic struggles that many entertainers go through for recognition. I saw this film earlier this year and it has done well on the festival circuit. You cannot help to fall in love with the lovely but misguided trio that make up the core of the film. I highly recommend this feel good comedy as a must see for everyone
