Storyline

Larry (Jason Schwartzman) is content with his dog Arrow and booze, barely tolerating anything or anyone else. His marginally successful relationships include his grandmother, who keeps him afloat financially, and his best friend Norwood, who provides him with pharmaceuticals. But a chance encounter at a Jiffy Lube gives Larry a beguiling new boss and the impetus to head in another direction for a while. This movie showcases all that may be needed to help a person get unstuck in life: love (or an unrequited crush), friendship (or someone your family likes better than you) and family (or in this case a grandmother who will support you whenever you get fired from a job).

Good but not great --
11 February 2019 | by areview4uSee all my reviews

This was a decent movie. I really liked the relationship between Larry and Major. It got me thinking. At a point, most would probably want to kill Major despite their past. Yet, Larry remains calm and gets a great offer in return. It was basically a peoples connection dramedy. Sure, Larry had a bunch of dumb, deadpan jokes, but that was the point. He did make me laugh a few times, so points there for sure. It gets slower at parts, though. It seems like it's dragging for play time sometimes. Points coming very slowly, almost to unnoticeable changes with certain story branches. Docked a bit for that. It was tempting to check the timeline on Netflix at some points.

Overall, you might want to check this out if you are into movies with underdogs. It's filmed well, which is a major plus. It's clever with the drama, has a lot of stupid humor and a drug addict as the main character. My only major complaint was I just wish there was a little more information around the ending.

6.4/10
