What a night
20 May 2017 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

You are either with the director or you aren't. But if you like fast paced comedy that takes no prisoners, than you are at the right place (no pun intended). This is a comedy that takes you through a whole bunch of emotions and it succeeds on every level. It's funny, it has suspense, there is mystery and there is adult themes running through the whole thing for everyone to enjoy.

The acting is spot on (again no pun intended) and for a one location shoot, his goes places other movies would not dare to take you. The director also takes his wife through the wringer. The wonderful Carmella Bang is wonderful as always, but her character is not as lovable. Which is something that can be said about most of the people in this. It's show business after all ....
