Hilarious and heartfelt comedy!
27 September 2017 | by alannakouriSee all my reviews

As a self-proclaimed comedy movie aficionado, I really like what Joey Kern has created here. Big Bear is a movie that can appeal to more than just comedy lovers. This movie mixes slapstick humor with a touch of dark revenge and tops it off with real emotional struggles that most can relate to. But what made the movie, for me at least, was how well cast it was. Joey Kern, being the writer and director, seemed to be able to portray the heartbroken, emotionally torn male lead in a way that only the creator of the character could. Aside from Kern, it was interesting to see characters like Adam Brody and Pablo Schreiber in different roles than what may be considered their usual like in The O.C. or Orange Is The New Black. Brody seemed to not hold anything back, even getting slightly creepy, as a very James-Franco-type crazed best friend. Overall, this movie won me over and I would definitely recommend if you are looking for a laugh.
