A comedy without comedy
3 November 2015 | by jrodwaySee all my reviews

It's hard to review a comedy that isn't funny.

I will confess to being a fan of Project Greenlight including the season that featured The Leisure Class. I actually wasn't sure what to expect from the movie and certainly there were some scenes that jumped out because of being a focus in the HBO series. It was familiar like watching a movie filmed in your hometown.

There are probably many technically correct elements about The Leisure Class that are good. I don't claim any film artistry. It doesn't have the feel of a lower budget movie which is to the movie's credit.

What's missing is humor. It's just not funny. Maybe it's the script, the story, the characters or something else but it just lacks.

Skip the movie, watch Project Greenlight and hope for better results next time. It has to work one of these days.
