Plenty of laughs in this Hollywood satire
26 January 2017 | by paulbrightguySee all my reviews

LA TIMES is a very funny millennial movie about dating and marriage in the city of bright lights by writer/director/lead actor Michelle Morgan. She and her talented ensemble punch up a modern comedy with laugh-out-loud dialogue and situations while satirizing the facetiousness of Hollywood. A number of jokes about the entertainment industry kept the indie film guys in the row behind me at Sundance laughing throughout the movie. Lots of sexual situations and pot smoking so probably not a great movie for religious fundamentalists. Fortunately, none present in the audience to spoil the fun. A social comedy that examines the need for meaningful partnership in a world of fuzzy morality and superficial values. Good fun.
