Writer/director Janicza Bravo and writer/actor Brett Gelman are married in real life. When the movie premiered, their families - that are portrayed quite dysfunctional in the movie - hadn't seen the film yet. See more »
Watching this movie is like listening to someone drag their nails across a chalkboard. I'm confident that worse movies have been made made but something about this film was so offensive to my senses that withing the first half hour it registered deep within my psyche as THE WORST movie I've seen. It was stilted & disjointed with lifeless performances (I assume by direction) of detestable character. Everything about this movie screamed out the pretentiousness of the film maker. It plays like Janicza Bravo decided to make an inspired film, put all the wheels in motion and then set out to find the inspiration. I've read positive reviews that tacitly accused me of failing to appreciate the dark, deadpan, absurdist humor. My response to those reviewers is to go see 'The Lobster'. 'The Lobster' was a dark, deadpan, absurdist comedy that was inspired and expertly executed. Lemon was, to use a colloquial pun, a lemon.
