Great humor and thought provoking
18 November 2019 | by richpm-1See all my reviews

I saw the Standing Up, Falling Down at the Napa Valley Film Festival, where it won the top award for best feature film.

The movie shows the power of great writing in a screenplay and I expect to watch it a second or third time to fully get what the movie provides - something I rarely do with a movie.

The humor fits what's happening in the story, without being forced.

The story's message is an important piece of advice that most people could benefit from.

I would place this movie as one of the best it not the best comedy I have seen in the past 5 years.
