Plot: Two life-long friends struggle through relationship and trust issues
Clint Says: Watch this as soon as you can
If you like quirky, awkward, and funny, this is the perfect movie for you. It is a fantastic and hilarious look into the relationship between two lifelong friends.
This is a film that is the exception to the, (my), rule that the same person should not write, direct, and star in the same film, because there is nobody to tell them "no", and the story gets lost. Well, in this case they did a masterful job of staying on track and telling the story in the most effective and compelling way.
The two leads have great chemistry and their banter and pacing are great. Their stories will make you laugh, empathize, and cringe. They feel like real people that could actually be in your life.
There is no simple label for this movie. "Bromance" doesn't quite fit, "best frenemies" may be a little closer, but it still doesn't tell the whole story. This is a unique and wonderful film that will give you a lot of much-needed laughs.
