|08.19.12||DVR|| A fun small film about a small-town naive insurance agent who goes to a convention in hopes of bringing back a coveted award. At the hotel he's roomed with The Wire's Isiah "Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeit" Washington and John C. "For Your Health" Riley.|
It's funny in a kind of smirky way. Not side-splitting or anything but nice character work. It also has an optimistic viewpoint which i appreciate. Riley's character is rude and rambunctious but he likes Ed Helm's character and isn't a negative force at all. I like these types of characters, who are brash and have issues but also make good friends and help their buddies. This could have been a much different movie but I liked how it remained light and upbeat while the actors and characters keep it from being too fakey and romantic comedy-ish.
Good movie. Way to go, Jarrette!
