Fairhaven- Follow a group of whiny friends reconnect after the loose cannon of three returns for the funeral of his estranged father. A cast of characters who never lived up to their dreams come to shockingly obvious cathartic closures in a few short days, topped off with the numerous re-tellings of Mike Wallace’s interview with Tom Brady. Mentally draining and unsatisfying
Free Samples- A whiny, semi-alcoholic unknowingly receives life lessons while doling out free ice cream samples. There is no way this character would ever have friends, let alone would they be approached by their younger and older forms loaded with perfect advice. The film makers trot out Tippi Hedron in an attempt at credibility which backfires. Jessie Eisenberg also appears, doing nothing to make me care. Physically draining and painful
Revenge for Jolly!- The awkward, whiny son of Cripsin Glover’s clone goes on a killing spree trying to find the guy who killed his dog–when he should have just killed the people who he knew were after him for bungling a job. Doesn’t know how to ride the line between serious and absurd, it’s more a showcase to prop up all the pointless cameos as they are killed off in Police Squad fashion. With a good ten minutes devoted to watching the two protagonists getting drunk and eat Mexican food, your time would be better spent, getting drunk and eating Mexican food. Unfunny and pointless.
Struck by Lightning-A whiny, know-it-all teen recants his sad story from the grave after he is struck by lightning. A film filled with characters you loathe, my already morose mind exploded when the supposedly genius lead claimed Columbus set out to discover America. Another– angry teen learns their lesson too late comedy with no soul and a laundry list of clichés (pun intended) bore-fest. It gets a small amount of points for its Ken Marino cameo, next to that, it falls flat. Angering and not worth the time.
