I loved this movie. Wyatt Cenac has a natural charm and the story, combined with good acting all around, reminds me of the original "Out of Towners" Much like Jack Lemmon's character, Cenac's David eventually and hysterically works himself into a frenzy due to an unfortunate and somewhat ...Read more

Fun, quirky movie with many actors who have also been on HBO's, "High Maintenance". This movie shares a similar funny and absurd point of view.

Cute & simple feel-good weekend movie. Light. Good for just taking a break from everything. Comical "what is going on?" moments.

Rewarding way to spend some screen time. Cathartic for all of us NY artists who feel awkward while schmoozing. Sweet characters well acted.
