Directed by Matt Ratner (USA, 2019, 91 min.).
Life is not going according to plan for Scott (Ben Schwartz, Parks and Recreation). He’s struck out as a stand-up comedian in LA and moved back into his childhood bedroom in Long Island. Filled with self-doubt and dreading the idea of a soul-crushing “real” job, he finds an unexpected connection with Marty (Billy Crystal), a local dermatologist and charming barfly with a penchant for karaoke. As their friendship deepens, Scott discovers that Marty’s larger-than-life personality masks disappointments of his own. But with humor and emotional resonance, the unlikely friends begin to find strength to confront regrets and build something new.
