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. 

“Knockout performances from Schwartz and Crystal.” —Slash Film
