Not What I Expected

In reading about this film I was left with the impression that it was a comedy and expected to enjoy a light hearted approach to an unusual scenario. Instead it was an excellent exploration of men and their relationships with other men. Mark Duplass and Joshua Lenor were excellent at expressing what every guy deals with during the course of his life. How do straight men deal with the love that they feel for those men they get close to. Ms. Delmore was the perfect foil and obviously has a very bright future acting in film or on the stage. Her reaction after being inadverttently informed about the two guys plan was brilliant! Well worth the price of admission!
Yes, I recommend this movie.

I think humpday may be one of the most honest movies I've ever seen. The dialog is straight out of real life. I also think it may be the best movie about Seattle ever made. Really captures the nature of this town...
Yes, I recommend this movie.

I laughed and pitied the fools at the same time. Very entertsining concept very well executed. I have not been to Seattle for a while, but without showing a landmark I could feel its hip and un-ironed edge everywhere. Great shooting. And I want to see the prequel where Lynn Shelton and Trina Willard develop those Dionysian nymphs. ithere's a story there, and I am sure it is HOT.
Yes, I recommend this movie.

Thoughtful, Provocative, and Funny

This movie was the best film I've seen this year. While the subject matter lends itself to a slapstick approach, Lynn Shelton instead offers up a cerebral and witty alternative that keeps you engaged and feeling as if you are part of the action. Her innovative approach to documentary fiction could set the new standard for independent filmmakers. I have urged everyone I know to see this film.
Yes, I recommend this movie.

Humpday was the best movie I've seen in a long time. The actors and humor pulled me in from the first scene, and for a change, I actually cared about the characters.
The entire audience laughed genuinely throughout the movie, because the humor was smart and real.
How do people deal with things that make them uncomfortable? Especially things they are uncomfortable feeling uncomfortable about? How do we lie to the people around us, and to ourselves, to maintain our sense of who we want to be?
Humpday explores these questions and more intelligently, honestly, and with great humor.
Yes, I recommend this movie.

An Indie Gem

I didn't know what exactly to expect. I had a vague concept of the plot and wasn't exactly excited to be seeing this, but from the opening scene I was hooked. The dialogue felt real. The plot - ridiculous, but painted so naturally - was challenging, thought-provoking, and cringe-worthy (in a good way!). So many small moments made me laugh hard. This is certainly a different kind of movie, perhaps paced a little slowly, but this pacing only reflects the way conversations truly take place outside of movies. Highly recommend.
Yes, I recommend this movie.
