Don't Think Twice- Movie Review

Don't Think Twice (R) 92 mins B+
Hope and Change and Comedy

Starring: Gillian Jacobs, Kate Micucci, Maggie Kemper, Mike Birbiglia, Keegan-Michael Key, Chris Gethard, Tami Sagher, Richard Masur, Seth Barrish and Adam Pally

Don't Think Twice was not as funny as I hoped. But, it is a well-crafted humanistic film that is both entertaining and affecting. The film follows six members of a New York improvisational troupe. A tight knit group of friends honing their skills and striving toward the same goal- to earn a spot on the popular comedy show Weekend Live (a fictional Saturday Night Live). However, when one member gets his lucky break it changes the group dynamic. It motivates the remaining five members in various ways. The triangle of success, jealousy and friendship is well-charted territory in film. Nevertheless, writer-director Mike Birbiglia makes this film stand out because his characters are believable. They are characters you'll care about, laugh with and maybe even shed a tear for.
