Okay, here’s your motivation. You’re lost, you’re angry in the woods, and no one is here to help you. There’s a witch and she keeps leaving shit outside your door. There’s no one here to help you! She left little trinkets, you took one of them, she ran after us. There’s no one here to help you! We walked for 15 hours today, we ended up in the same place! There’s no one here to help you, that’s your motivation!

Coffee Town (2013)

Written and Directed by Brad Copeland

Starring Glenn Howerton, Ben Schwartz, and Steve Little

Breezed by in a mere 87 minutes and had me laughing out loud several times. Sure, I guess there’s a loose plot, but this is really more of a film based on conversational humor. The dialogue is pretty realistic and I could easily see my friends and I talking in the same manner. Most of the scenes play like little vignettes up until the climax. Also, it was good to see Glenn Howerton playing a decent human being and a non-sociopath.

Ben Schwartz did his usual thing (which isn’t a bad thing at all) and Steve Little was hilarious. I was surprised to see Josh Groban in a comedy film, or any film at all really, and even though his role was a bit small he had a couple of the funniest parts. I guess he’s supposed to appear in an episode of Sunny this season. Honestly, I’d much rather see him act than listen to his music.

We’re in a sort of a golden era of comedy right now, seeing all these talented writer/performers collaborating on varied projects and this is a nice little slice of entertainment for anyone who’s a fan of Sunny, College Humor, etc. Apparently the writer/director of this film, Brad Copeland wrote Wild Hogs which is funny in itself because this is a movie I’d recommend to people…Without irony, I mean.

Tell me.. at what precise moment..does an individual stop being who he thinks he is? Cut off my arm. I say, “Me and my arm.” You cut off my other arm. I say, “Me and my two arms.” You…take out…take out my stomach, my kidneys, assuming that were possible… And I say, “Me and my intestines.” Follow me? And now, if you cut off my head, would I say “Me and my head.” or “Me and my body”? What right has my head to call itself me? What right?
