Disappointed this didn't capture the defining memory of my and everybody's eighth-grade experience, the kid who shouted "Hace... fríoooooo!" at the start of every Spanish class. Otherwise it's a very effective cringe comedy, Bo Burnham occasionally overstepping (I'd like the scene by the fire better if it was cut neatly in half, Josh Hamilton doesn't need the dialogue's help to melt your heart) but mostly getting impressive performances and dynamic visuals (and music!) without reaching too hard for them. It's…
Not too memorable with a muted, one-note sense of humor (this is not a movie about a stand-up that makes me believe the person is a very good stand-up, even though the director and star later made a good stand-up special together), but sweet and well-observed in the spots that matter. It was very hard for me to not think about Girls the whole time when Girls's casting director clearly loved this, it could use some Dunham wit but it at least uses Gaby Hoffmann better, I was dying with envy at her hair.
