    This thing got middling reviews, but… man, I loved it. It ticks all the really specific boxes I have for "movie I'm gonna love forever and not care what you say" (dark comedy/dramedy based on a true story with obvious exaggerations, usually with a slightly-unreliable-narrator, with a sympathetic-but-not-necessarily-likable protagonist, usually telling a behind-the-scenes story or a slice-of-life, probably featuring comedic actors in semi-dramatic roles and occasional moments of surrealism; a sour, cynical core with a tiny dash of uncomplicated sentimentality. In other words: 24 Hour Party People, Nixon, A Christmas Story, The Social Network, Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind, and this thing.)

    I have a feeling that Doug Kenney was not the easiest or nicest person to be around. For that matter, I also expect Mark Twain was difficult to be around. It is a simple truth that supremely talented people, ESPECIALLY those who make us laugh, often are NOT nice or easy. But laughing at how ridiculous is the human experience is crucial to our survival, so thank you Doug, wherever you are (if, in fact, you are anywhere).

    I really feel for Chavy Chase and the story when he lost his great friend doug Kenney on Hawaii. A association more about his real human nature than just the bad things that are talkad about him

    The crazy thing (I saw this movie a year ago and I'm only 22) was that I had never heard of Doug Kenny before this, so assumed the dude playing him was actually him so I was shocked when he committed suicide.
