Win Win (pre-screening)

Win Win

Woot to another pre-screening!  And double Woot to it being even better than I expected.  I'm not sure I've laughed that much in a theater in a little while.  If you like dry humor, newcomer to the screen, Alex Shaffer even gives co-star Gimatti a run for his money.  Along with this, Amy Ryan (Holly from the Office) gave a very down-to-earth and honest portrayal as well.

Since this movie wasn't advertised nearly as much as it should have been, here's a quick non-spoiler synopsis:

Mike Flaherty's attorney office has seen better days, with a water heater that's disturbing what peace there is between nearly no clients.  He coaches the high school wrestling team and stumbles into a little crooked business opportunity that ends up with some extra money, a star athlete living in his basement, and his team finally winning some meets.  Everything is looking up, but this is a movie, there will be a monkey wrench.

Anyway, I'd highly recommend this movie if you like a real-to-life drama that is also quite funny.

Run time  106 min + 4824 = 4930
