MOVIE REVIEW: GOOD PENIS

B. McGILLICUDDY



This movie is about a cute dude (Jason Ritter) and a kinda-not-so-hot girl (Marianna Palka) who like watching porn together. The guy seems to really like the girl, but the girl seems to not really like the guy. Every scene in this movie is kinda short and it gives off a very pervasive feeling of "indieness", especially since I've never heard of the chick who directed it (Marianna Palka), and the only actor I recognized was the guy with the beard from Knocked Up/Superbad (Martin Starr), which are also, but not-as-much-so "indie". The plot does not drag. The humor is very dark. There is a lot of mention of sex and a lot of tension of it too, but there is no "good dick" exposing that I can remember. This movie is really about coming to terms with the fact that people are attracted to each other for the 'right reasons' sometimes, and that it's not a 'bad thing" to fall in love/deal with your fear of "being hurt" when the "right person' comes along. Also, Tom Arnold is in this film at the end, and I was surprise/not surprised at how well he acted/what roll he played.
