THEY’RE OUT OF BUSINESS

SYNOPSIS

A decade and a half after their seminal indie film launched meteoric filmmaking careers, Splick and Jason find themselves staring at their own individual lives

JOY’S REVIEW

They’re Out of the Business looks at two hapless guys, one of whom just got a relationship canceled and the other who got his television series canceled. It turns out, years ago, that they had done a bromance movie together, which most people remembered, but they did not part amicably. And this is the story of what happens 10 years later, and how they get together.

This is a hard movie to review, because while the characters are vaguely appealing, in an independent movie kind of way, the language is fierce. There are some seriously nasty words in here, including most of the four letters that most of us avoid. There are two scenes that take place on a porn set, so we have got serious bosoms. But it basically, at heart, is the story of two guys who certainly can make better with each other than they can any place else.

I give it three stars, but if they cleaned up the language a bit, I think it would have had a much broader appeal.
