Funny AND insightful

This movie was way more somber and insightful than I ever expected it to be. It also happened to be way more brilliant than I could have hoped for. And I'm not just saying that as a newly 40 year old former improv-er, either. This was a film that could have focused on just celebrity, but also touched on community and creation. More importantly, it touched on relationship without ever trying too hard. I loved every minute.

Whose line is it anyway?

Don't Think Twice is a thoughtful film but not really a funny comedy of a New York based improvisational troupe called The Commune whose members have to re-examine their goals when one of them has been recruited to a Saturday Night Live type show.

Jack (Keegan-Michael Key) life begins to change as he needs to keep his new television paymasters happy, he slowly retreats from his comedy pals some of them who are jealous of his success.

Director/writer/actor Mike Birbiglia has written a love letter to improvisational comedy and the stage scenes were improvised. The actors who got training for this type of comedy perform it well but as with much improvisational comedy it never is that funny.

The drama of one person's success on the others does make for a better drama and watch our for a Ben Stiller cameo.

Funny and Hard Hitting All at Once,

Don't Think Twice is a terrific movie with a very well developed plot and a stellar cast that can shine in both dramatic and comedic moments. It is a hard hitting film that is quite blunt about the entertainment industry, chronicling the lives of a group of improv comedians who become stuck in a turmoil when one of their members land a big gig. It emphasises the feeling of jealousy in a very accurate way that anyone involved in this world will be ashamed to admit how relatable it truly is.

I did find that a few characters were left feeling like they were not established enough, and I felt there could have been more room made for them to develop. While I do love all the characters, I was left feeling like I could have learned so much more about Allison and Lindsay, both portrayed very well by their respective actresses, but not given enough time to shine.

The cast is all around amazing, the fact that they are real life comedians really adds to it, feeling like there's hardly any acting going on at all. Keegan-Michael Key is richer than he's ever been, playing a very grounded character, with stellar on screen chemistry between himself and Gillian Jacobs. Huge credit also goes to writer/director Mike Birbiglia, who also plays a very human character, and Chris Gethard plays a role we can not help but emphathise with.

Both hilarious and emotional. Had me laughing out loud and shedding tears, Don't Think Twice is certainly not to be missed for fans of comedy dramas.

A group of comedians start to contemplate their life decisions when one of their friends lands a huge gig.

Best Performance: Keegan-Michael Key
