Punching Henry 2016 BDRip x264-ROVERS
Plot: Hapless satirical songwriter Henry Phillips is lured to LA by renowned TV producer Jay Warren, who wants to make a show about the life of a struggling performer. When Jay sees Henry bomb at a local club, he is convinced that this story must be told. With the support of his longtime musician friend Jillian, and his well-meaning but sub-par manager Ellen Pinsky, Henry endures the ups and downs of LA living, and even secures what appears to be the Hollywood dream. But as a major TV network gets involved, he must decide whether his legacy will be to make jokes, or become the butt of them.
Can’t seem to get it right…..
When I first heard about ‘Punching Henry’ I did not know quite what to expect.
The theme of a ‘can’t-get-anything-right-everyman’ has been tried, and not all attempts have been successful.
Then I saw ‘Punching Henry.’
In the context of a guy’s attempt at fame and art, everything he did, except for one thing, somehow worked against him (I will leave out the ‘one thing’ so as not to spoil it for those on the fence.)
The timing was right; the pace was spot on; the humor was there; and the inevitability of it all, from the two cabs to the wrong turn off the elevator, and everything in between, worked.
