Movie Info

Watch this satire on Hollywood as it unveils each layer of the system through the eyes of Lenny and Ethan, two friends, determined to override the system. This quest for fame and fortune quickly transcends into a test of conviction as Ethan can't let go of his dying marriage whereas Lenny, a devil-may-care player, would easily compromise his integrity if he had any. An inside look at the fun and drama that would go with sex, money (or lack of) and manipulation. -- © Indican Pictures

The barely watchable buddy comedy L.A. Twister is so sloppily put together it bungles its recycled movie-within-a-movie conceit.

Fun and entertaining but ends up lending an air of contrivance that keeps you from taking it too much to heart.

Pape and Saville-Read are so busy winking and chuckling over their own clever lampooning of Hollywood conventions that they forget to make the rest of us care.

In trying to qualify as mordant satire, charming rom-com, uplifting buddy movie about underdogs trying to stick it to the man and the most meta story ever told, L.A. Twister sprains itself badly.

As written by Geoffrey Saville-Read and directed by Sven Pape, the satire is toothless.

Seeing Hollywood as a business indifferent to dreamers with no cash flow isn't a revelation, but a given. If you're going to hold a mirror up to Tinseltown, at least try tilting it at a new angle.

There are some cute moments here but nothing to write home about. The inside-Hollywood jokes are just that.

The whole thing seems way too self-congratulatory; an indie movie that's all about celebrating people who make indie movies.

This L.A. story is more like a straight to video kind of movie than one to rush out and see on the big screen.

One of those feeble little efforts you'd be inclined to skip at a minor film festival--with good reason.

The best thing about "L.A. Twister" is the energetic, snappy performance by Zack Ward

Both Daly and Ward turn in fine performances ... Undercutting their efforts and the movie's believability are the on-set hijinks strangely included at the end of certain scenes.

Silly, good-natured and full of unlikely moves.
