Movie Info

A loud-mouthed lout has a less than cordial reunion with his brother in this independent comedy drama from director Drake Doremus. Sam Nussbaum (Andrew Dickler) is an insufferably opinionated loser who has somehow managed to charm a beautiful young woman, Steph (Marguerite Moreau), who has agreed to marry him. Steph is puzzled when she learns that Sam hasn't invited his brother, Tom (Ben York Jones), to the upcoming wedding; Sam doesn't want to talk about it, so Steph decides to surprise her

This unfortunately titled film has an offbeat charm that just about makes up for its short running time.

Despite the brief running time, audiences will likely lose interest before the film's speedy conclusion; turns out the most unexpected -- and entertaining -- thing about "Douchebag" is its title.

Writer/director Drake Doremus has created a funny movie where the humor comes from the nature of the characters rather than obvious comic setups.

As anthropological study, as a short-storylike glimpse into a character better observed from afar -- or through the lens of a jumpy digital video camera -- Douchebag is undeniably fascinating.

The most provocative thing about the DIY trifle Douchebag is its title, and even that doesn't amount to much.

It's a minimalist Sideways, not so much mumblecore as talkycore.

The slo-mo speed bumps and hiccups indicate too much thought and emotion rather than not enough.

If watching men dressed and acting like eight-year-old boys appeals to you then "Douchebag" might be your bag. At least the filmmakers titled it properly.

October 3, 2010 Full Review Source: ColeSmithey.com

A focused and mostly compelling drama with interesting characters and very natural, raw performances, but its lazy, rushed third act sinks it into mediocrity and blandness.

A Sundance favorite that falls somewhere between the mature polish of Sideways and the mumblecore scruffiness of Mark and Jay Duplass' slyly insightful The Puffy Chair.

Intended to amuse younger viewers and send older ones to Urban Dictionary, Douchebag's title is, unfortunately, its most noteworthy aspect

A fresh and funny exploration of the close encounter of two brothers who have been estranged from each other for two years.

It definitely packs a punch and creeps into those personal places you might not want it to explore.

Leave it to Sundance to program a film like this and have it not live up to its title.
