Movie Info

How does a man convince the woman he loves that attempting to make him the toast of Broadway could be a really bad idea? Paul Halpern (David Paymer) is a cynical, middle-aged comedy writer who primarily works in television. Paul once had dreams of becoming a successful playwright, but after a passionate, short-lived relationship with a beautiful woman, he wrote a stage drama that became a notorious flop when it was presented for the first (and only) time by a Los Angeles theater company.

An all too apt title for a would-be comedy in which everyone in it and everything about it seems willfully designed to be unfunny.

Paymer has developed a sort of practiced gravitational pull, and his easy confidence, enhanced by eyes that can only be described as soulful, elevates his character from a flat Woody Allen wannabe to a fully realized human being.

If Paymer and Chao had any chemistry together we might be more interested in their budding romance

Pretty ballsy of the filmmakers to go with the title "Enemies of Laughter," seeing that it's a comedy.

A small, delightful indie flick with a singular voice and spry wit. Rarely is a title so willfully far from accurate.

This slow, stilted comedy just sits there and whines... kind of like its lead.
