Audience Reviews for Girl Walks Into a Bar

A Girl Walks Into a Bar was a fun watch. It's an oringinal, funny, smart flick. I really liked the cast too. The story moves quickly leaving no room to get bored. I liked how all the characters are all linked in some way. I really liked Carla Gugino as Francine. She is snarky and I like that. I also liked Aaron Tveit (first time seeing him in a film). I found him charming and funny.
The movie is about Francine, an ex-cop, who is doing a case with a fellow cop named Sam in catching a dentist who is looking to hire a hit-man/woman to kill his cheating wife. While waiting for said dentist to retrieve his mulah, Francine runs into Henry, a really good pocket picker. He charms her and takes her evidence against the dentist which leads her to several bars searching for him.
It's a rather short film, but I really enjoyed it. It's just different from the norm. Which is why I enjoy indie flicks so much.

One night, ten bars, lots of mayhem.

Decent good movie! The cast in this is pretty impressive and everyone really pulls off their part well. There really isn't much to this movie and it's not all that of an original idea but the way it's presented makes it seem fresh. I really enjoyed this more then I expected and this makes for a good watch. Overall, a funny and entertaining movie that is well worth checking out.

Along the way, we are introduced to a series of idiosyncratic characters, from gangsters to exotic dancers, from ex-cons to cops, with the odd hatcheck girl and bartender thrown in for good measure.

"One night, ten bars, lots of mayhem."

A sharp-witted comedy that follows a group of apparent strangers in interlocking stories taking place in ten different bars during the course of one evening throughout Los Angeles.

REVIEW
A film that holds the distinction and made especially for YouTube, and for free no less, from writer/director Sebastian Gutierrez (Women In Trouble, Elektra Luxx) and starring a bevy of notable actors and actresses like Carla Gugino (who also happens to be Gutierrez's wife), Alexis Bledel, Josh Hartnett, Rosario Dawson - note: this is not a Sin City reunion - Robert Forster, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Zachary Quinto, Michelle Ryan and Danny DeVito. The movie plays out like a pulpy neo-noir drama with intertwining storylines with a quick-witted screenplay and is anchored by a great ensemble cast. Virtually every scene set in a bar, and the film's whole conceit is just characters in verbal jousts about the whys and wherefores and consisting of a wide range of topic. What reeled me in, for the most part, is the director never going for anything grand or some big climactic shootout with lots of explosions, he downplays almost everything, soaks up the seedy locale of dingy Los Angeles and let's his fast-and-loose script do the talking. I also like that little dancing ditty in the end, any movie who references Godard's 'Band of Outsiders' gets an A on my book.
