Movie Info

The movie begins on the last day of Naomi Holbroke's marriage. After 9,125 consecutive burned dinners, each one of which results in a quarrel with her husband, she admits her failure as housewife to a high-ranking British government official and sets off to reclaim the acting career she gave up "for him" twenty-five years ago. In France at a small film festival, she meets Billy Rust, a man her age who directed a legendary cult film twenty-five years ago and has done nothing since. He's in Europe

I won't mince words: The would-be comedy "Tied to a Chair" is a chaotic mess.

Insulting several nationalities and most of the filmgoing public, "Tied to a Chair" lurches through acting atrocities, continuity glitches and narrative gaps with grating insouciance.

Strings together characters and twists with amateurishly chaotic abandon.

Tied to a Chair mostly suffers from a sense of confusion that never reads like bona fide experimentalism, just aimlessness.

A potentially interesting premise is squandered by disappointing execution in this micro-budget indie comedy.
