While it's seldom uproarious, there's steady amusement in the luckless protag's rise from universally proclaimed "biggest douchebag" to ... well, anything would be an improvement.

A tightly scripted comedy on the fast track to a very twisted happy ending.

The entire experience of You Might As Well Live is like one of those "Dark Comedy" nights at a sketch club, written on the fly by the most demented people in the room.

Audience Reviews for You Might as Well Live


A typical Canadian film - low budget, no-name actors - but this one does not really have a textbook plot. In this film, the 'hero', Robert is unwillingly graduated from the mental asylum where he belongs.

Robert has to try and make it in the real world, although his world is pretty strange to start with. We get to follow him through his journey. I never thought I would say this, but there is too much nudity in this film.
