Movie Info

Watch this satire on Hollywood as it unveils each layer of the system through the eyes of Lenny and Ethan, two friends, determined to override the system. This quest for fame and fortune quickly transcends into a test of conviction as Ethan can't let go of his dying marriage whereas Lenny, a devil-may-care player, would easily compromise his integrity if he had any. An inside look at the fun and drama that would go with sex, money (or lack of) and manipulation. -- © Indican Pictures

Critic Reviews for L.A. Twister

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (7)

The barely watchable buddy comedy L.A. Twister is so sloppily put together it bungles its recycled movie-within-a-movie conceit.

Top Critic

Fun and entertaining but ends up lending an air of contrivance that keeps you from taking it too much to heart.

Dallas Morning News
Top Critic

Pape and Saville-Read are so busy winking and chuckling over their own clever lampooning of Hollywood conventions that they forget to make the rest of us care.

Top Critic

In trying to qualify as mordant satire, charming rom-com, uplifting buddy movie about underdogs trying to stick it to the man and the most meta story ever told, L.A. Twister sprains itself badly.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

As written by Geoffrey Saville-Read and directed by Sven Pape, the satire is toothless.

L.A. Weekly
Top Critic

Seeing Hollywood as a business indifferent to dreamers with no cash flow isn't a revelation, but a given. If you're going to hold a mirror up to Tinseltown, at least try tilting it at a new angle.
