As the former captain of a high school and middle school improv team ranked first place in our state, I do have to say that this movie hits very close to home, except for the actual improv its self. Their shows are based mostly on making up scenes and their shows are low energy and very beginner level, using very basic forms of yes and whilst never really reaching any conflict resolution or playing more interesting games. With that being said, the rest of the movie and what goes on within the shows is what makes this movie so brilliant. Even though it is all improvised, many members of the troupe are asked to repeat characters and their internal conflict with the spotlight is all too accurate. They manage to play to each others strengths and weaknesses beautifully and it highlights that quite well. And with Jacks sudden absence from the team, things can fall apart rather easily, and although they may be missing a member, the team dynamic stills stays strong even after his leave. And as far as the offstage bits, they were pleasant and charming to see them all living together, "Friends" style. Just like with improv, sometimes life imitates art more than art imitates life.
