Critic Reviews for Free Samples
A modest but pleasant small-budget movie with two bits of laziness in the script, but one particularly sweet performance that makes up for them.
Weixler is a delight, and director Tom Gammill captures the right level of deadpan to pull this off.
"Free Samples" is a film about wasting time, and it feels like it.
Never pretending to be something that it isn't, this film is slight and satisfying even if it, at times, seems more like a thesis film than the feature that is intended.
A modest pleasure that greatly benefits from Weixler's charismatic presence.
Audience Reviews for Free Samples
After leaving law school, Jillian(Jess Weixler) spends most of her time hanging out with her friends back in her hometown. Waking up one morning after a night of drinking and socializing, she finds an empty cowboy hat in the bed next to her. Making matters even worse is her friend Nancy(Halley Feiffer) drafting her to hand out free samples from her ice cream truck all day. "Free Samples" does itself no favors by starting with the very disturbing sight of Jesse Eisenberg wearing a cowboy hat. Even if it was not slapdash and episodic, the movie would have had a hard time recovering from that. Plus, the movie is forced in being judgmental in showing what Jillian's life would be like if she does not get her life back together, instead of being relaxed in respecting a character's need for a break. On the plus side, there is a very neat turn from Tippi Hedren but that comes too little, too late.
