Critic Reviews for Hit By Lightning
An offbeat rom-com that ventures down the film-noir path, "Hit by Lightning" manages to make dark comedy fresh by combining two formulas.
"Hit by Lightning" often resembles a laugh-deprived "Seinfeld" episode.
From its uninspired, sitcom-y look to its phoned-in dialogue ("I love you plus infinity"; "I love you plus double infinity") to its creaky plot, "Hit by Lightning" is anything but electrifying.
Cryer makes a likable sad-sack and Will Sasso provides balance as his narcissistic best friend. But both guys deserve better. As do we.
It's a black-comedy plot without any blackness or actual comedy, unless mugging and bro-heiming by Mad TV's Will Sasso counts as hilarious.
Audience Reviews for Hit By Lightning
I used to enjoy watching Jon Cryer in "Two and a Half Men, and Will Sasso is pretty much funny at anything he does, most recently seen in "The Three Stooges" as Curly. Sadly, I do have to say that they are not given enough material to work with here. "Hit By Lightning" has very little laughs, even though the screen presence of Cryer and Sasso together was a nice treat. After meeting the girl of his dreams on a dating site, Ricky realizes she has a husband who would kill her if he found out about them, therefore forcing a murder plan on Ricky towards her husband. The plot is pretty bland, making it a difficult viewing experience, because I still found myself enjoying the cast. By the end of this film, my eyes were sore from all of the eye rolling I had endured, from it's dumb comedy to it's clumsy execution. Although it is a very weak film in my eyes, the crew did work from a string budget, and I highly commend them for getting the cast they did. Overall, it does feel like more of a 20-minute-sitcom premise, but you may find some enjoyment if you like these actors. "Hit By Lightning" is not my cup of tea.
