In the recent epidemic of comedies about 30-something men in the throes of severe arrested development, he is one of the most pitifully incompetent losers.

Beneath its eccentric premise, Kabluey is a deceptively insightful tale infused with a gentleness and humour that fans of independent film and folks who simply love good storytelling will treasure

There are worse ways to spend an evening at a movie theater than this movie that is far better with sight gags than character development, plot or dialog.

Prendergast seems clueless that an excess of pure weirdness won't lead to an excess of laughs. It won't.

Light-hearted, utterly charming, low-budget screwball comedy about loneliness and alienation - with timely, touching, thought-provoking relevance.

Another tired family values tale about women who make bad parents without men around. Not to mention that wives of deployed military men don't need to struggle to make ends meet or for health insurance, the government does that. Kaphooey.

Dark humor abounds with Lisa Kudrow in a melancholy but humorous role of a woman whose husband has been recalled into Iraq leaving her with two bratty kids to take care of.

There's real wit to Prendergast's aesthetic.

A charming low-budget ensemble piece funny enough to be a surprise sleeper with enduring appeal, ala My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Little Miss Sunshine of years past.

A pleasing antidote to audiences tired of the summer movie blockbuster season, Kabluey is an affecting, noble-hearted charmer.

Prendergast is clearly a force to be reckoned with -- his fearless performance as Salman/Kabluey is a thing of beauty, and his sense of story and humor are note-perfect.

There is oddness and whimsy and ingenuity -- exactly what it takes to get an indie film noticed.

This charming, pointed comedy is a genuine discovery.
