Movie Info

Bobby is a struggling screenwriter taking care of a feisty Jack Russell puppy because of a deal he made with a girl he's hoping to sleep with. During a month of every day life in New York City, Bobby grapples with his friend Scott who is a womanizer, and a foe Hart Carlton, who steals Bobby's screenplay ideas and puts them into a campy morality play about 9-11. All of this occurs while Bobby has several failed relationships of his own.

  • A movie where the only conception of life seems to come from other movies makes for no kind of movie at all.

  • You would think that by now budding filmmakers would have given up on making a Woody Allen movie.

  • This sort of thing was indulgent enough the first time around; transplanted to the mumblecore milieu, it's intolerable.

  • Fresh out of NYU film school, Blitstein films what he knows: His tale of a young filmmaker's writer's block gleefully incorporates all manner of antic styles, from Mack Sennett-style double-takes to Felliniesque black-and-white pantomime.

  • It's pretty hilarious.

  • The film ends up feeling like even creative inspiration and apotheosis is hopeless because all that can ever emerge from these characters is derivative of some earlier work. When you look at it this way, Chirp can't help seeming like a time capsule...
