Audience Reviews for Lovers, Liars and Lunatics

I adore Amber Benson, I really do, but this is awful. The blurb on the back of the DVD states that Lovers, Liars & Lunatics is a "dark screwball comedy". But there's nothing remotely witty, zany or disturbing here. The script is truly inept and brings down any good work from the sometimes inventive direction. Line reading after line reading is delivered in 'first rehearsal' non-feeling, the script sounding like it was written in one evening the night before a deadline for a homework assignment. Performances range from middling to downright awful, and Benson herself is wretched, her sandwich-short-of-a-picnic character annoying as hell, and the snail-like pacing makes the film a chore to get through. Benson probably invested a huge amount of time, effort and personal finance in order to get her film made. Perhaps next time she should hire a writer and spread herself a little less thin.
