Not so much a feature film as a therapy session where the star is acting as both patient and psychiatrist, Manny Lewis is a distinctly flat experience.
Absolutely terrible...Unfunny, aimless and largely pointless, you'd be better off listening to five minutes of any Carl Barron routine than submitting yourself to yet another Australian feature film that apparently had no audience in mind.
Carl Barron's brand of moody introspection and manufactured romance is unlikely to connect with old fans or win over many new ones.
A film with serious potential marred by a reliance on cliche and a desire to make people happy.
The incessant talk that continues from start to finish might just be the movie's strongpoint -- and given how clumsy and contrived it is, that's saying something.
It's often funny, episodic and threatens to go to dark places before settling into something that's sweet and wholesome.
Manny Lewis is a bittersweet, utterly charming romantic comedy, and Carl Barron is a delight.
As it stands, Manny Lewis doesn't deserve your time, only the Vaudeville hook.
I like the concept - a successful comedian who can't relate to anyone beyond his audience - but somehow this well-meaning comedy starring Aussie comedian Carl Barron fails to ignite
I feel bad for not liking Manny Lewis more. I'm Australian, I enjoy Carl Barron and I thought a lot of the movie was sort of sweet.
But there are just *so* many ridiculous leaps of coincidence to make the story stumble along, it brings you out of the film constantly, and to be honest, it's frequently uninteresting. Romantic Comedy is about as far from my interests as you can get though, so take that with a grain of salt.
