Movie Info

American independent filmmaker Lawrence Blume makes his feature debut with the absurd dark comedy Martin & Orloff, starring a lot of the folks from the Upright Citizens Brigade. Martin Flam (Ian Roberts) designs mascot costumes for a corporate chain of Chinese restaurants. After a failed suicide attempt, he goes to see the incompetent therapist Dr. Eric Orloff (Matt Walsh). Under the guise of conducting therapy sessions, the quack doctor then drags Martin on a series of seemingly random adventures about town. Dr. Orloff then recruits a gang of oddballs and malcontents (played by Katie Roberts, Sal Graziano, David Cross, and H. Jon Benjamin) to help Martin face his fears. The film also includes cameos from comedians Janeane Garofalo, Tina Fey, Andy Richter, and Amy Poehler. Martin & Orloff was screened at the 2002 South by Southwest Film Festival.

Critic Reviews for Martin & Orloff

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (8)

One of the few films you could call wildly uneven and the filmmakers would still consider it a compliment.

May 14, 2004 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The movie and its players have a natural, matter-of-fact sense of comedy. It doesn't rub our faces in its jokes.

May 7, 2004 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

You'll chuckle at least once during the proceedings -- but probably not much more than that.

January 15, 2004 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Provides a fairly steady series of laughs thanks to the fully committed performances by the two stars and the sheer brazenness of its humor.

November 14, 2003

Martin & Orloff might have worked as a 10-minute sketch, but Lawrence Blume's low-budget feature quickly wears thin.

November 7, 2003 | Rating: 1.5/4

Unless you find kicks in the groin hilarious, the lunacy here is considerably more tired than inspired.

November 7, 2003 | Rating: 2/4
