With all the talent gathered for this, it's hard to say it's not that great. It's also hard because it seems like Tate was making something genius. But then I feel like he just didn't do that good of a job writing. I'm even putting aside that my simple and very small expectations were completely twisted around. There's not to many laughs, but they are all laugh out loud hilarious. This is ultimately more of a drama, which is fine, and it's also about how old friends getting back together goes to shit. It all depends how you go into the movie. And the actors are all great, and give their all.
The title says it all. Ugly (on the inside) folks, college friends, meet again at the behest of a member that is dying. The meeting is occasion for some "changes" that make everyone a less ugly person, and we're supposed to feel good about it, through the magic of quirky independent film charm. But that's not what happens. It's the script's fault. That's enough about that.
Decent acting but the characters are by and large just as the title suggests pretty ugly people.
