Audience Reviews for Revenge for Jolly!

Harry (Brian Petsos) is an alcoholic, a degenerate gambler, and just an overall miserable person, but one thing does make him feel a little better, his chihuahua, Jolly. While Harry is out, a bad man comes looking for him, and when he doesn't find him, he leaves a warning, and hangs Jolly from the ceiling. Upon returning home, Harry finds Jolly and loses it before meeting up with his cousin Cecil (Oscar Issac). Together, they go on an alcohol fueled revenge trip. At first I thought this was supposed to be some kind of farce on Tarentino films, but soon realized it's not sophisticated enough for that. These two guys are drunk the whole film and I suppose their bumbling actions are supposed to be funny, but they are far from it. The Producers must have known this and that's why bigger names have cameos in just about every scene. No one can believe this is all over a dog, what I can't believe is that the two leads weren't re-cast after the first day of filming. I really am at a lose to think of a comedy that was less funny than this. I gave it one star, because of the appearance by Elijah Wood, which was absolutely the only reason anyone should even think about seeing this piece of trash. Other than that, Revenge For Jolly! is just another independent comedy, that falls flat on it's face.

Loved the idea. A fun new twist on the revenge genre. Acting was and believable. Though the story was all over the map with no sense of direction. Still watchable, enjoyable. Spoiler Alert!! But went from dark comedy to just dark. Not in a good way. Then, the ending conclusion.....c'mon man! Easy way out of story telling. If it would have had some resolution. Just the slightest bit! It would have made for a much better film and ratings. Still a fun enough movie to rent only, only, only at a redbox for a dollar.

Very strange little movie with some interesting cameos from some minor but familiar TV stars. It's violent and bizarre and not particularly entertaining.
