Movie Info

Filmmaker Azazel Jacobs offers an absurdist look at life in early-21st Century Los Angeles with this quietly comic tale of two men with the same name, and the woman suddenly caught between them. When jumbled names, an army recruitment slip, and the curiosity of a single man set three unlikely people on a personal odyssey of self-discovery, the stage is set for a quirky tale that follows in the tradition of such cinematic pioneers as Jim Jarmusch, Alex Cox, and Stephen Frears.

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

Very rough, very funny, with sensibilities derived equally from Chaplin, Jim Jarmusch, and the Gang of Four.

Top Critic

Azazel Jacobss unexpectedly beguiling romantic comedy, The GoodTimesKid, finds poetry in wordless scenes of observation.

January 17, 2007 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Though the film never transcends its own neo-boho quirk, it concludes in a marvelous final shot: a long take set to Gang of Four, grungy and materialist in the Jacobs tradition.

The film says so much while saying so little, and it leaves us smiling over its silent wonders.

September 11, 2009 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Photographed with a shabby romanticism.

September 3, 2009 | Full Review…

Jacobs Jr. gives us a film perched somewhere between the realistic solipsism of Mutual Attraction and the insufferable quirk of Garden State.
