Jeffrey's Review of Looking for Kitty
Looking for Kitty(2004)
Looking for Kitty is the sort of indie comedy that is far too smug for its own good. It has some scenes that work well, but the film itself just feels too one-note, simplistic, and far too confined to justify its already brief running time. The characters aren't particularly interesting, the situations aren't particularly funny, and the narrative isn't nearly as clever as the filmmakers seem to believe it is. About the only thing it has going for it are the indie sensibilities that inject a sense of realism. That, however, only goes so far when there isn't much else to keep the audience engaged. The acting is serviceable, and the writing okay, but the story is too bland. Overall, a lackluster attempt at Woody Allen imitation.
