Take 44: Not That Funny

Tuesday: My "take" on a film. 

A simple story of how far a serious man will go for love.

Available on Amazon Prime and described as: A love story about a woman who "just wants someone who makes her laugh" and a man who is not that funny.

I found the film refreshing. When I reflected on it later, I realized it didn't pack a punch, it didn't have a wow-factor, it wasn't fast-paced, it wasn't a knee-slapper... so what did it have going for it? A clean story about a decent, kind, man falling in love. It's that simple. And that beautiful.

I loved the message (as the trailer states): "Sometimes we need to stop trying... and just be ourselves."

Watch the trailer here.

Notes on content:
  • No sex or nudity.
  • No profanity.
  • A brief scene of someone getting punched in the jaw.
