      armando p A film of this nature will not reach most audiences. This would be best for those that are used to enjoying indie films or those in need of background noise. The story itself runs along the lines of the stereotypical aloof, that does not quite fit into society, while trying to make it through a day filled with misfortune. It was not easy to notics any parts that stand out. It was way too mild in terms of gags or rememberable punchlines. For instance, a scene involving a rest room and an unruly woman could have been way more over the top in their verbal exchanges and it would have still fit much more in the theme of "life in LA". Most of this film centers around phone exchanges used to push the plot narrative and multiple scenes of awkward communication or avoidable arguments. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Wow, out of left field, this is a gem. Really fun. Think of the insanity of "After Hours" but move it to Los Angeles and replace the "80's shlub with a millennial. So funny. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member This is underrated for sure. Kid has the worst luck ever during one day, handled in a hilarious and pretty even tempered way. If you like silly irony like I do, then you'll definitely laugh out loud at times.. like the truck nuts bit. Haha! He reminds me of that funny friend that trouble follows relentlessly but has the best stories, and it's just another day in his life. the struggle is real (funny!) Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Imagine an adult(ish), millennial version of Charlie Brown getting kicked to death for 81 minutes. In other words, glorious to behold.

      G. Allen Johnson San Francisco Chronicle There's a struggle between the simplified overview of history, sort of a History 101 (a PBS specialty), and the deep dives into individual stories, which is when the series especially shines. Rated: 3/4 May 13, 2020 Full Review Justin Lowe Hollywood Reporter Unexpected layers of complexity. May 12, 2020 Full Review Jason Bailey Flavorwire The one-crazy-day-in-LA framework makes it sound like another 'Tangerine,' and it sort of is - if everyone in that movie were utterly loathsome. May 3, 2016 Full Review Danielle Solzman Solzy at the Movies The 4th is a slacker comedy that has cult comedy classic written all over it. Nov 12, 2017 Full Review Fred Topel Nerd Report In a way there's a sense of tragedy that this is all they have, a pathetic barbecue on a day off. The film doesn't take that angle though. We are supposed to consider Jamie the underdog hero trying to make everything right. Feb 4, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews
