When their father dies, leaving them the family lake home to fix up and sell, two estranged brothers are sent careening from one hilarious misadventure to the next in this comic tour de force.

 

 

(Todd Sklar | 86 min.) When a movie opens with a naked guy passed out in a tent, you know you’re in for a treat. This is where Jim (the responsible one) tracks down his brother Dave (the lovable loser), to tell him that their father has died. After the brothers ruin the funeral with an epic battle of one-upsmanship that ends in a fist fight (based on elements from the Sklar’s popular short ’92 Skybox Alonzo Morning Rookie Card, Rooftop 2012), Dave convinces Jim that they need to work on their relationship, and that the best way to do it is to drive to Branson, Missouri to fix up their inherited lake house. Together.

When they arrive, the place is in shambles, and as they sift through the remnants of their childhood, they manage to break more than they put back together. They hurtle from one bad idea to the next. As they do, the film vigorously revives the dying art of physical comedy and takes a stand in the name of pure, unadulterated silliness. The gleeful bad behavior stems from Dave at first, but as the film progresses, responsible Jim seems to absorb more and more of his brother’s chaotic lust for living. So much so, that he, and the audience, begin to question his sensible life choices. Alex Rennie (Dave) and James Pumphrey (Jim) give ferociously funny performances, as the brothers collide with small-town Russian mobsters, poorly-toupeed lawyers, dangerously unprofessional cops, and over and over again, each other.

Awful Nice is that rare modern comedy that manages to have a lot of heart, without ever veering off into maudlin sentimentality. As such, it is sure to delight anyone who has a brother, and everyone who loves to laugh.
