A Formula for Success
22 November 2013 | by dominic519See all my reviews

I just got back from a screening of "The Formula" at my local small town theater. Sadly, I was the only person who showed up. Lots of people in the area missed out on a terrific film. Present at the screening were director Joe Clarke and lead actor Brandon Baker, who were both very pleasant to be around and helpful in answering questions. The movie takes on what could be a "B-movie comedy" premise, and sometimes, that's what it feels like. Stick it out though! The final act of the film is genuinely inspired and a treat to watch. It outlines some serious truths about life and love that you wouldn't see coming from the first half of the film. As for the acting, Baker's character and his roommate have great romantic chemistry and really do seem like they have a real friendship. When they're happy on screen, you're enjoying it too. When they're fighting or in pain, you feel it too. The comedic moments between these two characters are great, backed up by solid writing. Some of the jokes fall flat, but overall, it's a pretty funny movie. I'm glad I decided to check out this movie tonight. I highly recommend it and look forward to seeing Clarke's work in the future!
