Thoughts on Search Party

 

Characters/PerformanceEvan is the friend about to get his career on path but his friendship with Jason finds himself in trouble. Nardo is the friend who is about to get married but ends ups stranded in Mexico trying to win his girlfriend back. Jason is the screw up of the friends who always puts his friends in problems, he needs to look at his own situation and learn to grow up with this adventure.

Performance wise, Adam, TJ and Thomas all give good performances showing their comedy abilities throughout.

StoryThe story shows how three best friends all going on different paths will stay there for each other no matter what happens even if their personal lives are going in different direction. The adventure across Mexico is fun throughout and the madness the characters go through make for to get back together.

Adventure/ComedyThe adventure side is all fun as we get to see how far the friends would go to help each other with the comedy all coming off in the right places.

SettingsThe settings add to the comedy adventure the characters find themselves on.

Final ThoughtsThis is a good comedy that does have plenty of laughs even if the laughs are slightly more risky in places.

 

Overall: Sit back and enjoy the comedy.

  1. I’ve had this in my “To Watch” pile for a while as I love a fun American Comedy, looks like it is a nice watch, and a standard film in that genre. 🙂
