We all dream of finding our perfect match, but rarely do we ever dream of meeting that person when the timing isn’t perfect. Based on their own off-screen relationship, THIS ISN’T FUNNY is a romantic comedy co-written by stars Katie Page and Paul Ashton (who also directed) as two people who fit together, just as things fall apart. When comedienne Eliot (Page) accidentally hits world-traveler Jamie (Ashton) with her car, it sparks great material for her set and also keen interest from both sides. But, the closer they get to each other, the more vulnerable they become, and opening up to one another isn’t a strong suit for either. As their relationship blossoms, they begin to lean more and more about their respective modes of escape-therapy, medication, and drinking. THIS ISN’T FUNNY is a charming and endearing look at the idea that there’s someone for everyone, and a realistic look at the journey to finding the people in our lives on whom we can truly depend. – T.W.
