The 4th

It's the Fourth of July in Los Angeles, and Jamie, a broke illustrator who is behind on his rent, tries to throw a cookout while his overbearing roommate is out of town, but everything seems to go wrong.

    This is basically hipster version of "Curb your enthusiasm". A dude tries to throw a party for 4th of July, but stupid people just make this guys day worse and worse. All kinds of funny coincidences happen.

    You either find this funny or you don't. I, on the other hand, was crying from laughing so much. 😂💯

  • ★★★½ review by tony Yohonson on Letterboxd

    I laughed practically the entire time. A real comedy of errors, writer/director/editor/star Andre Hyland piles on the misfortunes and jokes, leaving little room for hardly any emotional gravity. But who cares? It's a 'day in the life' hangout comedy that leans into hipster territory but ultimately saves itself by being dependable for good punchlines and - despite our very brief time spent with them - characters we somehow get to know and feel a sort of connection with, even if we aren't sure what it means.

    Looking forward to more from Andre.

    Situeaciones rocambolescas y frescas

  • ★★★½ review by ∆LX on Letterboxd

    Este tipo de premisas suelen atraerme bastante ya que no hay momento para relajarse ante la imparable cadena de sucesos negativos, ya sean por causas propias o por causas ajenas, que caen sobre el protagonista. El filme de Andre Hyland consigue transmitir muy bien la frustración que él mismo está sintiendo —es director, escritor, productor y protagonista—, pero a la vez no puedes dejar de reír ante lo bizarro o absurdo tanto de las desdichas que sufre como de los personajes por los que las sufre, aunque realmente él sea el que está tomando constantemente malas decisiones debido parcialmente a una irresponsabilidad típica de la juventud actual. No obstante, The 4th ya merece la pena solo por los temazos de música turca setentera/ochentera que suenan mientras Hyland vaga por LA.
