Plot: When a dysfunctional group of unpublished writers accept Hannah into their fold, the last thing they expect is her overnight success. Can these lovable misfits achieve their artistic dreams and avoid killing one another in the process? Runtime: 92 mins Release Date: 18 Mar 2014
I really enjoyed this movie. I had no idea what to expect and was more than pleasantly surprised. Each of the characters were well developed and quite interesting. The story line was original and witty. It is a funny movie but it also has depth. It is not your average romantic comedy. I highly recommend it. The cast is quite impressive too. It was nice to see the late, great Dennis Farina featured. This is a great date movie but isn't just a chick flick. I was able to see it as a preview and enjoyed it on the big screen but it will definitely show well at home too. The way the weather has <more>
been in the Northeast this winter, stay home and watch this movie!
Wisdom delivered with wit and charm (by mary-giambalvo)
At the outset, let me say that Dennis Farina was a master of, from moment to moment, both hyperbole and subtlety. What an actor. I understand he died soon after completing this film. The man was good.All the actors in this ensemble cast did a lovely job creating their diverse characters and delivering witty dialog, which was refreshing in itself. While all the characters were somewhat exaggerated as is needed in a comedy, there was enough truth in them to take a few nibbles out of this "pretend writer", also in a group, who saw myself a bit too clearly.Authors Anonymous delivered <more>
what I want in a comedy: wit, intelligent dialog, appealing characters, funny lines, and a truth that rises up and whacks one on the side of the head. These elements frequently miss the mark for me in comedies. Above all, the writing was spot on.
So good that I watched it two days in a row!! (by Clairet-605-360807)
I enjoyed this film so much, that I watched it the first film I've EVER done this with! *two days in a row* - the first time alone, and the second time, with a friend!!'Authors Anonymous' is a funny, poignant and brutally honest look at life within a writers' group in California. The dialogue is hilarious and there are several memorable performances, especially from Teri Polo, Dennis Farina, and, above all, Dylan Walsh, whose deadpan delivery stole the show. The film is beautifully written, wryly observed and cleverly directed documentary-style - kudos to the writer, David <more>
I went to see based on a recommendation from my writer's group, dragging my husband along with me to a theater over an hour away. We had seen the trailer, but didn't realize that it would be laugh-out-loud funny so often. The semi-documentary style of the movie made it feel like you got to know each of the characters really well. The movie took you through all of the emotions that you experience as a writer; the heartache of rejection, the envy of others' success, and the fear that you might never get a contract yourself. This movie is not 'easy' watching. As with many <more>
indie movies, there are times between laughs that are really uncomfortable, and you just have to sit with them and let them sink in. I was impressed by how each of the actors were able to show their characters struggle with the awkwardness of their own emotions in various situations.Both my husband and I were impressed with the movie. We both think that it felt 'real'. It's definitely worth a watch - even if you're not a writer - if you've ever competed for anything and watched someone else win, you will get something from this movie. There was a powerful message in there as well - always keep writing.
Give yourself permission to see this charming indie movie. We laughed, we sighed, and joined the throng at one of the premieres in appreciating it. My favorite curmudgeon and I rated the movie 2 thumbs up and agreed that in addition to tickling our funny bones, this was among the most enjoyable movies we've seen in the past few years. It is clearly not a high-budget movie, and if you're expecting that you'll be disappointed. If however you're open to a good story, well-defined characters, and charming, often comedic scenes, Authors Anonymous will be well worth your investment. <more>
Written by Dave Congalton, the film is directed by Ellie Kanner, and stars Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Chris Klein, Jonathan Bennett, Dylan Walsh, Teri Polo, and the late Dennis Farina. Enjoy!
Author's Anonymous is fun the first time and more meaningful the next times. (by judysalamacha)
Author's Anonymous introduces you to a group of writers searching for that agent or publisher. I liked this film. The film is fun with quirky characters, a great ensemble cast, fast-paced scenes, and what most I think I liked most about it...it had what most comedies comedies lack today, a life lesson. I think it is one of these films you enjoy the first time through for the quirkiness the of characters.Then you watch again for the layers of personality that emerge in each character. They are funny, but not silly. There is idiotic behavior that is common human behavior....OK,stretched to <more>
the max in most cases. You probably know people like this and they probably aren't all writers. They don't have to be. People interacting with each other have their likes and dislikes and act this way. And writers, there are rules in critique groups. You just might learn what to do...or not to do. It wasn't the best movie I've ever seen in my life, but it will be one I'll watch again...and again.
A Thoroughly Enjoyable Film (by johnstreby-752-977747)
As a writer myself, with two self-published novels and more rejections than I'd care to count, I found "Authors Anonymous" to be thoroughly enjoying. It is the sort of movie that Christopher Guest does so well, depicting a group of wannabes who take themselves far too seriously. True, most of the characters were rather buffoonish, but the movie does convey the angst and frustration of the aspiring writer, desperate to make a connection with someone who might make things happen. The postage-stamp size rejection slip that one character gets is an exaggeration, but not by much, of <more>
the minuscule size of many such disappointing missives from agents, almost as though the intent is to make the writer feel small as well. I can understand the frustration of the Obert character over the fact that Hannah has achieved overnight success despite lack of any knowledge of literary history, but the fact is that in the book world of today, serendipity plays almost as important a role as talent. Possibly this film is aimed at a small niche market and won't strike a chord with the broader public, but for me, it was well worth viewing.
I "authorize" you to see out Authors, its just grand (by inkblot11)
In the Los Angeles area, Henry Chris Klein delivers pizzas and cleans carpets. Once a promising football star who won a college scholarship, injuries turned him in a new direction. Now, he aspires to be a famous writer and goes regularly to the place where F. Scott died, for he greatly admires our creator of The Great Gatsby. To further his cause, he has joined a "writing group" who pledges to lift each other up in the hopes of future publishing. Among the ragtag groups is an eye doctor Dylan Walsh who started the group to support his lovely wife Teri Polo who is writing a <more>
Russian romance. Also attending regularly are a pretentious young hotshot, who writes a mere sentence at a time, a wannabe Tom Clancy, John Dennis Farina who KNOWS he has what it takes and beautiful Hannah Kaley Cuoco who seems a bit dim, never having heard of some of the world's top authors. Mysteriously, Henry is in love with Hannah, although she is not an intellectual like him, and he has developed writer's block as a result of his unrequited love. Amid book launches at hardware stores, secret affairs, and desperate attempts to garner agents, who will be the first to make it big? This DARLING film is a winner on many fronts. it is funny, romantic, and spot on in its analysis of would be writers. The cast is wonderful, especially Farina who gave one of his last great comic turns. Viewers will also like the great sets, mighty nice costumes, lovable script and very fine direction. What a would have given to see this terrific film in a big screen setting!
A Movie About Writers - For Writers! (by mojoguzzi-879-68498)
Perusing the reviews I see positive and negative. I'd bet my next paycheck that the more glowing reviews are from the most experienced writers. The characters are dead on representations of several common personality types and varying levels of talent likely to be found in any group of writers and writer wannabes.Some of the characterizations are exaggerated for comic effect, but anyone who's walked the walk in Hollywood or the publishing industry will recognize the doctor slash idea man and the writer who's never read a book, the nasty jealousies and ego bashing, the agents and <more>
successful writers besieged by hopeless desperadoes and the pay-to-publish scams.Chris Klein and Kaley Cuoco give nuanced performances that stand out among the over-the-top supporting characters.The only big complaint I have is that the writer of this writers movie only gets fourth bill behind the director and producer credits and the director's producing credit, the first two of which are inexplicably repeated after an interstitial closing clip. Fittingly ironic, I suppose.
