Funny Ha Ha2002

  • 3.7
  • passes the bechdel test
Marnie is 23 and "wandering the Earth," perhaps in search of romance, or employment--or perhaps just avoiding both. Mostly she's just trying to keep her sense of humor as a constellation of friends and would-be lovers engage in their own post-collegiate flailing around her. Rarely have the loose, shaggy rambles of young adulthood felt so alive and uncanny onscreen. Shot on 16mm and originally released in 2002, FUNNY HA HA is a simple film, straightforwardly composed, but its peculiar rhythms and unexpected cross-currents will always reward repeat viewings.

I really enjoyed watching this film! It felt so easy. We get to watch a group of friendly, well-meaning characters navigate their day to day lives. I appreciated the film's exploration of how the way in which we communicate our wants, needs and desires impacts our interactions and relationships with others. As in life, the characters sometimes stumble over their words, feel embarrassed and miscommunicate—yet no matter how big the conflict, their displays of respect and understanding help them reach a happy resolution. It's just nice to see a film that demonstrates "the love ethic."

This movie has a lot of heart and the characters are all pretty lovable, especially Marnie.
