It’s a Frame-Up

I can't think of any other intentional comedies of recent years that have given me so many, or so many varied, big laughs in the space of 30 minutes.

NO LONGER PLAYING

It’s a Frame-Up

The movie that sets comedy back 75 years--to when it was, y'know, actually funny. Those merry madcaps of mayhem, Biffle & Shooster, are back in an all-new "made in 1938" three-reel comedy (in B&W, of course) that finds them landing jobs in an art gallery--on the very day a priceless painting has been delivered. You can figure out what happens next. Making his writing/directing debut, renowned classic film distributor and independent producer Michael Schlesinger pours his love of Old Hollywood into an authentic-as-possible recreation of the glory days of comedy teams, replete with snappy dialogue, grievous puns, plenty of slapstick, familiar-seeming character actors and even impressions--plus a plot twist or two. Who says they can’t make ‘em like they used to?

“I can't think of any other intentional comedies of recent years that have given me so many, or so many varied, big laughs in the space of 30 minutes. It makes what has basically been a dead art form for the past 50 years feel vital once again.”—Tim Lucas, Video Watchdog
