Critic Reviews for Being Frank
What a jerk. But what an interesting jerk to be at the center of a quirky and entertaining deadpan comedy/drama.
Unfortunately, in the filmmaker's narrative-feature debut, she takes the theme of betrayal and turns it into fodder for a sitcom, and not a particularly funny one at that.
It adopts a tonally dissonant and thematically confused approach to what is, in essence, little more than a Lifetime movie writ large.
The setup (script by Glen Lakin) is full of wacko screwball potential, some of which is mined, some of which misses the boat.
Gaffigan deals in exaggerated grimaces that shift back and forth from panic to guarded sincerity, which make for most of the movie's humor aside from some cutting lines by the supporting cast.
