Running Funny

This easygoing 2007 indie was adapted by director Anthony Grippa and his uncle, Charles Evered, from Evered's play, which he wrote 20 years earlier (it premiered with a young Paul Giamatti in one of the leads). Its story of two unemployed college grads (Gene Gallerano, Maximilian Osinski) renting out the garage of a blind widower (Louis Zorich) has some funny and genuine moments, but its stage origins are obvious. The dialogue is so fully formed and its delivery so polished that the characters seem to have been rehearsing it forever; the movie feels like the closing night of a long run, when the actors have long since squeezed all the juice out of the material. 80 min.
