Cheap Thrills - employee screenin'

Well, I woke up early today to get over to the Ritz for an employee screenin' of Cheap Thrills, which Drafthouse Films bought durin' SxSW for distribution.

Kinda awkward, though, since it was me and a bunch of folks from the corporate office in the theater...

...anyway...

Craig is down on his luck, with a wife & new baby in a home that has an eviction notice on the door. The same day he promises his wife he'll talk to his boss about a raise, he's "downsized" from his job as an oil change mechanic. Stoppin' at the bar to get a drown his sorrows, he's reunited with his high school buddy Vince, an ex-con who works as a collector for a bookie.

After a couple of drinks, the two men wind up hangin' out with Colin & Violet, because they have money, and offer up various sums of cash for increasingly lewd and/or rude behavior.

And things just go downhill from there, as the two men continue with the games & pranks that up the ante as the night progresses.

For sure, this is my new favorite David Koechner movie. He plays Colin, the coke-snortin' host who is constantly throwin' fifties & hundreds around.

Ethan Embry is damn near unrecognizable as Vince.

Definitely one of the better movies that Drafthouse Films has acquired for distribution.
