Plot Summary

In this offbeat indie comedy that premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, Stanford Law School dropout Jillian (Jess Weixler of TEETH) is hung-over - really hung-over - and now finds herself trapped in food-truck hell, doling out free samples of ice cream topped with extra attitude. Over the course of one crazy day, she encounters a cast of oddball characters, including a retired movie star (Tippi Hedren of THE BIRDS), last night's drunken hook-up (Jesse Eisenberg of SOCIAL NETWORK), a friend who dreams of serving ice cream pants-less (Jason Ritter of TV's PARENTHOOD), and, of course, her ex-fiancé. Will this day spent in a Los Angeles food truck wake Jillian from her aimless daze and make her realize that life doesn't stop just because you want it to? Also starring: Halley Feiffer (TV's BORED TO DEATH, THE SQUID AND THE WHALE).

Fresh: A modest but pleasant small-budget movie with two bits of laziness in the script, but one particularly sweet performance that makes up for them. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Jun 7, 2013

Rotten: "Free Samples" is a film about wasting time, and it feels like it. – Amy Nicholson, Los Angeles Times, May 30, 2013

Fresh: Weixler is a delight, and director Tom Gammill captures the right level of deadpan to pull this off. – Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, Jun 6, 2013

Rotten: An angry indie that favors hollow ridicule over credibility. – R. Kurt Osenlund, Slant Magazine, Jun 6, 2013

Customer Reviews

Surpassed my expectations

This is one of those films that you probably haven't heard of, but by the time you're done watching it, you'll be telling all your friends and wishing you'd heard of it sooner.

Talented up and coming film maker

Full of funny moments. Great performances. Loved all the characters. Lotsa one liners I'm gonna steal. Nice subtle flow to the main characters story arc. Well directed. Id be interested in seeing another from him. Nicely shot as well.

Indie at its best

I saw this at a film festival in Denver in a room full of fans. Everybody was into it. The characters are real, the situations are cringe-inducing funny and sad and true. And if you dig low budget movies made by people who care then this is the kind of film you'll really like. The trailer faithfully represents the humor, and I'd encourage you to give it a try.
