About the Movie
After his engagement suddenly ends, Joshy and a few his friends decide to take advantage of what was supposed to be his bachelor party in Ojai, California. In their attempt to help Joshy deal with the recent turn of events, the guys turn the getaway into a raucous weekend filled with drugs, booze, debauchery, and hot tubs. Written and directed by Jeff Baena and featuring an ensemble cast of hilarious comedic talents—including Thomas Middleditch (HBO’s "Silicon Valley"), Adam Pally (TV’s "Happy Endings"), Alex Ross Perry (director of Queen of Earth), Nick Kroll (TV’s "The League"), Brett Gelman (TV’s "Married") and Jenny Slate (Obvious Child) — Jeff Baena’s sophomore feature is a wickedly amusing portrayal of male bonding and emotional incompetence.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Alcohol-induced shambling, cocaine-induced motor-mouthing and mushroom-induced melancholia are depicted with sobering accuracy.
Fresh: Baena delivers a quiet and largely plotless dramedy that walks the line between goofy bro comedy and mumblecore drama.
Rotten: One of the saddest comedies ever made about boys behaving badly at a bachelor party, "Joshy" offers a strange mix of elements that never quite add up.
Fresh: It's a fascinating depiction of the way men do -- or don't -- confront life's tragedies and traumas.

Possibly the most depressing Comedy of all Time
What the fudge was that?! Do you like to watch unsatisfying, depressing movies that allow you to wallow for days in other peoples' pity masked as humor? Yes? Then listen to Rotten Tomatoes and rent this gem. Hell, buy and watch it over and over as you half laugh half cry into your popcorn. There is just nothing in any way at all funny about a graphic suicide of a future spouse, made even less funny if her parents believe the would be husband murdered her and are hell bent on making him admit it. What a shame to gather such a lovely group of funny people and ruin the mood with a devastatingly depressing plotting and sub plot lines to boot. Yes, there were some laughs but the suicide and various marital issues of the other characters hung over the movie like a wet blanket. I have never seen Paul Riser be less funny, which was depressing by itself. I hope Adam (the only funny character) is right about time travel because I'd like to go back and time and have never wasted an evening watching this poor excuse for a comedy.
If i could give this movie less than 0 stars I would, almost fell asleep during it.
