Hollywood comedy? It's just a big joke


I Give It a Year is billed as an anti-rom-com and its director, Dan Mazer was on fine anti-Hollywood form at the Loco film festival: “Hollywood films don't make me laugh. There's only ever one funny film a year. Take The Watch, which starred Ben Stiller and Jonah Hill and yet they conspired to make it not funny. Spectacularly so.”

Over to you, Hollywood.
