Hang Time (2019)36331
Hang Time: Directed by Casey Zilbert. With Hayden J. Weal, Nick Davies, Gemma Easton-Knight, Steve Barr. Three 20-something friends get some much-needed hang time when a cancelled wedding sees them spend a long weekend together on a beautiful vineyard… with all the wine intended for the wedding… the runaway bride’s crazy uncle … and a beautiful young woman bringing a little sexual healing to the jilted groom. Inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s Fiesta; the Sun Also Rises, Hang Time is a wine-fuelled comedy for the new “lost generation”: Millennials. Balancing “booze and bros” humour with candid character drama, this film is as real as it is ridiculous, proving once and for all that nothing heals a broken heart like good wine, good friends, and a damn good time.
“Hereu0026#39;s a long moment of young adult Australasian angst and insecurity overlay-ed with a generic north-Americanesque teenage-style-of-humor, and laced with a few poignant wee bff moments. Unfortunately, it is billed as a comedy: none of the characters (nor their lines) is remotely funny although the tall, built, handsome u0026quot;Antsu0026quot; character makes a good go of it as well as providing male eye candy in underwear… again… and again. Perhaps the script needed a plot and clever dialogue – just a suggestion. A weekend at a picturesque rural setting out of range of wifi service provides an unlikely but seemingly necessary premise for the millennials to verbally interact about verbal interaction. I somehow ended up feeling I had just been in the most stunning situation I could ever imagine… and nothing happened. Good effort from the young cast.”
