Recently divorced, newly rich, and utterly miserable, Danny (Kevin Corrigan) would seem to be the perfect test subject for a definitive look at the relationship between money and happiness. Danny’s well-funded ennui is interrupted by a momentous trip to the local gym, where he meets self-styled guru/owner Trevor (Guy Pearce) and irresistibly acerbic trainer Kat (Cobie Smulders). Soon, their three lives are inextricably knotted, both professionally and personally. Writer/director Andrew Bujalski (Computer Chess, 2013) returns with a fun, intimate fable that’s utterly grounded in real life. As wrinkles turn into complications, then blow up into full-fledged issues, the talented ensemble keeps the pensive tone light and the complex plot breezy. Bujalski stops by to talk about his charming shaggy-dog tale that’s been hitting the gym: taut, limber, and powerful.
“ENCHANTING – WONDERFULLY ALIVE AND UNPREDICTABLE. Plus it’s funny as hell. Results manages to reinvent the rom-com.” – Bilge Ebari, New York Magazine
“KEVIN CORRIGAN IS SOMETHING OF A COMIC GENIUS. A pleasing romantic-comedy triangle. The triumph of ‘Results’ is that it pretends to be loose, lazy and lived-in when it’s actually disciplined, hard-working and IN ALMOST PERFECT SHAPE.” – A.O. Scott, NY Times
“AN IRRESISTABLE TALE. A love story full of twists and turns.” – Andrew O’Hehir, Salon
A TERRIFIC, VERY FUNNY NEW COMEDY. What’s really wonderful is director Buljaski’s sympathy for his characters.” – Ella Taylor, NPR
“One of the strangest and strongest of recent romantic triangles forms in the course of this lyrical, fanatically realistic comedy.” – Richard Brody, The New Yorker
