Jeunes riches, Jenna et James forment un couple qui pense avoir trouvé une idée pour répondre aux problèmes des sans-abri : Lollilove. Des sucettes qui seront distribuées à tous les sans-domicile fixe. Les friandises seront couvertes d’un emballage illustré par les soins de James...
The superficial do-gooder impulse is eviscerated with spot-on satire in “LolliLove,” a chuckle-packed and satisfyingly tasteless mockumentary in which a prosperous young Hollywood couple (real-life spouses Jenna Fischer and James Gunn) endeavor to help the homeless. Cheerfully incorporating their own wedding footage and we’re-dead-serious-but-just-kidding personas, Fischer and Gunn are the bantamweight Gena Rowlands and John Cassavetes of their generation. Compact and irreverent pic is a treat for anyone who’s ever looked askance at celeb altruism, as well as fans of Fischer (“The Office”) and Gunn (“Slither”).
The satire is razor edged as we watch these oblivious nitwits inform the audience about homelessness and other social issues. The vapid philanthropy is contrasted perfectly against their personal self-interest and aggrandisement. What makes the humor work is that they honestly believe that this will help; that this – lollipops for the homeless – will truly make the world a better place. These aren’t bad people but they are hilariously completely self-absorbed.
