Review: Little Blue Pill

Score:C+

Director:Aaron Godfred

Cast:Aaron Kuban, Adam Carr, Rosie Tish, Grold Wunstel

Running Time:93.00

Rated:R

Erectile dysfunction jokes are a dime a dozen, especially when it comes to cinema.  So when I heard about Aaron Godfred's Little Blue Pill, a film detailing the misadventures that can happen when a Viagra-like medication is mistaken for Aleve. I wasn't all that curious.  Luckily Godfred is able to rely on the talent of star Aaron Kuban, who single handedly kept my interest with his stellar facial expressions and comedic timing.

The script handles an age-old issue, and it does possess some fun, quirky scenes that more than steal the show.  The best lines are given to the three leading actors, leaving the villains of the film to fend for themselves as they portray overly cliche and stereotyped characters.  

To be honest, the scenes within the testing facility are embarrassing as each of the actors intentionally overacts their way through each generic piece of dialogue.  I get the point that director Aaron Godfred was trying to make, but driving home that point for more than ninety minutes was a bit excessive.

Overall I feel that Little Blue Pill is an adequate debut film from Mr. Godfred.  Made for almost no money, the feature is humorous in just enough ways to be passable.  While I don't see it as a multiple watch, it would make for a fantastic viewing party with friends and a bit of alcohol.

About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
