Hello My Name is Dick Licker
(Brady Hall, 2011, 75 min, Seattle, WA)

Saturday, Sep 29 at 07:00PM
Rich Winthrop is a likable if slightly neurotic high school student whose mom is engaged to an effete and personality-deficient man with the last name Licker. Realizing that his life is about to be scarred by re-branding with the name "Dick Licker," he enlists his smart-aleck friend Chad to devise a plot sabotaging his mother's marriage.
Writer and director Brady Hall takes potty mouth to an Aaron Sorkin-esque level as Rich and Chad exchange barbs slathered in dizzyingly complex references to human anatomy and derogatory put downs. In the course of executing their despicable plot, they enlist the help of a psychotic ex-Special Forces vet and a reprobate lawyer. One absurd turn follows another as the story becomes evermore cartoonish, and Rich's convoluted plan spins out of his control. Embracing and lampooning the archetypal high-school teen movie, Hall crafts a laugh-out-loud comedy with a memorable name. This film includes partial nudity and adult language.
