A veritable who's who of recent television, Not That Funny stars Tony Hale (Arrested Development), Brigid Brannagh (Army Wives), Timothy V. Murphy (Appaloosa) and K Callan (Lois & Clark) in a comedy about how far we'll go for love. Tony Hale gives a great turn as Stefan, an affable 40-ish fellow who by his own admission is alone but not lonely. That all changes when Hayley, weary from a high-pressure job with a self-absorbed boss/boyfriend, returns to her hometown to visit her aging grandmother, who Stefan lives with and cares for. Overhearing Hayley tell her grandmother that all she wants is a guy who makes her laugh, Stefan sets out to become funny and win her heart. Unfortunately, Stefan is not that funny, but his attempt leads to important transformations for both of them. This sweet, humble film is both humorous and smart, and speaks to the importance of family, friendship and truth.
