Shot on-location in Boston on 16 mm film, the movie is predominately cast with unprofessional actors engaging in realistic discourse. Main character Marnie is played by first-time actress Kate Dollenmayer, a student at CalArts who previously worked on Richard Linklater's Waking Life. Marnie goes about her everyday life with a conflicted love for her friend Alex Christian Rudder and a dispassionate attitude toward her job as a temp office worker. While at work she meets the nervous Mitchell, played by the director. Funny Ha Ha was shown at the 2003 IFP Los Angeles Film Festival.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Andrea LeVasseur
Even with the homemade look and feel of a student film, Andrew Bujalski's Funny Ha Ha manages to be a fairly engaging romantic comedy despite its obviously low production values. Kate Dollenmayer makes a pleasant protagonist as Marnie, a twentysomething college graduate with a sincere smile and regular problems. Her cycle of drinking, eating, and working is a comfortable background for the main romantic plot. The rest of the unknown cast of nonactors stammer through their improvised dialogue, but at least the bad acting is low key. The off-the-cuff comic moments feel natural and the painfully awkward moments are lightly developed. For instance, when Marnie runs into Alex and his new wife at the grocery store, the nervous energy is all too familiar. Similarly, Mitchell's problematic courting of Marnie is full of the tense, talky banter of real life. Bujalski seems to have a knack for observing friendly meandering conversation while not deviating from the story too far. Other than the slow pace, lack of musical score, and abrupt ending, Funny Ha Ha is a smart and unassuming little independent film that doesn't insult its audience by trying to be anything else.

    Funny Ha Ha

    Funny Ha Ha" is a smartly observed, unpretentious, and unconventional comedy of manners

    Funny Ha Ha is Neither!

    This horrifying spectacle received the outlandish praise of being akin to Cassavetes. Granted, some of Cassavetes' movies are less good than his others, but not even 'Husbands' deserves comparison to this mindless gibberish. If you can tell the difference between 'realistic dialog' and 'unwritten dialog,' please stay far far away from this one. If you like movies about characters who only say 'like but so yeah and uh-huh and I'm like oh yeah' for 2 hours, buy it now.
