Editorial Reviews

Reunited friends find themselves the chief suspects of a murder mystery that seems oddly similar to a play they performed in high school. Minka Kelly joins Jason Dohring and Masi Oka in this outrageous comedy thriller that critics are calling "wildly entertaining" and "one of the funniest movies I've seen all year." View the Trailer:

I saw this film on the festival circuit this year and found myself laughing more and louder than I can recall doing in a movie theatre recently; this film and Seth MacFarlane's "Ted" are far and away the two funniest films I've seen all year. The screenplay deliriously twists and turns in ways you never see coming, and that only enhance the comedy. The performances are spot-on across the board, and I was stunned to learn after the screening that this was the director's first feature, given that the filmmaking was so assured, and with a very specific tone and voice that felt like it had been cultivated over time. I look forward to seeing more from him. Give yourself a fun night and check out "Searching for Sonny". I just ordered the blu-ray and am looking forward to seeing it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Movie! February 16, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I watched this because I recently started watching "Veronica Mars", which is a tv show Jason Dohring was in. I loved the movie! The storytelling was fantastic. I really liked the backstory info, as well as the narration. The acting was great, and the directing was also good. Would recommend to anyone looking for a laugh and a mystery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, underrated film June 21, 2013
By l l.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this because it starred Jason Dohring from Veronica Mars. Hadn't heard anything about it or read any reviews so I watched it without any expectations. Loved it, a quirky independent film, with interesting and memorable characters. The narrator, often overused in movies, was a good element here, adding to the comedic noir tone. Not perhaps for everybody, but those who can appreciate less mainstream films should enjoy this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars This was a quirky, enjoyable little film September 3, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
'Searching for Sonny' didn't take itself too seriously and viewers shouldn't either. If you're expecting a film grounded in reality and every day believability, well, you won't find it here. There was some humor, a little drama, a little action, but mostly it was filled with an offbeat absurdity that held a charm of its own. It wasn't a film noir or even a satire of one, but it had elements of such in a broader sense. I bought the film because I'm a huge Jason Dohring fan and it was nice seeing him again. If you're a fan of him, you'll enjoy the film. If you like offbeat quirky indie films you'll probably enjoy the film as well.

I saw Searching For Sonny at a film festival last April. It is a very funny movie. I loved every moment, every hilarious situations! The movie kept me on the edge of my seat with anticipation of what was going to happen next. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who want to have a good laugh. I am looking forward to adding it to my DVD collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally something exceptionally funny and original! January 8, 2013
By Paul
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie is a great example of how independent films are making a strong statement that quality can be just as good as the Hollywood level.
I haven't laughed this hard at a movie in a long, long time.
The two actors from Britanick are absolutely hilarious and steal the show!
Would definitely recommend this movie to everyone!

4.0 out of 5 stars Oddball movie is entertaining November 22, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I like Jason Dohring as an actor and that's why I bought this movie. It was different than I thought it would be, as it was quirky and not serious. Although you probably need an oddball sense of humor to like it--I enjoyed it and so did the family. Jason delivered in his acting, and showed he can do comedy as well as serious acting.

I wasn't sure at first, only watched it because of Veronica Mars, as Jason Dohring is in both. I liked him in Veronica Mars better, but this was kind of funny and turned out... Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars hectic and poorly written
Like Jason Dohring since Veronica Mars but could not finish this film. Needs a rewrite to make it a better film.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little out of the ordinary
A light... very light comedy.. Justin Dolhman , I think that is right I liked. His twin was quirky.. The story line , hm-m-m.. But just for fun, ok....

Dislike. It was horrible. I didn't like it at all. I only watched it because I was paying for it.
