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.

'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 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.

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.

Searching for Sonny was dull and lackluster. The plot was actually interesting, but the acting ruined it. If they were trying to mix comedy, drama and mystery it fell short. I think they were trying to get a Phillip Marlow feel and well, it just didn't quite hit the mark. Considering there was nothing else to watch on the alphabet channels we chose this.

I would recommend it to folks who have some time to kill. Honestly, it put my husband to sleep. I soldiered on to the very end, but was disappointed. Make up your own mind. It is included with Amazon Prime, so at least I didn't have any additional out of pocket expense to watch it. Sorry, if you are a Jason Dohring fan you will probably like it. It certainly wasn't JD's finest hour.

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!

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 better. He plays the opposite kind of character, which was fun to watch and his tag along gang. It was much better towards the middle and end.

This was better than I thought it would be and yet still not good enough to keep my total attention. I loved the cast and I loved the satirical-noir feel to it. However, the whole thing was very predictable, which made me want either a better cast or more satire.
