Adam Pally and Sarah Burns play a couple of grown-up nerds who decide they’d like to get busy, and adopt bold new personas to help make that happen. (A leather jacket for him, garish makeup for her, plenty of booze for both.) The results are awkward and cringeworthy and bizarrely successful, but not at bit plausible or coherent. It’s clear throughout that everyone involved had a grand time making the thing. (And the end-credits goof reel proves it.) But while it’s true that many of the scenes would be hard to perform without breaking into laughter, it’s often difficult to share in the mirth. Call it hermetically sealed humor. (A great exception is a disappointed date’s list of reasons for why she wants to depart Pally’s company.) Directed by Don Argott (As the Palaces Burn) and Sheena M. Joyce (The Atomic States of America). (2015) — Matthew Lickona
