This film could be viewed as the surprising or gracious return of Jon Favreau to more low budget character film pastures. A fitting return to a man with a good touch to comedy, drama and actor relationships.
What this film can't be viewed as is a sure fire hit or at least so it seems. As the trailer is cut and sold as any other film out there. Showing off the whole film's structure from beginning to end. Additionally the taco truck angle in the trailer, has been done already a couple of times. Notably in the film "the Five Year Engagement". Making me not feel the joy to Favreau and his return back to indie productions at all.
