San Diego Benefit Screening

The San Diego Film Critics Society (SDFCS) is presenting a benefit screening of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival Jury Prize Award-nominated film Douchebag on October 19. Proceeds from this benefit will go to the group’s educational fund for scholarships. Lead actors Andrew Dickler and Ben York Jones -- plus the filmmakers --are planning to attend and to participate in a Q/A session at this event, which is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Landmark’s Hillcrest Cinemas. A ten-dollar per ticket donation is requested.

I haven't seen Douchebag yet, but noted film critic Leonard Maltin calls it “smart, surprising and funny!” He claims that “Hollywood could learn a few lessons from this indie sleeper.”

The film follows two long estranged brothers who embark on an eventful journey before one of them gets married. Their riotous road trip starts out as one kind of search (for an old flame) and ends up as another more important one.
