Harry is having a very, very bad day. He returns home from an all-night drinking binge with his cousin Cecil to discover that his little dog Jolly—Harry’s one true love and the source of light in his dark, solitary life—has been murdered. Brokenhearted and beyond consolation, he vows to track down the dog’s murderer at any cost. Armed with a stockpile of firepower in the trunk of his car, he and Cecil embark on a frenzied, alcohol-fueled wild-goose chase, leaving a bloody path of destruction in their wake.
First-time director Chadd Harbold fuses just the right amount of violence and farce to concoct a fun, blood-spattered romp. With appearances by Elijah Wood, Kristen Wiig, Ryan Phillippe, Kevin Corrigan, and Bobby Moynihan, there is never a dull moment on their blurry rampage. Revenge for Jolly! proves that, when it comes to avenging the loss of a true love, nothing is sacred. –Tribeca Film Festival
