THE COMMENTS is a cunning social commentary about today ‘s Hollywood, where big screen success is often accompanied by online back-stabbing. The short film skewers the curiously modern phenomenon of online shaming as it plays out through the comments sections of media websites: If you don’t have anything nice to say, write it anonymously online. The comedy short stars Paul Scheer (THE LEAGUE, DADDY’S HOME), Kristen Schaal (THE LAST MAN ON EARTH, FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS), Ken Marino (WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER, BURNING LOVE), Milo Ventimiglia (HEROES, THAT’S MY BOY), Beverly D’Angelo (VACATION), Natasha Leggero (ANOTHER PERIOD, LET ‘S BE COPS), Bobby Lee (MADTV), Charlie Saxton (HUNG, COOPER BARRETT’S GUIDE TO SURVIVING LIFE) and Theo Von (NO OFFENSE). THE COMMENTS was written and directed by Jim & Brian Kehoe. The Kehoe brothers’ Blacklist script, CHERRIES, is being produced by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg (NEIGHBORS, THIS IS THE END, THE NIGHT BEFORE) and directed by Kay Cannon (PITCH PERFECT 1&2, NEW GIRL, 30 ROCK). THE COMMENTS was produced by David Kang, Ross Otterman, Tristan Drew and J.P. McMahon, in conjunction with A Common Thread, Integrated Productions and Therapy Studios. The comedy short includes three 2015 Emmy-nominated crew members (Jeff Fuller, Jenny Eagan and Christian Hoffman) and one 2015 Emmy winner (Jeff Fuller). Award-winning cinematographer Maz Makhani handled DP duties. Please see the full list of credits at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5011864/
