Information and Film Reviews for Punchline the Movie

Staff rating


Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

A look at the lives of stand-up comics, following the career ups-and-downs of an embittered professional funny-man and a frustrated housewife hitting the stage for the first time. Some very funny and touching moments and some not-so-funny and touching as the movie descends into melodrama without a cause.
