Somebody Up There Likes Me stars Nick Offerman as the sidekick of a young slacker who bumbles and fails his way through romantic encounters. Film Comment noted that “the film remains true to the Byington spirit – snapshots of life bursting with disappointment and desperation, dished up tongue in cheek, laced with offbeat wit, and offered in a spirit of fun.”


Synopsis

Filmmaker Bob Byington makes wonderfully deadpan, off-beat comedies and has relied on a consistent stable of collaborators and new discoveries from Austin, where he has lived for his entire career. Somebody Up There Likes Me stars Nick Offerman as the sidekick of a young slacker played by a Byington discovery, Keith Poulson, who bumbles and fails his way through romantic encounters. Film Comment noted that “the film remains true to the Byington spirit – snapshots of life bursting with disappointment and desperation, dished up tongue in cheek, laced with offbeat wit, and offered in a spirit of fun.”
