19. “The Climb” – Real-life pals Michael Angelo Covino and Kyle Marvin star in a “Sideways” (2004)-like comedy on an indie budget about two loveable losers who wrestle with life in Upstate New York. Actually, Covino – who directed the picture – had enough cash to film in France as well. His character – Mike – isn’t very amiable because he regularly sabotages his best buddy Kyle (Marvin), but hey, what are friends for? “The Climb”, with an awfully witty script and a pitch-perfect supporting cast, proves that friendship is sometimes a rocky ride.
⭐⭐⭐ 1/2 out of ⭐⭐⭐⭐
