Review On FRIENDS WITH GUNS


Cynthia Citron

Registered Critic


Shannon and Josh are having dinner with new friends Leah and Danny. Abetted by abundant wine, they declare themselves "best friends" and make a plan to celebrate the upcoming holiday, Thanksgiving, together. The mood changes abruptly, however, when Danny mentions that he has a gun collection locked up in his garage. At that point Josh jumps up and cancels not only the plans for Thanksgiving but the friendship as well. Josh, as it turns out, is violently antipathetic to guns and the people who use them.
