Film Notes: Doctor's 'Broke' film back for another run
Friday, June 18, 2010
Dr. Ravi Godse's "If It Ain't Broke, Break It" returns today for its third Pittsburgh run.
The feel-good comedy, made in Pittsburgh and showing the city and its actors off to excellent effect, is about a man who is told he's dying, so he tries to improve the lives of a half-dozen people.
His efforts backfire in the movie that's anything but a downer and stars celebrities such as Richard Kind, Rondell Sheridan, Steve Guttenberg, Sabrina Bryan and Bill Nunn. Local flavor is provided by the likes of Godse, Adrienne Wehr, Patrick Jordan, Dave Petti, Laurie Klatscher and Aaron Kleiber and, in cameo, Franco Harris.
The movie will play at the Melwood Screening Room at Pittsburgh Filmmakers, 477 Melwood Ave., Oakland., at 7 and 9 tonight; 3, 5 and 7 p.m. Saturday; 3 and 5 p.m. Sunday; and 8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday.
Dr. Godse expects to be there tonight and Saturday and Sunday nights to field questions. See www.moviebroke.com for details.
