Hanky Panky: Review. By Richard Schertzer.

Nick Roth is a promising young filmmaker, who certainly has a great career ahead of him but I would not put his latest film Hanky Panky on my resume, if I were him. The film feels like the start of a bad joke. What do you get when you put a few aliens and a guy with social anxiety in a room together?

The film centers around a socially anxious Sam, coming into a small winter cabin with the rest of his friends and family arriving later in the first act and somehow, Sam is friends with a talking napkin that becomes aroused whenever he cleans something up. 



The film combines aliens, a whodunit, romance, comedy and satirical sketch writing into one film and had all those elements together with no idea how to utilize them in a way that felt cohesive or even remotely entertaining. 

The movie feels like it’s just zig-zagging around like a chicken with its head cut off and makes no effort to make a decent pay off in the end. Whether that was Roth’s intention or it was purely accidental is something we may never know. 

With so many people and plot threads that don’t seem to interconnect properly, it seems like the film doesn’t even know what it wants to do.

Overall, this film is a conglomeration of every genre that seems lost in its own script and fails to make anything new in its execution.
