Adventures of Serial Buddies is a 2011 black comedy film written and directed by Keven Undergaro.[1]

Synopsis[edit]

Gregory is a Catholic who is determined to rid the world of evil people, Gary assembles trophies and wants to kill possible trophy winners, Graham serves as Gary's understudy and will stop at nothing to become a trophy maker himself, while Vinny Van Go has an affinity for visiting accident scenes with the purpose of making friends. These idiots are forced to join forces and embark on a riotous road trip journey—which crosses paths with everything from skinheads and frat jocks to bikers and babes. And don't forget about the clowns! [2]

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

The idea for the film was inspired by a man director Undergaro was friends with, who unknowingly turned out to be a sociopath. Shooting was completed in a brisk four-week span, and the film is known for discovering actress Beth Behrs before landing her breakout role on CBS' 2 Broke Girls.[3]

It is also credited with being the first "serial killer buddy comedy".[4]

Reception[edit]

John Campea of Collider Movie News has described the film as "Dexter meets Dumb and Dumber."[5]

Critic Scott Mantz has called the film "seriously funny. Wacky twisted fun." And entertainment journalist Ben Lyons has said the film is a "fearless farce for fans of funny."[6]
