A Futile and Stupid Gesture

Biography Comedy


The story of Doug Kenney, one of the creators of National Lampoon.

"A Futile And Stupid Gesture" is a funny walk down memory lane that flashes back to the emergence of new wave comedy. A stellar cast portrays some of the biggest names in entertainment history, as we are shown the inner workings of creating a seminal publication with a slightly disturbed mind. Much like the life it is reflecting upon, this film shines fast and bright and is over far too soon. National treasure.
