Chix Chat on Film Review: Happy to play along.
15 March 2013 | by EmmaDinkinsSee all my reviews

We Cause Scenes is probably one of the happiest films that I have seen in forever, and the fact that it is a documentary makes it even more extraordinary. I sat with a perpetual smile on my face throughout most of this film about the captivating impact that Charlie Todd has made on the world by bringing his special talent for improvisation to the biggest stage in the world, his city of New York in any and every way imaginable. It's always interesting to see how something phenomenal originates and grows to become acceptable worldwide. I may not be as worldly as I think that I am, but when the saga began with an impersonation of Ben folds, I was sitting there thinking, 'Who is Ben Folds?'. Subsequently, I have Googled him and am now up to date. This story makes you think of how much better the world could be if only others could find a way to keep people working together and having fun. The really amazing thing is that I recall when the 'Men Without Pants on the Subway' prank was covered by the media. But had no knowledge of the relationship with NBC that provided for the great production quality of several other pranks. This documentary was inspiring in that it shows that you can do what you love, inspire others and bring people together. It was an added treat at the screening to have the director Matt Adams present, and to learn that it took him five and a half years to complete this project because of having so much footage to comb through to get a good representation of what it took to get to today for Charlie Todd in his journey through Improv. It was fascinating to see the U2 prank played out and how passionate people are about their musicians especially given that the songs were out of key and the crowds were still wowed. As in any situation in life there are haters. Seeing how Charlie was vilified when trying to give someone a gift that their talent may have not rendered on its own just gave some truth to the saying that no good deed goes unpunished. Fortunately, we get to see Charlie Todd come back from the setback to a place where he could control his art and his destiny. I hope that the Improv Everywhere phenomena continues to grow because the originator of this feat is an artistic genius.
