The Doorman

Doorman_2 "The Doorman" is a thinly written indie comedy--it's only 79 minutes long--that will have you kicking yourself for wasting whatever time and money you spent to watch it. Newcomer Lucas Akoskin plays Eurotrash Trevor, a narcissistic Manhattan doorman wallowing in the only somewhat glamorous lifestyle of serving as judge to who will or won't get in to the chic nightspots where he stands guard. Designed as a mockumentary, a film crew follow Trevor to capture his constant gab about how great he is and what it takes to be such a successful object of desire—he fancies himself a fashion model as well. Travor makes Kathy Griffin look like the Queen of England by comparison. The movie never finds a story, and its would-be humor falls flat as an amateur comic doing his first stand-up performance.

Not Rated. 86 mins. (D) (One Star)
