Format: DVD
Directed by and starring Jenna Fischer who most people will know from her role in the American version of The Office tv series. Her very natural acting abilities make it very easy to forget that the documentary LolliLove you are watching, is actually a skillfully scripted and directed film. Fischer wrote her directorial debut with Peter Alton and (uncredited) her real-life husband James Gunn (writer of the Scooby Doo films, Dawn of the Dead remake and Tromeo and Juliet and writer/director of Slither) . Gunn also plays her husband in the film as well, and as he has shown briefly in Tromeo & Juliet, his acting is of the same lifelike quality as Jenna's.
Lollilove is about those people who try to do the right thing by devoting themselves to a charity project for all the wrong reasons and without any genuine knowledge or understanding of the badly treated individuals in our society they try to help, and even worse so: without any interest in them apart from the opportunity to show off as a better person themselves. And the saddest thing is that they don't even know or realize this themselves.
A very dark comedy that is never too funny and sometimes gut-wrenchingly showing the mental poverty of those who are looked upon as being well off.
With this film as her debut as a film director, it should only be common sense to be confident that Jenna Fischer has a rich career ahead of her.
The feature film is done justice with a rich collection of extra's on Troma's dvd presentation that would make Criterion proud.

Low-budget in the best possible way July 9 2006
By Sean Harding - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Going into viewing LolliLove, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I admit that I had some concerns that the positive reviews were just coming from fans of The Office who weren't being very objective. But that fear was quickly laid to rest -- this is a very clever and funny film, and I can honestly say that I would enjoy it just as much if I'd never heard of any of the actors. It's very well written (or written/improvised), and the actors do a great job of seeming completely sincere while saying ridiculous things.

Lollilove is definitely a low-budget production, and it shows in some ways. The sound isn't great in some scenes, and the video quality isn't up to what you may be used to seeing in major studio DVDs (shot on film). But that really ended up adding to my enjoyment of the film, rather than detracting from it. This really feels like a documentary, rather than a studio movie posing as a documentary.

The thing that amazes me most about LolliLove is how much talent it really shows. It's easy to look at big budget Hollywood films and think, "I could do that if I had millions of dollars to work with." But LolliLove was made with almost no money, almost no equipment and a relatively inexperienced cast and crew. I look at LolliLove and I can't fool myself into thinking I could have made it -- the only things they had that I don't are amazing creativity and talent.

I think LolliLove is worth checking out not just for fans of Jenna Fischer or James Gunn, but for anyone who likes the mockumentary style of comedy.

Fantastic! A mocumentary that both entertains and makes a point! Feb. 8 2006
By NT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This mocumentary is so well done that I found myself having an emotional reaction to it, as if it were a true documentary. Funny, filled with irony and yet socially relevant, this movie is one that everyone should see and will thoroughly enjoy.

Uproarious, Witty Mockumentary March 16 2006
By Jody - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This Mockumentary is written, directed and stars Jenna Fischer. Where do you know Jenna from? Why, The Office! I admit I viewed this DVD because I love Jenna on The Office and Lollilove did not disappoint at all. It is similar in the mockumentary sense, but also very different. It is hilariously done and Jenna & her husband, James Gunn, are spot on. There are also great cameos from Linda Cardellini and Jason Segel from Freaks and Geeks.

The context of the mockumentary is a couple who wants to start a charity but the couple (Jenna and James) are somewhat shallow and self-centered. The idea they come up with involves handing out lollipops with uplifting mesages to the homeless and of course being self-serving by featuring James artwork.

LOLLILOVE is a hysterical, raunchy ride that feels like real life! Feb. 11 2006
By Joanystar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I had the privilege of seeing LOLLILOVE at the 2005 Slamdance Festival in Park City, Utah.

I was surprised at how much the audience laughed during the film. Of course, all of the free-flowing ale may have had something to do with that.

The crowd was hysterical! The film is done in a cool home-video style that feels very real. This is one reason that the film has such a fresh feeling to it.

Jenna Fischer and James Gunn do such a great job and are both SO funny in the film. This was a first-time directing venture for Jenna which turned out well. I had the privilege of being in the cast and working with Jenna, so I got to experience her directing style, firsthand. Jenna is a very relaxed director, which allows the comedy and improv. to develop into MORE funny stuff! I knew, at the time, that this film was a labor of love being done with a tiny budget. So, I wasn't sure of what the final film would look like. I think everyone involved is thrilled with the outcome!

I play Kathy Rohl, a "benefactor" of Jenna's misguided charity work!

See LOLLILOVE, if you can!

Loved it! June 17 2009
By Jonathan Hart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I finally was able to check this out a few days ago. It hasn't been available on netflix, but it just went available to watch. I'm a fan of James Gunn AND Jenna Fisher (then, Gunn), and was surprised to find that she wrote and directed it. It's funny how much of her sense of humor seems to translate to The Office (of which she currently plays Pam Beesley). It's subtle and funny and hilariously absurd. The movie is about a rich yuppie couple who decide to "give back" and make their mark by becoming philanthropists, helping the homeless by giving them lollipops wrapped in James' "art." Of course being selfish, deluded, idiots, Jenna and James (they use their real names as their character's names) end up fighting and growing apart over various problems with their bizarre idea. Eventually they reconcile due to a hilarious, possibly actual? bum, ya gotta see it. Lollilove is definetly worth checking out :) Also possibly Freaks and Geeks era Linda Cardellini and Jason Segal pop up for an awesomely awkward lunch with Jenna and James!
