By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Aug. 25 2011
Format: DVD
Starting your own business is risky, painful and full of stumbles. And that's what How To Make It In America is all about -- a clever little dramedy about three different businesses that are trying to get off the ground, and the highs and lows they encounter along the way. It's a little quirky, gritty, and riddled with romantic problems.

Mild-mannered Ben Epstein (Bryan Greenberg) and his street-smart buddy Cam Calderon (Victor Rasuk) decide to start a denim clothing line called Crisp, but run into a bunch of problems -- they have little money, one investor, no business plan and a disastrous sample. Even as their dreams seem to crash and burn, they discover a new business road has just opened up -- if they can keep their hands on the merchandise.

In the meantime, Ben's ex-girlfriend Rachel (Lake Bell) has a wealthy new boyfriend named Darren, which might be good for her designing agency -- but bad for her personal life. And Cam's cousin Rene (Luis Guzmán), who has just gotten out of prison, is going legit with an energy drink called Rasta Monsta -- which is encountering the same sorts of problems as Crisp.

"How To Make It In America" is all about pursuing the American Dream in the 21st century: you need opportunity, street smarts, connections, and lots of hard work. It's not quite as brilliant as some of HBO's other shows, but it does have an endearing, gritty earnestness -- and it reminds you that for every successful business that takes off, there are dozens of failed ones.

Along the way, there are lots of dimly-lit New York nightclubs, shady street venders and warehouses piled high with vintage T-shirts. The writing is fun and often clever ("Edie, do you know where I can find some X?

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring 20s Somethings Not Worth Watching June 23 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

The longer I watched, the more bored I was. The acting was fine as was the production quality. But the plot was missing and I didn't care about any of the characters. Perhaps this is what is in store for our future - millenials who think that just existing is worth a television show.
5.0 out of 5 stars You gotta see this, great comedy June 10 2016

Reading the description of the series, I was like, meh, might be OK, so I'll add it to my watch list. Well, it was more than OK, it was hilarious! Much better than I expected. If they continue past season 2 on Prime, I'll watch it!
