Margarita Happy Hour (R)
Passport Pictures
Official Site
Director: Ilya Chaiken
Producers: Michael Ellenbogen and Susan Leber
Written by: Ilya Chaiken
Cast: Elenor Hutchins, Larry Fessenden, Holly Ramos, Barbara Sicuranza, Amanda Vogel

Rating: out of 5


The party was over long ago, and Zelda (Hutchins) came out with a baby girl to boot. As a struggling twenty-something graphic artist, Zelda works as a porn magazine illustrator and shares a loft with several friends and addicts.

The bright light of her day is girl talk over half-price margaritas with her four mommy friends. These scenes are the highlights of the film as they are composed with real-life sincerity and humor.

Underlying tensions grow with Zelda’s live-in boyfriend Max (Fessenden) as he becomes attracted to Zelda’s friend Natali (Ramos). Zelda begins to feel stifled trying to maintain her sexy party life with the added responsibilities of motherhood and finally seeks change.

hybridCinema Ratings Guide:

Take a pal and pay full price for both tickets.

It’s worth a full-price ticket.

It’s worth a matinee ticket.

Wait for video rental.

Check out the video from the library, if you must.

While we would never encourage anyone to destroy a video...
