Even those who find the script's contrivances absurd may deem it diverting enough, for a third-hand story of obsessive competition.
The characters at the black heart of this bleak comedy are consumed by their need for a rare record, but none of their passion translates to the audience.
Although the film mines big laughs from the rivals' single-mindedness, it wisely resists ever becoming full-fledged wacky.
It's primarily a showcase for two young actors, Grant Rosenmeyer and Ronald L. Conner, who succeed in making the slight premise more entertaining than it warrants.
A moderately pleasant movie that you keep wishing had a bigger budget and one more script re-write to develop more of its potential.
Had it dug a bit deeper, it might have been something more than the overall pleasant entertainment vehicle that it is.
Despite the 80-minute run time, Chasing the Blues is a nice addition to blues-centered films.
The film's pleasures are small ones, but they're perfectly pitched.
[Rosenmeyer and Conner are] quick to endear themselves to us so we can look past any hiccups and let their sitcom antics sustain a brisk sub-80-minute runtime.
A promising obsessive record-collecting premise and milieu squandered
