review by
Mike Haberfelner

Bruce (Michael Bugard) is a washed up stand-up comic who has long lost his actual edge and since tried to make up for it by being overly offensive and wannabe provocative - without being actually funny. Fact is though he hates the world, hates being lonely, and hates still living with his parents (Lou Cariffe, Arlene Arnone Bibbs), which is why he drowns his sorrow in insulting his audience and doing too much drugs - that is until he meets washed up musician Darling (Anita Nicole Brown), a woman who hates the world just as much as he does, but who takes an immediate liking in him, who shares his interest in vintage films and drugs, and who has an insatiable sex drive - so it's no big surprise the two of them marry soon. Everything goes really fine after ... until she's killed during a hold-up at their favourite video store - and according to an agreement he's giving her cunnilingus while she's dying. After she's gone, things go downhill with Bruce, to the point where he accidently shoots himself and survives only thanks to a minor miracle. Then he meets Sandy (Kaylee Williams), a woman who claims to be a fan of his, and before you know it the two land in bed - but she just is no Darling, is not really into drugs, sex or vintage movies, and really only pushes Bruce further down the spiral ...

 

Routines sure is a quite unusual movie as it (at least in parts) is as offensive and provocative (and thus sometimes not likeable) as its lead character, but at the same time it shows great understanding and compassion for Bruce, and however misguided his choices may be, the film refrains from judging or just turning everything into a freak show. And even if Bruce the stand-up comic might not be especially funny, the film is carried by a weird kind of oddly infectuous gallows humour, which at times switches to utter tragedy (and vice versa) at the drop of a hat. And all of that makes for a very unusual movie - and a fascinating watch at that!
