The Bronze (2015)

Kind of a cross between 2004’s “Napoleon Dynamite” and Comedy Central’s brilliantly demented sitcom “Strangers with Candy,” this indie comedy is worth a shot on a lazy Sunday. Melissa Rauch’s central character Hope is a one-note joke for the most part, but director Bryan Buckley makes the right decision by surrounding the character with top-notch supporting work from Gary Cole and Thomas Middleditch, who both bring humanity to the otherwise broad comedy. The result is the type of one-joke premise-based comedy that never really takes off but still has its moments, sort of like Gregg Araki’s 2007 stoner flick “Smiley Face.”

Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)
