Literally

By Matteo J. Mosterts | Comedy
In a world where 'literallies' fly unpunished -- there's a secret force determined to end the trend.

Two law enforcement agents crash a party in hopes of catching a potential criminal and perpetrator. His crime? Poor usage of language — he’s used and abused the adverb “literally” wrongly, and needs to be stopped. But what looks like a harmless evening of drugs, drinks and fun goes awry when these “adverb police” hit upon a few wrinkles of their own.

Director Matteo J. Mosterts has crafted a memorably offbeat comedy short that brings to life a decidedly strange premise. In real life, people do use the word “literally” wrongly, but the film turns this common error into a near-crime against humanity, to hilarious effect.

The comedy comes from sharp, witty writing and performances that truly are committed to a passion for proper grammar — these language cops are definitely not messing around. The timing and chemistry between the central characters are excellent, making for a highly enjoyable watch.

Beyond the writing and performance, what elevates and makes “Literally” work are its strong visuals and a unique mix of tone, injecting comedy into the sometimes self-serious tropes of a cop action-drama. With true panache and the willingness to “go there,” the film will makes viewers laugh — and “literally” provides a lesson on the importance of proper adverb usage.
