    Last night I went to see the charming film about improv comedy and comedians Don't Think Twice.  It's a fresh, funny and ironically somewhat sad look at the inside world of their art.  Their camaraderie and joy in making the film were evident. 

    It's a fine film about a group of comics, and what happens when one breaks out, leaving the others behind. The repercussions and dynamics of this high-wire act of performing are beautifully told.
