Shout! Factory has set a March 31 home release date for Standing Up, Falling Down, a comedy film directed by Matt Ratner and written by Peter Hoare.
Starring Billy Crystal, Ben Schwartz, and Eloise Mumford, the film premiered at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival and will be available to home audiences on Blu-ray Disc, DVD, and digital on demand.
After years of chasing his stand-up comedy dream in Los Angeles, 34-year-old Scott (Schwartz) crashes and burns. Left with little money and a failed career, he has no choice but to regroup and return to his parent’s house in Long Island. Trying to figure out what to do next, he pines after his ex (Mumford), a successful photographer who had since married a former mutual friend. During a night out at the bar, he meets an eccentric dermatologist (Crystal) who, having regrets of his own, helps Scott find the courage to face his failures.
Bonus features include the theatrical trailer, audio commentary with director Ratner and stars Crystal and Schwartz, and a three-part look at the making of Standing Up, Falling Down.
