A Better You is an uproarious improvised comedy in the tradition of Best in Show and Curb Your Enthusiasm. Directed by and co-starring Matt Walsh (co-founder of the Upright Citizens Brigade, co-star of Veep), the film delves into the strange life of hypnotherapist Dr. Ron Knight (Brian Huskey, Neighbors). Knight's "Wake Up! Wake Up!" program is a great success, but it comes with a cost. His wife Margo (Morgan Walsh) forces him to go into marriage counseling, where he butts heads with a real doctor, Dr. Milner (Joe Lo Truglio, Brooklyn Nine-Nine). Thrown into a midlife crisis, Dr. Ron looks to salvation at whoever is closest at hand, crying on the shoul- der of day laborer Hugo (Horatio Sanz, SNL), while still ministering to his growing queue of patients. They include the cigarette-starved Tamara (Natasha Leggero), a confused high school football coach (Rob Huebel, The Descendants) and a stuttering voiceover artist (Nick Kroll, The League). Then there's his unwanted attraction to Lindsay (Erinn Hayes), who just wants to stop biting her nails. On top of everything else, his snarky neighbor Joel (Andrew Daly, Review) is leading a campaign to ban his patients from the block. Dr. Knight will need more than therapy to stay sane. A Better You is a hilarious satire of the middle class, middle aged, and lower than middle intellect."
