I Know Jake Gyllenhaal is Going to Fuck My Girlfriend

Production /

After Sean and his girlfriend watch a Jake Gyllenhaal movie, Sean suspects his girlfriend has a crush on the movie star; but as Sean’s suspicion grows, his fear seems to manifest their fateful encounter

Damn Ryan Gosling and Jake Gyllenhaal, they seem to be ruining relationships one at a time. Sean Wing is a writer (/ actor) who finally got the guts to put this obvious observation on film. With the help from director Nino Mancuso, this absurd film takes us on a paranoiac-al ride after Sean and his girlfriend watch a Jake Gyllenhaal movie. Sean suspects his girlfriend has a crush on the movie star; but as Sean’s suspicion grows, his fear seems to manifest their fateful encounter.

Its mainly about paranoia, which has run pretty deep in my life. I don’t like to say too much about it cause I like for everyone to bring their own experiences to it. But simply about paranoia, how much is real, how much is not real, and how much we are contributing.

The film’s singled out view puts us in an interesting perspective from beginning to end, following Sean’s increasingly growing tension and sweats. While everything is neatly captured from moment to moment and aided by a suspenseful soundtrack, the bulk of the work comes through’s Sean’s increasingly worrisome face, which is quite indispensable in the context. Great work from the entire team and cast, the only thing missing in the film is Gyllenhaal himself, but we’ll settle with his man-bun presence.

    A little underwhelming for me. Lacks a lot of real tension, stakes, and it doesn’t really feel like a comedy, not even a dark comedy, this is more of an absurd drama, it could have been 5 minutes shorter, and the texting scenes were too long..they really drain the tension out of the film. It’s well made of course and the last scene is kind of cool, with the music and everything, but the script should have been developed more…..and the title..sorry, it’s too convoluted.
