Actor (The Legacy)

  • “…both Louis Iacoviello and Paul Butcher really do bring their characters to life in a way that is both witty and warm-hearted. These are characters that you can believe in, understand and very quickly come to care about. I’d have been very happy to spend much more time with these characters… – Paul Pritchard, Pulp Movies
  • “…delightful chemistry between Louis Iacoviello’s Charlie and Paul Butcher as his bedazzled son.” – The Independent Critic
  • “Paul Butcher and Louis Iacoviello are a perfect match as father and son…while Iacoviello presents a sly mind set that keeps not only his son but the audience wondering if the suspicions are logical or just a child worshipping his father. Clearly this is one of the best short films I’ve seen all year.” – Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
  • “The acting is superb from its perfect cast…” – Pop Culture Beast
  • “…spot-on casting….” – Sean Gerski, It’s Just Movies-Under Review

“Dating L.A.” is a riot, featuring Hatcher as a clueless Midwestern gal using the services of a dating counselor (Smith) to solve her romantic ills (written by Iacoviello)…My favorite was “Last Chance Obedience School,” (also written by Iacoviello), where a cantankerous old man (Ward) is subjected to an unusual regimen of treatments for his bad disposition”. – LA Weekly (Lovell Estell III)
