DescriptionCan't You Take A Joke is a comedy about a stolen sense of humour and the search for a romantic love. The film uses the romantic music and visuals of Hollywood's 'women's pictures' and 'film noir' to explore the idea of romantic love ... of Love At First Sight. Is it possible to have sex and not fall in love? Is it possible to fall in love and still have a sense of humour? Cartoonist Amanda Drax doesn't think so. Femme Fatale Jenny Balfour proves her wrong. Boy meets girl and girl meets girl, hearts are stolen, senses of humour are lost and found in a riotous comic-strip kaleidoscope.
