6 BALLOONS is a tightly-wound mini-drama that understands addiction and co-dependency from the inside. Top-notch work from Abbi Jacobson and Dave Franco, both playing against type without losing an ounce of charisma. Good stuff.

- Flavorwire

6 BALLOONS: A major departure for Dave Franco & Abbi Jacobson that pays off. Drug addiction not from the subject’s POV, but those around him/her. Particularly the ones we love and how it effects them.
