Andrew Bujalski, who wrote 'Funny Ha Ha' in Austin and wrapped it in Boston, on the film's unlikely fate
Screens Story  July 8, 2005, by Spencer Parsons
"..."The thing has succeeded beyond my wildest dreams on every level," he says, "except maybe financially, and even there, it's done about as well as one could reasonably hope for, given the circumstances."
