Low-budget film starring another Wahlberg to premiere in Hingham


There’s another made-in-Massachusetts project premiering this month, albeit one with a much smaller budget than the HBO miniseries “Olive Kitteridge.” Producers of “The Rude, the Mad and the Funny” e-mailed Tuesday to say the film, starring Arthur Wahlberg and Erica McDermott, among other local thespians, will screen Sept. 18 at the Patriot Cinemas in Hingham. The movie centers on a down-on-his-luck stand-up comedian who takes a couple of legendary comics on a roadtrip to a comedy contest in Atlantic City. Not as well known as world-famous brothers Donnie and Mark, or even Paul, the chef/nominal star of the A&E show “Wahlburgers,” Arthur has made several small short films, according to, including “The Test,” “The Target,” and provocatively titled “Transsexuals From Space.” Need another reason to go see “The Rude, the Mad and the Funny”? A portion of the proceeds from the Sept. 18 event will go to, Nation, and The Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation.
