super saver budgets-r-us!!!
16 February 2003 | by (Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

The final word in low cost production values - this 'film' is extraordinarily utilitarian in every aspect, from sets (an industrial park wharf) to the community college outreach theater cast, it has it all!! My only complaint is that they wasted all of that good COLOR film to make it (it sort of defeats the "film I made with my bottle return money" feel of the whole enterprise.
