Storyline

Auggie and Drew are a couple of guys who have been at the college they are at longer than most students because they spend most of their time throwing parties and charging people to come and other schemes. But when the Dean grows tired of their escapades he graduates them. They go to see Drew's cousin, Samantha who runs her family's gas station and she tells them that the owner of a fast food chain wants to buy the station. Drew reminds her that her father had hopes and dreams built around the station. When she sees how obnoxious the owner is, she decides not to sell. Auggie thinks they should open their own restaurant. He goes to the bank and gets a loan but only by putting the station up as collateral. They open but things are slow. But when a sorority at the college hires them, Auggie decides to put a formula one of their college mates develop which is an aphrodisiac. And pretty soon business is booming. And the owner who in addition to not taking the rejection well, wants to know ... Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

A Solid 2
20 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tracie Griffin, Michael J. Pollard, Tracie Lords, Kevin McCarthy, and Jim Varney do not save this specious squander. Locations in Atlanta, Georgia do not save it. Everyone looks as if he or she drifts through a plot made-up of fragments perhaps borrowed from much better movies or from Mr. Varney's entertaining commercials.

The movie is not quite awful—as least not as bad as movies I have judged awful in other reviews. Somehow, I think that this film might have made it with just a bit more effort in writing the script and a tad more flair in—well every other aspect of making a movie. Michael J. Pollard shrugs frequently during the movie. That is a good symbol for the quality of the script, music, acting, editing, film work, and any other aspect. No one seems to care much for the effort other than to bring it all to an end—the movie does end but not with sufficient quickness for my taste.
