Great Movie - on Set and on Screen
8 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am very biased towards this movie for many reasons...

This movie was great, not only to watch its making, but to see it as a preview on the Big Screen. Many friends I grew up with starred in this movie as background people. I also got to celebrate my 16th Birthday on Set, and meet Ari Meyers and Ed Bagley Jr. in person, as well as the crew (more specifically - the lighting crew). It's too bad this movie didn't make it to the big time in more ways than it did. The story line is great. The actors are kind people, who like to have a lot of good, clean 'family' fun.

Many scenes in this movie were shot at major landmarks in the Wood River Valley (Idaho). Some of them are now historic memories and have either been moved, tore down, or changed ownership.

This by no means is an action movie, so yes, it will seem 'slow'. This is a family movie to teach children and parents that when you act out, and disobey, there are consequences for your actions. That a punishment is what you make of it, and in the movie Allison (Ari Meyers), started her punishment w/a chip on her shoulder, and made it into something Great! Both on set and off, these actors appeared to relate well with each other.

I highly recommend this movie! So much in fact, i'm trying to track down another copy of this, as I recently lost my copy in a house fire.
