From the co-founder of Slamdance comes the story of a young man who returns home from a trip abroad to confront not just his peculiar family and friends, but also a pair of Colombian jewel thieves and a roving gang of Iowa kickboxers, culminating in a showdown at Carhenge. A seminal movie in the history of independent film, "Omaha: The Movie" was the film that spearheaded the birth of the Slamdance Film Festival. Written by

Roving gangs of kickboxers from Des Moines, Iowa. They've been making their way along the interstate for years. It was just a matter of time before they crossed the river. But we're ready for them.

Having worked in Omaha for 2 years, this movie has enough fun and creative moments to rate a 9 from me. Even the credits are hilarious. (I'd guess the 1st reviewer needs a humor transplant.) Anyway, Director Dan Mirvish is a creative talent, Jill Anderson is great and this independent film rates wide viewer-ship. I learned about Carhedge, too. The family interactions in Omaha - the Movie are all too true, such as when Simon announces his inner peace quest to Nepal, (met with a "have fun" response from his couch potato dad!).The FBI bust scene is too funny. So, in short, see this film if you feel your sense of humor is above average. If you think it's dull, you'll have to stick with the evening news or horror/suspense movies.
