look for it
11 September 2004 | by (santa clarita, ca) – See all my reviews

saw this on the independent film channel a few years ago and would sure like to see it again. tried to track it down to no avail. a realistic look at the minds of aspiring actors/writer who get together regularly at a diner to mull over their progress. they grow on you, you root for them. the highlight of the movie is the song "selfish" sung over the credits. wonderfully witty. could never find that either. if you find either kindly let me know. i know of few people that saw this film, it could be that it was never released and only shown at a festival or two. that would be a shame. the dearth of movies that actually have something to say continues. nothing blows up here, the bloodiest thing is the ketchup, and the only threatening thing is life itself. but i want to be entertained, not stupefied, and this one does just that.
