Cheap, but not lukewarm
9 December 2004 | by (Maine U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

While not a beer drinker, I still loved this movie. Indie flicks are great; they certainly dare more than big studio movies. As a matter of fact, most of my favorite films are from independent filmmakers. The fringe is where things happen...and it's where the characters in American Beer find themselves after their car breaks down in the middle of what appears to be the Badlands. Hah! I made a literary tie-in! Ain't I all cool and sophisticated and stuff! Like German beer! (See the movie; you'll get it then.) Anyways; four Canucks, lots of cheap American beer (though the only one who gets drunk is the stoner, who is perpetually loaded anyways), a broken car, a break-in, a bar full of Ferris Bueller fans, a beatnik angel (??), a crazy hillbilly, a long-forgotten jerko gym teacher, and "the pants project".....it's all good.
