With was a solid low budget independent film. The film makers should be proud.
16 July 2002 | by (Santa Monica, CA) – See all my reviews

I felt this movie had all the makings of a very solid low budget independent film. The writing was fresh, witty, and seemed fairly true to life. The dialogue seemed to fit the characters to a tee and the casting was very fitting.
