A typical rock bottom starter film that's not so bad
16 January 2003 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Suffer along as a lazy, 20-something LA pothead suddenly learns that his lifestyle has been cut off by his father's death and he has to find work or be disinherited in 30 days.

Sound familiar? Sure, but this time it's fun because you're also suffering along as director, cast and crew figure out just how to put all this together before the film runs out.

I recommend this only for the jaded film-buff who is amenable to watching a "cult" type film--even though it's certain that it will never achieve cult status.

Many of the cast play two roles. Doesn't matter.

Only a few sets. Doesn't matter.

There are some hilarious moments here, made the more pronounced because they are surrounded by a fair amount of hum-drum, mediocre sound, iffy camera work and stilted delivery.

But when they are cooking, which is often enough, they give you a warm feeling -- one that you've no doubt had before. "Cult" films are fun. YOU are the rare one, the knowing appreciator.

They are putting on this asinine show just for YOU. It gives an intimate feel, like minor league baseball, that you just don't get with studio releases.

Currently rated a 3.6 with 10 votes (01/16/03), I'm weighing in with a 5.0 rating, on the terms suggested above.

Enjoy.
