i liked it
22 March 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

this is the second film from writer/director Gary Burns,the first one being The Suburbanators,which i have yet to see.i liked it quite took me awhile to warm up to it,but once i got into it,i really enjoyed it.the characters and situations come across as pretty real.many people can probably relate to some of the characters and the situations.the acting is very good.the dialogue is often funny.the film reminded me style wise of Clerks by Kevin Smith,except it's much funnier and more clever,than Clerks was,i think.i loved the was perfect.overall,it's a pretty decent 81 minutes or so.for me,Kitchen Party is a 7/10
