If you begin to watch this movie knowing that it's a extremely low-budget independent with non-actors, you'll be quite surprised. It has a better story-line, acting and editing than many of the multi-million dollar Hollywood productions that are foisted on us.
BGBO is definitely an edgy, sarcastic, dark comedy. It isn't meant to be true-to-life or a Hitchcock thriller with every loose end tied up and fraught with subtleties and nuances.
Accept it for what it is -- I loved it and never saw the plot twist towards the end coming (the reason for the GTO). Gave it a 9 out of 10.
If only the networks could come up with movies-of-the-week as original as this instead of the endless retreads with former models and sitcom stars.
