Good try
28 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

Flick is obviously a labor of love. Shot digitally, the look is rough, but the shooting and editing are reasonably fluid for being made with limited resources, and the acting is passable. The story is cobbled together from a stew of Hollywood/independant film cliches such as Kevin Smith films, and it's the weakest part. It's a self-reflexive movie-within-a-movie that seems like an excuse for Flick to exist, with lots of irrelevant romance and mystery side-plots, and there is no main conflict to drive the film.

One big example of lack of conflict is the 2 main characters' backgrounds. They are college roommates- but not majoring in film, just something else I forgot because it's irrelevant- yet they decide to make a feature film with no motivation, while balancing a telemarketing job at the same time as classes. Further complicating the question of motivation is their lack of material wants- (they have a large house, tons of gadgets like laptop computers, film equipment, etc.)- these are students?

Some of the attempts at humor work. The audience responded and laughed a few times at the premiere, especially at the porno guy who gets called randomly during telemarketing. Other jokes are just bad. The roommate's relationship is one thing that came off as creepy instead of funny- guys just don't share a toilet. The jokes that paid tribute to Hollywood, referring to Star Wars and Ghostbusters, seemed just a little too smarmy, like they were aimed at the filmmakers own clique of film fans.

If you're interested in independant filmmaking, you can learn alot from this film- it's impressive simply for the fact that they made a feature cheaper than cheap and got their first effort out in front of an audience. Good luck to the filmmakers, and I'm sure they had a good learning experience so we can expect good things from them in the future.
