"Be careful what you wish for..."
11 January 2007 | by (MI, United States) – See all my reviews

This movie has the makings of a cult hit. It's quirky, silly, and becomes more funny each time you watch it. Set in Portland, Maine, it's a treat for anyone from the area. Bob Marley is wonderfully over-the-top (as always). It's the tale of a young man who gets exactly what he's always dreamed of...only to discover it's not all he thought it would be. Though not widely distributed, you're likely to find a copy in the Portland, Maine area. So grab a meatball sandwich from Amato's, grab this video, call a group of your friends, and enjoy. It's amusing the first time, pretty funny the second, and you'll be laughing until your sides hurt by the third time around!
