Very Poor
11 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

I rented this film from my local video store and was surprised that it was even picked up for release. It is evident that the ONLY reason it is out there is because the two jokes from Project Greenlight made it. I guess when it became obvious that nothing would come of their future works, they decided to cash in on their past works. Very poorly acted, particularly by Kyle, who insisted on putting himself in most of the earlier works. After having seen him in this and in Pennyweight, I personally think that he should never act again. I do like the spirit of independent film, but I also think there is a difference between independent and amateur, and this film comes off as the latter. I found the plot to be unintriguing and at times to be well above the skills and budget the filmmakers had to work with. The blind date sequences stand out as particularly bad and cumbersome and far tool long. Overall I feel like a distribution company new that they could repackage it with the words Project Greenlight and get people to rent it, they should have watched it first and had some integrity.
