Like the DVD box says, its "Revenge of the Nerds" of today. I miss the carefree movies that have a lot of heart and soul, you know, like all the films of the 80's. Ausi actor Adam Garcia from the hit movie "Coyote Ugly" has yet to become a household name in the U.S., and I blame 20th Century Fox for this film. Its funny, has a great cast, and something I think with a little marketing become a sleeper hit. I guess with studios knowing they can make millions off DVD sales and rentals these days they don't bother with the small films. But if that philosophy is true, then why did 20th Century Fox market "Life or Something Like It" and "Swimfan" in 2002, and in 2001 market flops like "Freddy Got Fingered" "Glitter" and "Say It Isn't So"?
Anyway, the cast includes rising star Rosario Dawson who appeared in "Men in Black 2" in summer 2002, Ethan Suplee who appeared in "Remember the Titans" in 2000, Jake Busey who has graced us with "Tomcats" in 2001, and Anjul Nigam of "Snow Job" for 2001. They aren't the "American Pie" cast, but their not unfamiliar with the big screen. Directed by Mick Jackson, who worked with Fox in 1997 on "Volcano," directed Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner in the 1992 blockbuster "The Bodyguard," and recently in 2002 with HBO on "Live from Baghdad." All films were really entertaining, and I'm proud to report that Jackson has directed another winner in his collection.
So again, its up to the internet and "we" the people to tell the country that this film is watchable and definitely entertaining. The dot.com era is still at large and if anything, the message behind the film is telling you to educate yourself today so we can live tomorrow.
