Couldn't even finish it.
4 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Despite what other reviewers have claimed, anyone with a good deal of experience watching independent first efforts will recognize this as one right off the bat. The film looks and sounds good, but it simply isn't tight, economical or syntactically advanced enough to be from experienced filmmakers. Of course, that doesn't make this a bad film. Sometimes the rawness of such first efforts enhances the material.

After six minutes or so I wanted to cut the film off, but I decided to give it a little more time. I watched up until the 20 minute mark and gave up. To put it bluntly, I HATED the lead character. He's one of those incredibly stupid people who wear their idiocy around like a badge of honor. Movies about stupid people who do stupid things have never interested me (KIDS, etc.) and I just couldn't take watching another 80 minutes or so of slurred speech, raging egos and pathetic juvenile macho posturing.

Are these characters realistic? Yeah, there certainly are people that dumb and obnoxious. Are they worth making a movie about? Not at all.
