Terry and Dean are lifelong friends who have grown-up together: shotgunning their first beers, forming their first garage band, and growing the great Canadian mullet known as "hockey hair". Now the lives of these Alberta everymen are brought to the big screen by documentarian Ferral Mitchener in an exploration of the depths of friendship, the fragility of life, growing up gracefully and the art and science of drinking beer like a man.

The story of two metal-heads. From Canada. I thought this movie was going to be much like "The Stoned Age" without the Schnappster and Blue Oyster Cult. I was wrong. What I got was a movie that was either way too short or way too long. The joke is that metal-heads are stupid and drink beer. If you get the joke, do you need to see it for 76 minutes? Because that's the only joke in this film. It could have been 15 minutes. Or had it been 2 hours, maybe we could have explored the characters a bit more and the depth would have cleared things up.
The film isn't all bad, though. It's mildly entertaining - especially Deaner. Tron and Terry are only background to Deaner's madness and tight underwear. I also enjoyed how the film took an unexpected turn towards the end, though they didn't really do anything with that. For an independent film with no real actors or director, it's not bad. Honestly, I couldn't have written or acted or directed this story any better. And I'm not Canadian. This film may not be an underground masterpiece, but it's also no disgrace to Pilsner. I guess watch it if you're really drunk or on ludes. Don't watch it because your friends tell you to - they're liars.
