A solid comedic film for an enjoyable time.
27 February 2002 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

This is a fantastic comedic film with interesting plot twists. The story involves misperceptions of people that can go awry when mixed with the right situation. Besides the notable contributions of "Louie" Anderson, Danny Nucci ("Titanic"), Colin Mochrie ("Who's Line is it Anyways?"), and several other celebrity faces, the story is led by two best friends, played by Shane Edelman and Adam Baratta. Adam actually wrote and directed the film as well as star. It's a solid film that is enjoyable for a wide range of age groups. While the main characters seem to fit the "teenage movie demographic," the film doesn't require the bathroom humor used in "American Pie" or "Scary Movie" to keep you laughing and interested in the story. A clever script as well as the fact that the cost was so low to create it ($325,000) make this a film to see.
