Not Only is it Funny, but the Director is cool
12 July 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the Tiburon Film fest back in March and thought that it was one of the better movies of the event. Not only does it contain an entertaining story, some great cameos, a beautiful girl, but a down to earth fellow who happens to be the director/writer/main character. Had a talk with him and some drinks, and I can see where his writing comes from. The movie was so enjoyable, that I went back and saw it again, and there were even things that I picked up on that I never noticed the first time.
