Very funny movie that truly gets the audience involved
22 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie at a screening in Austin during the South by Southwest Film Festival. I have to say that, though I saw many amazing movies, this was my true favorite. The audience was completely caught up in the movie, with collective gasps and laughter in all the right places.

The movie is very well written, and the acting superb. I could not find any one flaw that stood out. It's not quite as "glossy" as a large-studio movie, but that actually works to the movie's advantage.

Luke Kirby is wonderful in his role as Shane, and Sarah Polley is great as the best friend/girl that he wants.

The movie offers great one-liners, incredibly emotional moments, and a perfect ending. I don't know if this will ever be released widely, but if you get a chance to see it I strongly encourage it.
