Storyline

An absurd comedy about a Parking Enforcement Officer, who - despite constant abuse from the public - finds truth, honour and serenity in the act of ticketing. His religious devotion to the work is challenged however, when his best friend and personal mentor is run down by an irate motorist and knocked into a deep coma. With the help of an angry young filmmaker, a Russian sound recordist hoping to break into the local film industry, and a seven-foot tall tow truck driver from Quebec, he embarks on a comical investigation into... the delicate art of parking.

Entertaining and Funny despite bad acting and directing
4 April 2005 | by (Alberta, Canada) – See all my reviews

I loved the idea for this movie - someone who has racked up almost $3000 worth of unpaid parking tickets and decides to make a documentary movie about it. The brilliant idea for this movie comes from the fact that everyone hates getting parking tickets and most of us think that these parking by-laws just exist as a cash cow.

I always watched with interest whenever they showed one of the officers ticketing a vehicle, then the owner would show up and shout obscenities, or use physical violence, like that delivery truck driver did. They didn't show the part where Murray, the parking officer's supervisor, was run over by an irate motorist whom he ticketed, leaving Murray in a coma. After this incident, the film director asked people on the street what they thought of this, and one guy smugly said "good." A few others felt sorry for him because he was just doing his job.

Although I tend to think that parking bylaws are a cash grab to some extent, I highly respect anyone who chooses to do such a thankless job for a living.

Overall this movie was entertaining and thought provoking, but it definitely showed the work of an amateur filmmaker on a low budget.
