surprised and loved it
29 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I moved to Louisville about two months ago and am still learning the town. Saw this movie by accident (came to see something else and saw a bunch of people going to see it) and, spur of the moment, bought a ticket. Wasn't expecting much, especially when the director, some local Louisville guy, got up and introduced it. But man...fun movie. Looked great, made me laugh, and had a ending that was oddly funny and moving. A real 'sleeper' as the critics say. The music soundtrack was great and I really loved seeing the guy from Dazed and Confused all grown up. He was especially terrific. Made me sort of fall in love with my new home town. The filmmakers said this was going to be on DVD this summer. I'm buying.
