Trivia

Richard Dutcher donated the 16mm film stock to make the movie. This is the same stock (three years-old) that God's Army (2000) was going to be shot on, had Dutcher not found the financing to shoot on 35mm. See more »

2 September 2003 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

this movie has it's funny parts but it is also very long, even though it's only an hour. they focus too much on one of the directors who is very unfunny. it does have it's moments though and you do find yourself laughing quite a bit through out but if they would just eliminate the peter character it would be great.
