Peter's Sister: Well, what's wrong with that?
Peter Rooker: You don't pour your heart out to your sister. That's like taking your sister to the prom!

If You've Never Done Theatre (or known people who do)...
11 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

...you won't appreciate this film for what it is. It's a small film about people who love theatre and art, for people who love theatre and art. If that's not you, don't bother. And especially don't criticize. I don't watch horror films or blockbuster action flicks because I know I'm not going to like those genres. If you don't like small, character-driven films centering around life in the theatre, don't watch this one. It's that simple.

That being said, there's so much to like about this little movie. Memorable dialog, nice acting work, emotional depth, and some dead-on characterizations of theatre people. I liked these things about this movie, so I enjoyed this movie. Pretty simple, really.
