Storyline

A long night's journey into day. On the eve of her 18th birthday, talkative and rotund Cara is invited to accompany a pizza delivery guy, Matt, on his rounds. It's a night of firsts for her - first job, first beer, first cigarette, first dance. How will she handle it? And, what about Matt - good-looking, single, unattached, and 30? Why would he want to include Cara? She's intrusive and vulnerable; he's under-employed and protective. Is there life after pizza? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Pizza (2005) *1/2

Some independent movies are independent for a reason - they're just not very good. Their creators just have to get it made; in their mind it is a good movie. "Pizza" is one of those movies. Its not one of the worst movies I've ever seen, but then again I've seen a lot of movies. The acting is sub-par, and the dialogue is inane and thinks it reaches a level of importance that it misses by a mile. Mark Christophers writing is bad, but i'm not sure which is worse, the script of the direction. Its hard to criticize the actors when their given such hackneyed dialogue. Somewhere in here there is a noble message about confidence in yourself no matter who you are, but its too skewed to really be of any significance.

Now, I didn't hate this movie, i did laugh a couple times and i felt bad for Kylie Sparks character a couple times, but still incredibly annoyed by her the rest of the time. If this movie were just a little bit worse, it might be one of those deliciously bad movies, but its at that unfortunate state of poor quality where it gains nothing from itself. There is something to be said of about being quirky and awkward, think of the films of Wes Anderson or Punch Drunk Love, which are very well made. But there is also something to be said about being quirky and awkward in a self congratulatory and poorly made film. Pizza falls into the latter category.

1.5/4
