Jill Watson: Sam Loves me, and Sam has always loved me, and you know that Sam was never actually dating me, but he remained celibate, the entire time that we weren't together? He would write me notes that I wouldn't respond to because I was dedicated to bobby, that would just say "I'm not fucking anyone... but you in my head". And I thought, after awhile, how can I just reject that? That is just really, really, really dedication.

Funny and well done parody of the paintball world
18 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being an avid and serious paintballer, this movie really appealed to me when I first heard of it. The movie has laughs nonstop and the characters are all hilarious and unique - some of them remind of people I've paintballed with.

The story involves a famous paintballer who has lost his fame and now attempts to make his name known again by playing in 'The Classic' years later. He assembles his team and trains hard for the tournament, with plenty of laughs and good jokes along the way. This indie film had me laughing in ways that big Hollywood productions couldn't, and the great chemistry between the cast members just adds to the hilarity.

I also loved how well understood and parodied paintball subculture was, with the gangsta-wannabe kids and wiping. I really hope this movie gets a national release so everyone can see it, and I definitely plan to buy it on DVD. Overall, I highly recommend this movie if you are into non-stop laughter and a comical look at the not-so-well-known world of paintball.
