Better than it sounds and certainly better than expected
29 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, what do you expect from a movie with a premise that has been done to death and always bad. The plot sounds like a high school student movie and there is no way that this type of movie can go any where. I watched it because I liked Napoleon Dynamite and this is done by the same group that did that movie. I thought to myself what is the worst that could've happened? Watch it for like 5 to 10 minutes and walk. I think the key is to go into this movie with no expectation. Don't expect it to be a good or bad movie and you will get the movie. This is the kind of movie that you either like or hate. It is not an acquired taste. It is your own personal taste and how you like the actors, the writing, and the treatment of the movie by the director and staff. Some people will think this is a complete waste of time and some will think this is a nice funny movie. I don't think this is Napoleon Dynamite and I am glad. I like that this is its own movie and I do enjoy the way it worked out. This is witty and full of odd ball characters to make it enjoyable. There are some pretty poor attempts to be funny; but overall, it is worth the time and money. Of course, this movie will probably go DVD very quickly. It is nice to be watched with a group of friends but not really something worth watching on a big screen, in the dark, and talk about after the movie is over. This is a good movie for rental and burn some mindless 90 minutes.
