a must see for everyone from earth
28 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you are from the planet Earth, and you do not see this movie, then you should be from some other planet, like Pluto...far far away from cool people. However if you are from the planet Earth, and you HAVE seen this movie...then shame on you for wasting time reading this when you could be telling others about the joy of the Clownana. Honestly, the film is just a joy to watch. I actually viewed it at the Arclight in Holllywood, California, and was very surprised with everything about it, from the directing, to the acting, to the voice over narration, to the very idea and storyline of the film. I do not want to give away some of the films bigger surprises, but if at all possible, I absolutely recommend seeing this film...which should be possible. Just google the title and go to the website. At the end of the day, a great film for a great time!
