Storyline

Brendan and Gavin are lifelong friends who feel comfortable with fame and international adoration. Even though they haven't achieved it yet. They're just like any other small town guys - they enjoy playing in a band, reviewing book reviews and busting mad sickness whenever they can. They also have brand new jobs in advertising. Unfortunately their world falls apart after they lose their jobs, a day before their ten-year school reunion - a day they've dreamt about for, well, ten years. Written by Anon

Cracking first time effort.
14 October 2005 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

I think fans of more "dialogue" driven comedy, often the type that improves with multiple viewings, as opposed to frat boy gross out humor, will really enjoy this movie. I liked it the first time, and really loved it the second and the third was ridiculously funny. There's a lot of subtlety in there that can be missed. Being a South African, I feel this is a brave, foolish step in the right direction for filmic comedy in this country.

And the movie works on quite a subversive level I found. It really highlights the whole "instant fame" society we live in where everyone believes they can make it. It's about following your dreams in a really haphazard way. Awesome.
