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

Cool and Charming
13 October 2005 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

I completely agree with this film not being "gotten" by everyone. Although I don't know how.

It's a total piece of anti-cool coolness. And the Napoleon Dynamite example is spot-on.

I've actually seen it twice and got more jokes the second time. Once again, I can see how some of the jokes are going to go over the head of the less attentive audiences. Also, some of the jokes are not as straightforward as their MTV sketches. But it still maintains all the deadpan delivery style and Crazy Monkey pacing.

The film moves around nicely, so there's always something to keep your attention. And you're never sure what's going to pop out of the heads of these small-town 'heroes'.

It's fun and tight, and gosh – even has a bit of heart to it.
