I have to say my expectations were dashed badly with this film upon seeing it. Now while I always get a sly sense of entertainment from any Misty Mundae film, I have to admit that I held higher hopes for this movie having read reviews in magazines and seeing that it won two indy awards from a NJ film festival.
I ran to the store and bought this film when it came out as it was touted as a more serious role for Mundae and while I find her films goofy and campy, I would love to see her break out into mainstream a little more. Well, while I hold hopes for this to happen someday, it won't happen with this particular director sadly.
The story had potential, but there are entire sequences that beg the question: Is this *all* in her head or is she flipping between reality and fantasy? A good director could have you wondering right to the end, and with the right vehicle and inferences could even make you ponder it afterwards, but with this film, it just leaves you confused (at least that was how I felt as well as a number of friends that watched it with me).
If you are into the trippy pseudo-reality genre, this might be the movie for you, for me, I just sat watching the end (won't ruin it for anyone) and scratching my head thinking: Did the end get clipped on the editing room floor? To me, this director seems to assume that everyone will just 'get it', and I can speak for the 6 people that watched it with me, we didn't get it. At all.
Personally as a fan of Misty Mundae I'll keep it in my collection (I actually like the cover more than the film), but it won't be one I'll watch very often I'm sad to say.
