Better than expected
6 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Traveled 130 miles to view premiere on a hunch this might be the another dark horse....that and I had very little to do on Saturday night. Anyway, I discovered a really good movie. While it does stick it's finger in the eye of Reality TV it also provides a subtle message about how hard overcoming addiction will be...sometimes you're not sure if you should laugh or cry at the circumstances as they unfold...I applaud that it did not play the nudity card ...It can be a really good date movie for the 17+ crowd...it has that foreign film genre like cinematography while delivering both laughs and a controversial message to discuss over pizza afterward...as I heard one viewer say, "It can be to Christmas what Blair Witch was to Halloween." I agree
