good film
11 July 2013 | by (Richardson, TX) – See all my reviews

An aspiring rock musician is severely chided by his girlfriend for being a slacker at his "art." He also manages a local bar that serves nothing but cereal-his idea entirely-and attracts a loyal clientele. When a businessman rips off his idea and opens up a new, larger, and fancier store across the street, an all-out war begins. The girlfriend at first considers joining the original Flakes but then joins the competitor. Things then get rather heated as-well, remember Cheers and Gary's bar? This could be shown in college business classes as how businesses and competitions are run. I thought it was a good movie and had a good cast. It was funny and delightful from start to finish. It was a good way to pass an hour and a half.

*** out of ****
