Storyline

Everyone has to grow up sometime. For John Lennon (no relation to the famous Beatle) and David Mayhews (whose name sounds a little too close to that other guy in a more famous band) that time is now. John is turning thirty and he's discovering that a lifetime of driving by the love of his life's house is no substitute for the real thing. Meanwhile David is doing everything he can to adjust to the inevitable time when he too must find a real job and possibly give up his dreams of being a rock star. But that isn't proving the easiest thing to do. Both are finding out that life on that road towards the middle is going to take more than a slight adjustment. Growing Up Thirty is a touching comedy for the thirty-something generation that proves that change isn't easy, but that growth demands it Written by Anonymous

Excellent Romedy/Dramedy
6 September 2005 | by (Hollywood) – See all my reviews

Excellent first time feature. They really hit the Romedy/Dramedy nail on the head.

The performances are solid as a rock. It is a rarity to find this caliber of acting in an independent flick. Maybe the Director just knew how to direct, but alas, another rarity in an indie. Either way the pay off is on screen.

The picture set up's and composition are great. The cinematography really shows an eye for details. Shades of blue and red highlighting the right moods. Add unique camera angles that could only come from and indie perspective to spruce up the landscape, and you get a fresh mix of indie art-house and polished Hollywood.

The musical score flat out rocks. It fits the flicks tone to a "T". It's so perfect, and dead on that I would imagine it cost a pretty penny for music alone.

To top it all off, in twined with the endearing moments (that kept the wife in smiles,) there was some pretty great nipple twisting laugh out loud moments (that kept me in stitches.)

Check it out, you won't regret it.
