Storyline

Mark, McGriff and Jason are three high school buddies whose glory days are long gone and are still stuck in their small Pennsylvania hometown. To break free and escape their much too ordinary lives, they embark on a cross-country road trip to the College Football Championship Bowl. The journey takes them through hilarious twists and turns, boozing and misbehaving every step of the way. Throughout the wild adventure, they discover the most important thing in this crazy, uncertain world is friendship. Written by D.B. Sweeney

Great little film
8 June 2006 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

3 men well into their adulthood and facing problems - ranging from an unfaithful wife to gambling debts - decide to take a road trip to the Superbowl after one of them unexpectedly wins tickets in a raffle. What results is a coming of age story with a certain twist.

Twist in that these men have already come of age - they are adults, working, tending the family, and all of life's problems. The coming of age comes in that they are men locked in their past, still reminiscing of the good old days when they were young and life was easy, fun, and there was little, if anything, to complain about. One was a star athlete, one a musician, one the class valedictorian. But then, somewhere down the line it just dissolved away and they are now working dead-end jobs, which they obviously don't like, and life is... bland. Completely unlike before.

Very well written, acted, and directed with a strong focus on the characters and often gut-bustingly funny the film presents one of life's most valuable, though not most obvious lessons: life will not live itself for you, you have to live your life.

Props to first time director D.B. Sweeney. 10/10

Not Rated as of yet, but has occasional profanity/crude dialog and some humorous drug use.
