Half thought-out good idea
13 February 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

A faux documentary about home buying. A mockumentary. I'm sure real estate agents won't appreciate it, but at least it's not an actual documentary and they can get a chuckle or two. All acted, nothing real, though the scenarios feel real enough.

Great acting carries the film, which, while it has an interesting starting concept, pretty much depends on the interactions of the characters to carry it.

So, in short, a good idea half thought out and rescued by the acting. As a short or part of a 2 part film that doesn't require the parts come together it could work. The problem may also be that there were some of the cliché Hollywood scenes that seemed to be built in after the fact for the sake of wider audience appeal, leading to less audience appeal.
