Cody Brewer, a quiet New England fisherman isn't doing too well for himself. His wife feels neglected, and his son keeps getting picked on by the school bully. While out collecting his lobster traps one day, Cody finds a strange green moss that holds magical powers. Once word gets out about the magical moss, the entire town suddenly becomes Cody's best friend, all hoping to get a piece of it. With the townspeople clamoring for some moss and the already delicate state of the Brewer family, Cody has a tough time figuring out exactly what to do. Written by Anonymous

A movie so bad it will make you ANGRY
5 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Oh JEEEEZ!!! How do these stinkers get made and selected for FILM FESTIVALS!?!?! I kept staying to see if there would be some fantastic plot twist -- Acting horrid; worse than bad adult acting is bad KID acting -- several of those.

This may be the Worst Movie I've Ever Seen In A Theater. Colm can do good work -- I've seen it. Ditto Graham Greene. Must have been a dreadful, dreadful director.

And a bad script. Bad story. In the manner of a folk tale, but badly conceived and realized.

But, too, the photography was confusing. There were several shots of the sort we have learned (from horror films, mostly) indicate another set of eyes -- that is, the camera is in the place of a voyeur, spy, Someone Watching. So we are expecting the "watcher" to come into view -- never happens. Just stupid camera work.

I am still smacking myself for staying!!! Save yourself an evening of regret.
