Love this film - excellent plot - didn't know what was going to happen next
25 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really loved this film. I thought it was wonderfully written, directed and shot. The cast of characters were crazy funny. If you're into dark comedy's this is a must see. The plot was totally crazy but it totally works. I was really surprised at the high level cast, for an independent film it had a lot great actors. And the guy who stutters is freak'in hilarious. I think this was one of the last movies with David Carradine in it. Plus if you like Frank Harper in Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels you gotta see him in this. Gina Bellman is totally hot

  • and if you're into dwarfs - she is even hotter. Just check it out,


you wont be disappointed.
