Storyline

Danny has found the girl of his dreams, but he's too insecure to make a move. When he lands a job at a local movie theater where she works, he finds out that his first day is her last. After failing miserably at getting her attention, he enlists the help of the chief projectionist, who has watched one too many movies, and no longer sees the difference between film fiction and real life. It's cinema, but not as you know it. Written by Jim Brit, Anonymous

An average "feel good" movie.
28 May 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

But since when does "average" equal "bad"? This movie was funny most of the time and as unlikely as it may seem the movie even contains a few plot twist and an unexpected ending! The characters are kinda generic but that's OK because you don't watch movies like these for exceptional originality anyway. In fact, as it turns out, these movies are better the lower they're rated on IMDb. Sound stupid but most of the time it's true.

The movie is about this anime geek that falls in love with a girl working at the local theater and after numerous attempts to even say a single word to her he decides to apply for a position in the theater! For some reason he becomes a lot less shy but if you'd just ignore that then we can move on. Mkay? Alright, after the tour through the complex Danny (the main character) meets the people behind the projectors and after they discover that Danny's in love (How can anyone see that within less then an hour? Meh, moving on.) they decide to help him out and that's kinda were things gets worse for Danny.

Screw the IMDb ratings, most of the time they're wrong anyway. How can anyone rate a movie who's intention it never was to be exceptional? The movie is definitely worth the watch, but then again that's my opinion. Guess you'll have to see the movie for yourself to make your own opinion. Here's hoping for some sort of sequel...
