Very Funny
20 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw this movie at the Sonoma Film Festival and it was really funny. Went with a group of friends of all ages and everyone was laughing out loud. Not to mention the soundtrack is really good. Have told so many of my friends about this movie. They can't wait for it to be released so they can see it first hand. It is a kind of Big Chill for all of us who grew up in the 80's. It takes you right back to High School. It also deals with the issue of growing up and moving on and getting older. This seemed to strike a chord in everyone. It is the reason, within our group, that everyone found amusement in this film. No matter what age, if you have a chance to see this film, do yourself a favor and go. You will be in a good mood for the rest of the day.
