During two Q&A sessions at the Vancouver International Film Festival (2007), director Allan Moyle stated that he intended to use completely different and better known songs for several of the sequences on the film. Because of how expensive the rights of those songs were, he decided to use local bands (Ontario, Canada) to supply the needed music for the scenes. See more »
The basic story of "Weirdsville," is 2 stoner junkies owe one odd drug dealer money and must find a way to come up with it by last call that night. It turns into an all out scramble through the city involving everything from their dead hooker girlfriend, a satanic cult, and a troop of little people. Oh, and of course it all happens in the only place in the world it could...Canada.
The Good: This movie was entertaining. There is a ton of laughs to be had, twists and turns, and it all comes together in the end. The acting was pretty good considering this was more of a fun movie than anything else. All together this is a great screwball comedy. It was amazingly well crafted for the type of movie it is as well.
The Bad: I really can't say a lot of bad things about this movie. The plot is a little basic but that is to be expected due to the kind of movie it is supposed to be. It's comedy and entertainment folks, not rocketry and mathematics so if you decide to watch it than you already know what you are getting. As long as you read the back of the box, you should enjoy it.
I give this one a 9 out of 10. Pretty well crafted for the genre. The cast of "Weird" characters includes about anything you could ask for in a slacker comedy and definitely doesn't disappoint. Get out the bong, and get ready to melt into the couch and have a good time with "Weirdsville!"
