I actually got to see the world premiere of this film at The Independent Film Festival of Boston. I was excited to see it since there was so much buzz surrounding it. The premiere was a lot of fun, Joey McIntyre, Eliza Dushku, Will Arnett and the director were all there. Anyway about the movie, The first few minutes of the film did not look too promising. The pacing and editing seemed off, however after that the movie became very fun. The story was enjoyable and funny and at times moving. The acting was not bad, I was especially surprised by Joey McIntyre who puts in a believable performance. Eliza Dushku was great as the sexy, crazy supporting female role. The rest of the cast was great as well, especially Will Arnett who was hilarious and Amy Poehler who provides much laughter in a short cameo. By the end of the movie you feel as if you are a part of the cast, you feel like you know the characters. This is one big ode to Boston, a film that will make all Bostonians proud. Despite some awkward editing and cheesy moments, this is simply a short, sweet film. An unpretentious, enjoyable movie.
