Every now and again,there is an exception to the fact that independently produced films are better than mainstream Hollywood fare. 'Skills Like These' is one of those exceptions. This is one of those films that tries like the dickens to be quirky & left of centre, but somehow fails. Max is a failure as a playwright. His latest bomb (called Onion Dance)has managed to clear the theater of audience members in it's opening night,plus given a major heart attack in it's one & only major backer (Max's grandfather). Max decides that he would do better trying to rob the bank across the street from the Mexican restaurant they spend most of their time at (where do they get the money to eat there,day after day?). Max decides to go on a crime spree, despite the guilt he feels for stealing other people's stuff. A romantic subplot only manages to bog this mostly unfunny shaggy dog story only further (although the female lead,Kerry Knuppe is easy on the eyes). Spencer Berger (who wrote the leaden screenplay)plays Max,a failed playwright with an impressive Afro hair-do. His two slacker friends,Tommy & Dave,are something out of a bad sitcom (Jay and Silent Bob have way more depth than these two). This is one film that is occasionally amusing,but lacks focus. Not rated by the MPAA,this film contains strong language & some mild sexual situations that would pretty much land it an 'R'. Thankfully,there are far better independent films to choose from out there.
