Very funny and totally unique!
scoochie912 November 2007
This very pleasant surprise of a film gave me even more hope for the future of Hollywood. I do enjoy many big-budget movies, but I'm always on the look-out for great indy-films. "Redrum" is such a one. It's reminiscent of the 80's film "Eating Raoul" in some ways (the dorky, "square" couple transforming themselves through outrageous means, for instance), but it veers off onto more morality-questioning paths. Pretty deep for such a fun, often extremely silly movie. In fact, if you're not a fan of the silly, the bizarre, the truthful, or the absurd, "Redrum" may not be your cup of tea. The actors are all on their game, particularly the two leads who are hilarious from their geeky beginnings (the first dance scene! OMG!),through their transformations (when he tells her he has to deal with his high school nemesis by himself! OMFG!), all the way to the very end. The supporting actors are just as talented in their various roles: often obnoxious... and totally funny. Look for great things in the future from these film-making folks!

Good Movie
Gmellou3 November 2007
This was a very good comedy. It really kept me laughing from start to finish. Good movie to see with your friends or your significant other. Good movie writing. This movie should have ran on the bug screen. Jill Marie and Kenny young have good chemistry. I hope they make more movies together. Everyones's favorite 'Girfriend' meets the all around good guy. Jill was hot. It is always good to see Terry Vaughn one of my favorite ghetto girls(I mean that in a good way). Excellent twist of fate in this movie. It brings real meaning to the phrase "Becareful what you ask for" or "Don't start something you cannot finish." This would be a good movie for movie night with family and friends. I can't wait until the next movie comes out.

Like a train wreck.... you can't look away!

Warning: Spoilers
I caught this movie while channel flipping and ended up coming back to it and watching the last 3/4's of it. It's not often that you find a "black" black comedy, but this movie was very entertaining. Imagine "Eating Raoul in Da Hood."

Don't know the main actors, but perhaps that made the story more entertaining, and the supporting cast really helps the storyline. Overall, a good hours entertainment and I do plan to go back and watch the beginning. It's not for everyone, but if you enjoy the Showtime series "Dexter" (and particularly if you root for him each week,) this film might just bring a smile or two to your face.
