Fantastic Family Film
21 March 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Finally a wonderful family film, and a great cast of very talented actors, you start to laugh right from the start and don't stop till the end. Simple story of 3 dumb guy's who work in a video store, and their journey through life as best friends. I would love to see this type of film in all the theaters so I can tell my friends back east to see it, I know they would really enjoy it. A film for ages 7-70, great direction and editing as well, overall a great Indenpendent film, The writing is very clever and at a quick pace. This is the type of film that can be seen over and over and you would still be laughing each time you saw it. Don't miss it when it hits the theaters.
