Storyline

A small town multiplex is turned upside down when a famous Hollywood director, Simona Wakefield, is rumored to be sneaking into a special screening of her new film. The workers of Cinema 14 divide up in two opposing factions: the first led by Rocky, an aspiring young filmmaker who wants to impress Wakefield and get a recommendation to film school. The other led by Wade, an anarchist, wheelchair bound ticket-taker who wants to 'smash the machinery of storytelling' and sabotage the sneak preview. Everyone in the theater is on the lookout for Ms. Wakefield; finding her, however, proves to be a harder task than anyone realizes. Written by Zachary Dehm

Strictly Amateur Hour
3 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this underwhelming and gratingly pretentious no-budget indie comedy at a screening at Butler University in 2006.

Why it doesn't work: the bargain basement Kevin Smith dialogue continually fails at being witty ("Bruce Willis' character is really dead!"), the cast is a zoo of amateur desperate-to-impress actors, and production values are almost zero (works for Smith sometimes, few others).

Judging by the decidedly lukewarm audience reaction at the Butler, I wasn't the only one who felt this way. Go rent Clerks or something resembling a "real" movie instead.
