For all the attempts at evoking such, there could have been more laughs
This is one of several NP2K films that was made by multiple of the site's frequenters... rather than, as usual, the frequenter and their own group; a collaboration. This has(from what I could tell from the credits, the editing of Eric Branco, but the listing here doesn't seem to agree) the direction of Bryan Harley and the writing of Adam Bertocci. Of them, it is the last(sorry, guys) that I could recognize the most. The mix is interesting enough to watch, and I personally disagree with the votes of 1... I realize that every time there's a title here on the site with a low ranking and/or a bad rep, there's at least one review with the sentiment(many times, even as a summary) "it wasn't *that* bad...", so I'm not going to add to that. Instead, I'll say that this could have been a lot worse, even if it could also have been better. As has been said, a lot of the comedy is forced. This never is quite as funny as it tries to be, but it does bring some good stuff, and the writing has at least two references that people who know Adam will get(and if you've got no clue who the guy is, you may still, they're not really in-jokes). The plot isn't bad, the idea behind it is perhaps the most memorable aspect of this. Acting varies. Keep your eyes open for a Harley regular or several. Editing and cinematography do the job, but they could have been more engaging. I recommend this to fans of off-beat, quirky comedy, particularly that of Adam's... just know that the people who made this have done finer work elsewhere. 5/10
