The "Tunnel Vision" epidemic
16 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Recently it seems as though several titles that have come out are missing something crucial that audiences tend to enjoy- subplot.

The film overall is enjoyable and has many funny moments. While the cast members are easy to like, aside from the Paul and Jay the others lack effective facial gestures that in comedy play equally important parts in terms of "punchline".

The pace of the movie is moderate and moves along well, but this is also where the story becomes a tad monotonous. Without a secondary story, or subplot that could have involved one, or more of the many supporting cast members the point, or purpose of the film travels in a straightforward line from A to B.

Moments in the movie begin to inspire a touch of heartfelt sensitivity (a great contrast to crass/controversial humor), but are cut short before delivering any lasting effects.

To be fair, the project was shot in a very short period of time (less than a month) and given the time frame the finished product is decent, however in the absence of a secondary plot it might have been better to create more suspense/keep the viewer guessing by having Paul (the lead male) refrain from divulging his "secret" that ends up being the basis for the final mission.
