Storyline

High school, road trips, and the lost art of pool cleaning. In the vein of classic 80s teen comedies, BROKE follows the adventures of four friends who try to plan a weekend trip to Canada. Marshall Tucker has just survived the last day of his junior year of high school. To celebrate, he and his three best friends plan to head north of the border to Canada for the weekend. However, the venture soon takes a turn for the worse when Marshall's trusty Chevy Nova dies during their departure. Their solution; convince their friend Vern to take his parents minivan while they're away for a week on a shady religious retreat. Before the group even gets out of Chicago, they end up in a bizarre car accident, wrecking the minivan. Now it's up to them to find a way to raise a thousand dollars to fix the van before Vern's parents return home. Written by Bill Whirity

Broke
11 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of viewing Broke at its premiere in Chicago, and I must say, it was everything that you want in a comedy. It had a great storyline, believable characters, and most of all, it was genuinely funny. It wasn't over the top or trying too hard, it was just funny because it was real. Everything these guys went through is definitely something I could relate to and that made it even more enjoyable. Broke is def one of those comedies you want in your collection because it has a timeless quality to it; you can go back and watch it anytime. Living in Chicago, I'd heard about this movie way before it came out, so the anticipation was set-in hard. When it finally premiered, I was not disappointed.

I wish I had four hands so I could give it four thumbs way way up!!
