Good Low Budget Movie
23 September 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw this at a test the other day and I have to say despite it's very low budget, Sweet FA is pretty good. The focus of the movie seems to be less about plot and more about jokes but thankfully there is plenty of them to keep the momentum going. The actors are on the most part good, but then again the script by Michael Skelton doesn't call for Oscar worthy performances. Of the six main characters, Kevin Spink as Roxby and Christian McCarty as Tangles shine. Spink seems to bring a depth to his character and Tangles is the quintessential likable idiot character on par with the likes of Stifler, although you ask yourself at about the 20 minute mark why these guys would bother being his friends. The supporting cast also holds a few standouts, particularly Adam Fawns as Witold and Gary Mitchell as the cop, Sgt Dinto. These two characters are in it not quite enough, I would have liked to see them in more scenes. Obviously, the film has some limitations due to its budget, but it appears the entire cast is having a good time in the film and overall I think the film achieves what it has set out to do- give the audience a good time.
