Contains more laughs than 99% of mainstream Hollywood comedies, 19 January 2010
Author: mcnalj from United Kingdom

I was lucky enough to catch this movie and thought I'd throw in my tupenceworth. I've sat through many a so called comedy and not been moved to write about them but this film is dramatically different. Ari Golds debut feature has laughs aplenty. The characters are both funny and engaging. I won't spoil the plot other than to say it involves the unusual subject of 'Air Drumming' but I cannot recommend it highly enough. Ari is a riot throughout but is well rewarded by the brilliant casting as each of the characters brings something to the movie. I would particularly praise the casting of gorgeous Shoshannah Stern as Powers (Ari Golds) love interest. Despite being completely deaf she is able to inspire Power to new heights of air drumming greatness. Quirky & fantastic by the same measure I recommend you see it now!
