Made me feel good about being bald
30 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

T.Sean Shannon has called upon his friends (and family) and created a unique, funny film.

Modeled after the typical high-school, new-kid, nerd plot, this movie has enough funny parts to make me rate it a 9. If I had to describe it, I would say "Sixteen-Candles" meets "Mr Woodcock" would be a good-approximation.

Filled with bit-parts by SNL players, as well as comic veterans and Oscar-winners(!), Harold keeps you guessing at a good pace all while making you giggle/laugh/broo-hah-hah in many places.

I think it must have been a nice departure for the seasoned actors to play the comedian role... the newbies held their own alongside. I predict that several of the young actors will go on to further roles. I am not sure about T.Sean's brother, Pat, though. His cameo is as short as he is bald (and now, old)! :)

Well worth the rental/download!
