Quirky and sometimes touching comedy
19 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of watching this film at the Seattle Independent Film Festival, one of its first public screenings. From the opening scene with Jesus, Elvis and a Catholic school girl hitchhiking on a desolate Nevada road, to the episodic, nonlinear structure that retains portions of the film's stage-play origins while also expanding beyond it to take advantage of the different medium that is film, through the many pop cultural references and social commentary, and the unending barrage of bizarre and hilarious jokes, this is a film that manages to both be touching and hilarious while keeping you engaged for its entire running time.

According the director/writer/star, everything in the film is based on true-to-life events. Knowing that makes this film even funnier. Keep an eye out for this one at a film festival near you. Or, even better, snatch it up when it appears on for rent or sale on DVD/online.
