Another great film from the team that borough you P.J.
11 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

As I said before and I will say it again, I love films of all types. This includes "Chasing the Green," which I saw at the Park City Film Music Festival and now seems to be headed for the big screen in a month, from the same team that brought us "P.J." Unlike "P.J.", "Chasing the Green" is based on a true story and it has more comedic elements. Starring Jeremy London of "Party of Five", Ryan Hurst from "Remember the Titans", William Devane of "24", along with "P.J." alums Patricia Rae and Robert Picardo, it's a non-stop ride of the likes of "Wall Street." It's about two young brothers who succeed in the cell phone market only to be unfairly brought down by the Federal Trade Commission. Beyond that, so i won't give anything away, I will only say, you won't be disappointed if you see this film.
