When I first looked at the ratings for this, they must have been skewed by all the friends and family of these very novice filmmakers. I really can't imagine a film any more boring and pointless than this one. If you don't fall asleep during it, your life must be very dull, indeed (I actually didn't fall asleep, but started doing other things, watching to see if the plot would ever develop and if anything would ever happen. I was surprised by the credits at the end, because really... NOTHING ever came to be. You couldn't make a more boring film if you took any two college drop-outs living together and a cheap video camera and filmed them sporadically for a few days when they were doing nothing much. I really can't imagine a film being done any worse than this one... I think I could describe every scene in this and still not "spoil" it.
I think the ratings are telling: there are 9 people (as of now) who gave this loser a '10'. And now 11 who have given it a '1'. I'd say the filmmakers have 9 friends (probably all in this!) Don't bother watching this folks; there's really nothing happening here.
