Trivia

Michael Angarano was recommended to Jared Hess by casting director Meredith Tucker, though Hess was unfamiliar with his work. When he watched Snow Angels (2007), Hess was "blown away by his performance ... he embodied what the character need[ed] to be on every level." Snow Angels (2007) also featured Sam Rockwell (Bronco/Brutus). See more »

Goofs

When Chevalier opens "Yeast Lords," the audience hears the second part of the story as though he's reading it, even though it's obvious that he has opened to the first page. See more »

Quotes

Chevalier: And finally we have a young-ling trying to penetrate the secrets of the human mind. You won't do it like that young-ling... You must use friendship.

Heavy on Personality, Light on Depth
11 September 2011 | by (Bradenton, FL) – See all my reviews

When Benjamin (an aspiring young science fiction author) attends a writers' workshop, his latest work is quickly lifted and re-imagined by two of his fellow campers. One, an obnoxious small-scale filmmaker, does so with the creator's blessing while the other, an established novelist, claims the work as his own. Written and directed by Jared Hess, also responsible for Napoleon Dynamite and Nacho Libre, this eccentric comedy lands somewhere in between the hypnotic success of the former and the disappointing shortfalls of the latter. The opening act is a real riot, with quirky, colorful characters stepping out of the wallpaper and amazing over- the-top visualizations of Benjamin's work that treat his hokey material with unmasked deference. But while those big screen interpretations of his hilariously awful novel bring the goods throughout the film (with competing visions from the two other writers' interpretations raising the bar) the primary storyline doesn't keep pace. The awkward, passionately inept cast doesn't quite have the charms of Napoleon or Pedro, (with the exception of Jermaine Clement of Flight of the Conchords, who's outstanding as selfish sci-fi plagiarist Ronald Chevalier) and there's a notable lack of a top-of-the-mountain moment that was so present in Dynamite's dance scene. It's a spiritual successor that had potential, but never completely rises to the moment.
