Did You Know?


Since this was a very low budget shoot, actors brought their own wardrobe to set. On the second day of shooting, actor Chris Ready forgot to bring a wardrobe change so he had to wear his previous costume from the day before, the black suit jacket, pants and gold shirt he wears throughout the film. Writer and Director Jose E. Cruz Jr. wrote into the script that P S does not change his clothes because the suit is part of his schtick. See more »

Awesome job , guys!!
6 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at my house, I'm friends with one of the crew members, I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed this movie. The acting was good, the script was hysterical, and I loved the cinematography. The lighting was some of the best I ever seen it was better then most big budget films. I laughed so hard I PEED A LITTLE. No joke.

My favorite scene was the alley way, I can't believe how awesome you guys made it look, it was something straight out of a classic noir film. I'm very fickle when it comes to movies that I like but this is truly one of them. I would love to see this get made into a big budget film so that I could enjoy it again on the big screen.

I can't wait to see what these guys will do next. Jose and Shaun are the Philly's dream team for indie film makers. I love it and you! I hope this goes far but if not Knock'em Dead trying boys!!!
