Thank you for this movie!
6 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'll admit when I decided to watch this film with a friend of mine it was due to seeing Jason Mewes in the lead, as I am a big fan of the films he has done with Kevin Smith and I find him highly entertaining. That was what made me sit down to watch the film, but what kept me watching was this cool story with writing and characters that made me laugh and I felt like I was on for the ride with them as the movie progressed. I felt a connection and sympathy for Jason's character, as it was unlike any I have seen him in before and he was just a different person than I had seen him in any film. It was one of those films where you know who the good people are and how they don't always finish first, but in this film they stood up for themselves and stopped just taking the abuse of those that often win. It is a film I will watch again with friends and whenever I need a laugh or just want to feel good about life. I applaud the actors in the film and the writer as it is a true gem and that is always something wonderful. If you have not seen it, do something good for yourself and see this film.
