Sam Davis: [reading for children's book] He would not take no for an answer. Our young hero traveled a great many leagues beneath the ocean's surface to find his shackled mermaid. And he had no intention of leaving without her. However, the evil Sea King had other plans. Like a mad man driven by love and revenge, he unsheathed his spear gun and fired!

Good Times
20 October 2013 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

It irks me that this film is so seriously underrated and draws derisory comparisons to Rushmore. Most definitely one can draw the comparisons, but that does not at all take away from the originality and quirkiness of Ceremony. It's main character, "Big" Sam Davis, provokes your sympathy, for me even empathy. He's hapless and suave, as is his best friend, and their misadventure on a weekend of friendship and finding love is so poignant, well e-quipped with humour, and fantastically grand in it's reality that it becomes compulsive viewing not only for it's strong emotional journey, but also for it's delectable slice of mid-twenties adolescence at an impasse with life. Don't stand on Ceremony, go out and grab it, and watch it. And then after - grab some life too.
