Great little Indie gem.
21 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Houston comedy film festival, where it took home the award for best feature. This is definitely not a film that's going to change the world but it will make the world laugh for the whole showing. It's a really hilarious movie although it has a few flaws in the story. It had the audience rolling from beginning to end. I had seen the trailer and wasn't really impressed by it but I decided to catch the flick anyway. Boy, was I surprised at how entertaining this movie is. Yes, it has some sound issues but it has really good production quality overall much better then I anticipated and I was shocked at the micro budget this film was made on. All of the lead actors are really talented, a little raw but they all have a real shot of making a career out of it.

Swooped played back to back with another feature and the other film was so boring and no one in the audience laughed more then a few times. When Swooped started most of us were already pulling our hair out due to sheer boredom over the last film. Thank god it started when it did because swooped saved everyone's day with 90 minutes of good laughs.

I got to meet both Joe and ShaunPaul at the fest as well. They were really down to earth guys, very approachable. I look forward to seeing what they do next.

I'm not sure if you can buy the film anywhere yet but when you can I know I'm going to grab a copy. I suggest you do the same.
