When Jim - a disenchanted yet highly popular college professor - learns of his father's death, he must track down his deadbeat brother Dave and deliver him to the funeral. Upon arrival, they both learn that they've each inherited one half of the family's vacation home in Branson, Missouri, and in order to sell the house - from which they both badly need the money - they'll need to travel down to Branson, and the ensuing trip both fixes their house, as well as their relationship.

A wonderful mixed bag of low budget production value and hilarious comedy
3 November 2015 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

I grabbed this as an iTunes 99 cent rental based on the trailer.

Aside from Swingers, this was quite possibly the worst production value I've seen in a film with this kind of distribution. The audio quality was terrible, the lighting was amateur, the editing was simple, and overall, it was just really low budget.

But I watched the entire film and laughed the entire time. The acting was great, the script was fantastic, and the characters were perfect. The location could not have been better for the story, and the use of music (i.e. Dr. Dog) was spot on.

Which all goes to show, when you have a good story and good actors, you could shoot it on VHS and be successful. Film is about storytelling, not resolution or film grain or VFX or all-star casts.

This film succeeded in telling a compelling story with flying colors, and made me laugh (hard) for 90 minutes. A+++
