Storyline

Some say that to embrace one's greatest talent is to make the world a better place. Others see a grown man spinning a sixteen-foot hula hoop and snicker about trivial obsessions. Breaking world records is a mysteriously seductive tradition, alternately inspiring, reckless, and bizarre. Follow a joggler, a grape catcher, and a man who cycles nowhere as they battle the odds - and their respective nemeses - in pursuit of global dominance. Since when is it trivial to dream?

Looks deep into the pages of "The Book"
15 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a movie that I chose to see as part of the Cucalorus Film Festival partly due to it's intriguing premise and partly due to the family friendly nature of the movie, it was entertaining and educational on both accounts.

When I read the movie summary I was immediately taken back to my childhood and days skimming the pages of the Guinness Book, hopping between longest fingernails (all curled and gross) and largest twins (proud and prestigious on their motorcycles...you know the two). This reminiscence along with the fact the boys, 12 and 8, also now share the love of all things worthy of a world record were both a huge draw.

Great job by Director Benjamin Fingerhut, who through the course of the Q&A was evident in his sincerity and knowledge, and all the record holders that star in the documentary. The director took on a topic that could have easily been lampooned with an angle that not only didn't demean the records and their holders but pleasantly educated in the process.
