Buzz is good for Beekeepers

10/10

What John Hughes captured in the 1980s with movies like The Breakfast Club, writer/director Bryant Mainord discovers with his first feature, The Beekeepers.

This feel-good film embodies the hopes and dreams of a generation. Must see feature for anyone under 25 and over 15.

It isn't Animal House, it is far more clever and introspective. The super seniors of Statham Country University (which looks remarkably like Anchorage Alaska) Barrett Meeks (John Whitlock) and Gary Rudolph (Bryant Mainord) get into a contest with Reggie Massey (Josh Lowman) to see if they can nail the hits on the internet.

Comedy breaks out, including stand outs John Norris as Randall Keyes and Joey Weaver as the stuttering Dale Burkalter. Matt Collins, who pops in a Mattman also earns his keep.

Refreshing! It was a laugh out loud, hilarious comedy about a few college guys trying to raise money to help their friend. Their ideas of how to raise this money go beyond funny but maybe that's because they are super seniors that have lost more than a few brain cells with all the pot they smoke and Nintendo they play. Only true friends would go this far to try and help a friend. Dale's character is the best. Everyone in the movie did a great job of acting and there was a good blend of distinctiveness in each character. The movie was thought out and put together well. I did not expect to laugh all the way through the movie. Very impressed for a low budget film. Awesome job guys!
