My 19 year old brought it home to watch with friends. I joined and was shocked at how funny it was. The movie isn't kid friendly but hit home for me, my teen and her friends. I've told all my co-workers to get it at blockbuster asap. A couple have and now we quote it around the work place. If you like office space, clerks or just hate pop culture you'll love this. As an older woman I was able to watch it and enjoy the film making fun of the younger people. The pink shirts and gender bending pants. It's refreshing to see this and think all hope is not lost for my daughters generation. My husband loved the parts making fun of MMA fighting and the father figure's lecture to his son. Overall our entire family was shocked at how good this was. It is clearly not a big budget film but it's still good. We look forward to whatever this guy makes next. 10 out of 10 for us.
If you liked "Clerks", you'll go for this low-budget independent film
(I'm certain that writer/director Larry Longstreth is cringing at that
comparison if he reads these reviews!) I resisted seeing it at first
(I'm likely a generation - or more - older than the target audience)
but when I did I was captivated from the start. There are some genuine
Coca-Cola-out-the-nose funny parts (be careful when you sip!), besides
an actual interesting story.
The quality of the acting bests most "Lifetime" movies, as well. You'll get no spoilers, nor a plot outline, from me. I will say that if you are just on either side of thirty, viewing is mandatory! Older viewers who remember that age (fondly or not) may also empathize with "leading man" Ben (played by Longstreth.)
Anyone with a wicked sense of humor will certainly get a few side-aches!
There is much swearing(too much for me, although it likely represents how people of that age actually speak!) so little ones should perhaps watch Shrek XXXVIII instead.
