I didn't know the budget for this until I finished watching it. I have to say, for that low of a sum, they did quite well. I rate it a 5/10, because the low-budget nature of it permeates the movie, but I'd rate it much higher if compared only to other low-budget films. The story and the ideas are very good, and there are a good number of enjoyable moments scattered throughout. Everyone in it seemed to like being there, and that helped make it more fun to watch than it would have been with "mailed-in" performances.
This is a pretty low-key movie, so action fans may want to skip it, but if you're in the mood for something thoughtful, easy-going, and a little bit eccentric, without all the Hollywood bells and whistles, you'll probably enjoy it.
