Fat City, New Orleans -- Paul (Josiah Lipscomb), Ashley (Maggie Talbot Minkin) and Billy (Sean Carlin) are best buds growing up in suburban New Orleans (Fat City) 1979. It's their senior year and all they care about is turning 18... the legal age to drink. Smoking pot is a way of being and make way for a hilarious "trip" to the disco era where booze and girls are all that matter in this coming-of-age comedy.

High School Teenagers in 1979 suburb of New Orleans (Fat City) go to nightclubs and discos when the drinking age was just 18 years old and not really enforced. Elvis Costello and The Knack have featured music in this independent film. Its Paul's Senior year and Ashley wants to be his girlfriend, but the cops and a roving eye keeps Paul chasing cheerleaders and young models in his Babylon Modeling class. Tara, Paul's ex-girlfriend causes problems while his pot dealer's girlfriend has other things in mind. Can we say "shot gun?" This coming of age comedy also has background score by "That 70's Show" composer, Brett Perry and spotlights the "high" days of 1979.

Different and fun, 26 April 2012
Author: robert-nichols72 from United States

I just read one of the previous reviews and I don't know what they were talking about really. I myself like movies based on what they are. Going in to see most movies I know what I would be seeing. So I don't expect to see Shawshank Redemption when I am seeing Transformers. On that note I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. I liked the tone & the vibe of the cast and energy that they had.It definitely made me wish I was there during this time. I thought the main characters were funny, but in a good way. This is one of those movies that would be good to watch with a bunch of friends and a couple of beers. I liked the music played and thought that was important in setting the correct tones in the end especially!
