Let me start by saying I love "The FP" and consider it a work of genius. Well-acted, well-scripted, well-shot, funny and so on. A truly great film. And I think we can learn something about filmmaking by comparing that film with this one, another Jason Trost joint.
With "The FP", a short was made. I assume this was used as a fund-raiser to get the full picture done right. That was a great idea and it worked. Here, we have what was a thrown together film -- if what the trivia on IMDb says is true, it was written in four days, shot in two weeks, there was no budget and time constraints meant the script had to be cut on the fly.
That is no way to make a movie. You do not necessarily need a budget, but you need to know what you are capable of and work with it. Here, we can tell it was rushed. The acting is only average, some of the lines seem out of place... and it just was not clever on the level of "FP". Another script revision or two, an extra day of shooting or two, it might have been worlds different.
