If you think "Airplane!" is a screamingly funny movie, you might find this one amusing. This is a standard missing-person film with a very non-standard approach just as "Airplane!" is a standard air disaster film with a very non-standard approach. A 7-year-old boy goes missing. The police are called. They suspect he's still in the house. Instead of blanketing the neighborhood and surroundings with posters of the lost child, they blanket the house with posters. Literally. Ha, ha. Get it?
The search goes on for months, limited to the environs of the house. The police detectives move in and stay with the family, searching the house over and over again. And over, and over, and over. Ha, ha.
We saw this film at the Cinequest film festival in San Jose. The film was made in an Atlanta suburb, in the childhood home of the filmmaker while his parents were on vacation. It's crowd-funded. Ha, ha. Get it?
