An Independent Movie that Surpasses Mainstream in more than just writing
While I may watch the occasional sitcom, I am not normally a comedy movie type person. That being said, I will get a copy of "Firefall: An Epic Family Adventure" once it finally comes out on DVD.
I was happily impressed with "Firefall: An Epic Family Adventure," as I had seen some previews and was actually expecting it to be the typical over-hyped independent movie that tried too hard, overly filled with crud humor and looked like it was filmed by a novice, and almost didn't go to see the movie. I am SO GLAD that I didn't listen to myself.
While, I do feel that one potty joke in particular lasted FAR too long (could easily have been half the length and still felt too long; you'll understand what I mean when you see it), the rest of the potty humor was generally well timed and didn't try to push the shock level.
If you enjoy comedies, feel good movies, and good characterization with great writing; you will enjoy this movie that one could essentially call, a grown-up's version of a family movie (as in designed for the whole family but that a parent can enjoy more than say a young child would, bucking the trend).
