Drink the cool-aid. This is gonna be a cult classic.
3 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Trailer Park Jesus is a wonderfully irreverent film. This movie doesn't go out and try to offend anybody, it is just a fun ride littered with catchy one-liners and fairly descent acting. It is based on a 'true misadventure', which is a witty way of saying that somebody lived through this chaos. I will compare this film to other drug induced cult classics. There is a Jesus character that is giving and bears a striking resemblance to the conventional Jesus but this Jesus is the 'Trailer Park Jesus.' As opposed to turning water into wine, Trailer Park Jesus turns water into wine cooler. Trailer Park Jesus starts in New Orleans where the main character, Jessie, is about to embark upon a road trip from New Orleans, where he goes to college, to his hometown in Missouri. His plan is to entertain some of his high school buddies with some little fish decorated stickers laced in LSD. Just like almost anybody in his situation, he gets into his stash before leaving New Orleans and shares it with a couple of cute, but kind-of air-headed co-eds. This will come back to get him. When Jessie takes off on his trip home, things start to go wrong. His cell phone and car break down in the middle of nowhere. He finds himself off the interstate in a little redneck, po-dunk town. Everybody in this town is related, or so it seems, and of course they all live in a trailer park. Jessie is stranded with his car broken down and no phone in a town that offers little in the way of help. There is a convenience store, a bus station and the trailer park. He starts to meet the colorful cast of characters from this little town and barters his way into getting his car towed and a ride for himself to the bus station by trading hits of acid. The bus doesn't leave for hours and pretty soon he is in the trailer park with his new friends, selling his acid piece by piece and pretty soon everybody in the trailer park is in a fish fried frenzy. What can go wrong goes wrong but of course everything works out. The characters are hilarious. They fit their roles and everybody puts in a very strong performance that all help to make this movie the best future cult classic to come out of New Orleans this year. There are very lovely visual effects and the city of New Orleans is well represented in montage form with a nice sprinkling of local music, the likes of Country Fried and other local artists. The sound is terrific throughout the film and that is a testament to the talent of the filmmakers, as is the cinematography and layout of the story. This was a low budget film but you wouldn't know it by watching it. Trailer Park Jesus is very well made. With blatant disregard for authority and grandmothers, this clever film provides viewers ages 17-69 with a mind explosion for 90 minutes. Dazed and Confused did it in the 90's about the 70's featuring herb as the special guest. This was done again in the 90's about the 90's when Maui Wowie had a feature roll in Half-baked. Trailer Park Jesus puts two hits of strong acid on the tip of your tongue and drags you through the trailer park on the edge of your seat. Writer/director Sean Gerowin does a great job of keeping the atmosphere light and enjoyable while still somewhat practical. The characters are very entertaining and as far as I know, would fit right in to a trailer park somewhere in the Bible belt. Michael Dardant brings the most back woods character, Paul, alive with a terrific accent and well timed punch lines. He also juggles fire. Brent Henry plays Paul's running buddy/wrestler, Luke, and he slips into character as easy as skipping bail. Holly Rochelle is a natural and fits right into the trailer way of life. Danie Colman is the cute love interest of Jessie. There always has to be 'the girl.' Time is the true villain in this film but time's sidekick is Shanna Forstall. She plays a mean bitch. She does it well. Jessie is so easy to relate to and root for, candidly played by Garrett Smith. Trailer Park Jesus is sweeping the world off of its feet and into a lawn chair and I recommend that you grab a 4-pack of Bartle and James' wine coolers and check this one out. It's fun; it's inventive with great character development and ties everything together wonderfully. This is the 'don't miss comedy of the year.' Not only will fans enjoy the feature length film, but the filmmakers provide the fans with so much more. You can follow Jesus on twitter under @tp_jesus and enjoy witty banter that flows like the Mississippi River. There are Apostle Kits available that contain goodies and swag for the true believers. This film may not start any religions but it is developing a cult following and we can expect to see more from these film makers as they work very well together and continue to work together. We have all been blessed with this divine film so let us all rejoice and celebrate Trailer Park Jesus.
