I Laughed Along With the Natives
22 April 2013 | by (Snowflake, AZ) – See all my reviews

This movie is about a fictitious fry bread competition in Flagstaff, Arizona. Representatives from the many Arizona Native American tribes travel to Flagstaff for this first annual State of Arizona Frybread Competition. It is in the form of a documentary and we get to meet the contestants in their native lands before the competition.

The story follows five of the 22 entrants and we get to know them and root for them when they get to Flagstaff. The movie is not technically a slapstick comedy but it is humorous and a little crazy. The actors do a great job and they play their characters so well you almost wonder if it's not a real competition and they are not actors at all.

I watched this movie with my family in a theater only 15 miles from the Apache Reservation. Almost everyone in the theater was Native American, we are not. They laughed at the parts we laughed at and then some. I guess there is humor that only they can understand. They seemed to enjoy the playful rivalry between the tribes.

All in all it was an enjoyable movie. If you live in Arizona around any of the Indian Reservations, you will enjoy this movie as the Indians say and do very typical or even stereotypical things.
