A mock fry bread competition delights!
6 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The giggle factor in this film is huge. By the time I left the theater my jaw hurt from laughing so much. This tongue in cheek look at an Arizona Fry Bread Competition gently mocks Native American stereotypes. The cast of Arizona actors(most of them Native American) was excellent. Each character was fully developed and watching the story of the competition unfold was quite entertaining.The director clearly had a handle on what he wanted to say...and he says it in a gentle way.The surprise ending takes us to a place where we do ponder a darker side of the human spirit.Even though some of these characters are arrogant,full of themselves,ridiculous and pompous,they are all likable because this director knew how to cast. Good show!
