Storyline

Jim and Dave are brothers. They haven't spoken in years and don't like each other very much, but are forced to come together for a week when their dad dies in Kansas City. Alonzo Mourning was drafted by the Charlotte Hornets with the 2nd pick in the 1992 draft. He averaged 21 points, 10 rebounds, and 3.5 blocks per game in his rookie season. His basketball cards were very popular throughout the 90's, and in specific, his limited edition 1992 Skybox Series rookie card. Dave is pretty sure he has one those, but Jim has other ideas. Alonzo Mourning had no brothers. Written by Anonymous

Good natural feel but needed a bit more structure to deliver on
8 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Jim and Dave are brothers who have long since gone their separate ways but the death of their father sees Jim seeking out Dave and returning home with him for the funeral. The return to the home of their childhood combines with long unspoken issues to bring resentments and childish competition to the surface in both of them.

This short film is a very tight scenario that sums up the generation of men who perhaps feel as connected to their childhood as much as they do to adulthood, it also shows how quickly a return to the home and habits of childhood can have an impact on the behavior and mindset too. In this instance we have two brothers who bicker as they meet up, collapse into childish squabbling and fighting but ultimately do love one another albeit in an uncertain and undefined way. The film does this reasonably well but with the downside that the awkward childish nature of their relationship does have an impact on how well the film gets told. There is a natural feel to their banter and dialogue but it doesn't have a solid frame to hold it within. As a result the characters are less interesting than I would have liked, and the story itself is too simple and yet a bit messy in terms of all the "things" in there.

It has a cool title and good performances from Pumphrey and Rennie, but while the comedic banter helps make the relationship feel real, I didn't feel there was enough structure and heart to the film to really make the most of this.
