Storyline

Three high school virgins, suspended from school on a bogus graffiti charge, flee to the inner city in an attempt to live out the plot of The Catcher in the Rye - a book they neither have read nor understand. BINDLESTIFFS documents their struggles along the way as they surrender their virginities to vagrants, prostitutes, and crack fiends. Hot on their tail is Charlie, the deranged school security guard. Under the impression that the boys are planning a school shooting, he takes the law into his own hands to stop them and save America. Written by Millard Pearlman

Really Funny/Great Example of Low Budget Filmmaking done right
29 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The reason I combine those two things in the title of my review is because in my experience it's excruciatingly difficult to successfully pull off both; I write for a filmmaking magazine on low-budget filmmaking/filmmakers, and I can't even begin to tell you how many painfully long/boring/uninspired/unoriginal/unfunny "comedies" I've sat through in the past few years. So it's no surprise to me that Kevin Smith's Smodcast Picture hand-picked a film like "Bindlestiffs": it's funny, it's fresh and, somewhere beneath the laughs and drugs and vomit and sex and ponchos, it has a heart. By no means is this movie perfect, but then again that's kind of what makes it so awesome.
