Storyline

Five graduating high school seniors with no prospects decide to make an outrageous comedy movie, with the hope of getting famous and escaping their depressing town. Their leader and director, LeBron, is so confident the movie will be a big hit, he gets some geeky freshmen to follow him around with video cameras to record the "making of". But, by accident, the cameras begin to capture glimpses of LeBron and his friends' actual lives, which are full of drama, and much more compelling than the silly movie they set out to make.

Very good movie, but I have a conflict of interest
23 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this an entertaining way to spend 90 min with my wife, and that is genuine. On the other hand, one of the actors is my son. Nonetheless, you can count on my honesty and sincerity.

This movie was well written, well casted, well shot. I have poor hearing but was able to make out all the dialog, so that means the sound was mixed very well. This was a good story with engaging, energetic young actors who were very involved in their work. It was great to see what a determined and resourceful director and producer can do with a low budget.

I recently finished the book "Easy Riders, Raging Bulls" about the exciting decade of movie making that started in 1967 with Bonnie and Clyde. The movies were made on low budgets; young people were given a chance to give free rein to their ideas and creativity. The decade came to an end after investors saw the huge profits to be made from blockbusters such as Lucas' Starwars and Spielberg's Jaws. Gradually, the business insisted on cranking out copycat movies in order to "assure" large profits by following a "proven" formula. The result is that so many American movies to this day lack soul and don't involve us, the audience.

I hope that this low cost model works out for Rob and for the investors, and that it encourages others to experiment with affordable production and distribution. If many people can make "their" movies, many of them will turn out to be good.

Finally, my son had a great time making this movie, and from watching it, many others did as well.

Give this movie a try, for $5 you'll have an enjoyable 90 min.
