A Creative, Funny Movie.
5 December 2005 | by Briansm88See all my reviews

Having worked in Omaha for 2 years, this movie has enough fun and creative moments to rate a 9 from me. Even the credits are hilarious. (I'd guess the 1st reviewer needs a humor transplant.) Anyway, Director Dan Mirvish is a creative talent, Jill Anderson is great and this independent film rates wide viewer-ship. I learned about Carhedge, too. The family interactions in Omaha - the Movie are all too true, such as when Simon announces his inner peace quest to Nepal, (met with a "have fun" response from his couch potato dad!).The FBI bust scene is too funny. So, in short, see this film if you feel your sense of humor is above average. If you think it's dull, you'll have to stick with the evening news or horror/suspense movies.
