Wonderful Little Film, A good example of Indy Film making.
12 February 2001 | by doc-90See all my reviews

This was a delightful example of the under $500k Indy Film. Shot in rented houses, and relatives backyards, this film had acting and flow that was superior to many big studio films. Joey Slotnick was good as the pained lead character, but Sam Robards stole the scenes as his lecherous brother. It was a good turn for party of 5 star Paula Devic, and another place to see the a short clip of Indy film standard L. Christian Mixon. All in all it is a good watch, and a fine date flick.
