It manages to make a seemingly mundane game seem a bit more interesting
15 August 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Is this a great documentary or one that will change your life? Nope. However, it manages to do what any decent documentary does--makes the topic seem more exciting and important. While I have absolutely no interest in Bingo, I found myself watching and actually enjoying the film--showing that the film makers have a lot of talent. What I especially appreciated about the film was the nice accompanying music and the amazingly diverse locations. Much of it was filmed all over the United States (including a "Gay Bingo Game"), but quite a bit was also filmed in Britain and Ireland. About the only deficit I saw in the film is because the locales changed so much and so often, it was difficult to connect with most of the players--though this wasn't a serious problem since you got to see such a wide range of folks.

Will this be a film that appeals to everyone--absolutely not! But for documentary fiends like me, it hit the spot.
