Storyline

James wants to have fun, but cynically realizes that life has little fun to offer. Turning nineteen has been a souring experience filled with disappointments. The added pressures of manhood have begun to weigh in as friends become scarce. He needs a good night out and his only hope lies with his best friend Russell, whose own world was perfect until his girlfriend, Jennifer, announced that she was "going out with some other guy" that night. The two nineteen-year-old men simply want to forget their individual problems over a few beers and set out into the underage world where strange things happen. Bad directions, bad luck, and teenage-harassing cops stand in the way of these two slackers as they hopelessly meander through the streets of Austin, Texas trying to buy a case of beer. Their patience and worries are pushed to the limit until they are forced to do the unthinkable. Written by Anonymous

Nice try.

I went out and rented this film because I had heard that it had won the audience award and it was supposedly funny. Sadly this film just left me with a stone face. I only found a few saving moments that I felt compelled to smile at, but that was it. Overall this movie was very disappointing. For such a cheaply made film it looked good, the quality was fine, acting was acceptable for the most part. The problem lied with the story, screenplay, and the premise. I mean sure pretty much everyone has been found wanting beer and couldn't get it. And who knows it might even be a funny gag in a movie, but thats it a funny gag. I don't see why someone would feel the need to stretch it out to a full length film. This film is quite boring and doesn't deliver on any level, what started out as a bad joke is dragged and beaten out into a long drawn out borefest. Avoid this movie if you can.
