Thoroughly enjoyable
14 March 2004 | by Dreamer1See all my reviews

Won't bother reitterating what's already been said about the film. It was well worth seeing and though the budget was less than what most Hollywood films spend on craft services, every cent shows on the screen and the dynamics between the leads are sparkling. Ed Robinson (of Barenaked Ladies fame) works well and Kenny Robinson as Robbie, the porn store owner plays suitably subdued which, for a comic, is no easy task. The supporting cast all play well, blending-in and emphasizing without stealing the spotlight from the leads. If I have any quibble with the film it would be that I maybe could've done with a little less of the porn star fantasy but otherwise I thoroughly enjoyed the film.
