Rick Murphy: Did I ever tell ya' about the law of averages? The law of averages is... at any given moment there's some horrible shit happening to someone in the world, right now. At the same time, there's some really great shit happening to someone else. The law of averages is... most guys are like you and me... nothing really great ever happens to us, but the good thing is nothing really horrible happens either.

unexpected fun
11 March 2005 | by robin-280See all my reviews

saw this film at the San Jose Cinequest film festival last night... wasn't sure what to expect from the festival catalog (another genre/period parody?), but i was laughing within the first few minutes... the cast is almost uniformly terrific with nicely nuanced performances, and props to Robert Culp who plays a wonderfully aged comedic extension of his younger self... shot in 35mm, the whole production is clearly the work of professionals (a fun past-time at Cinequest is counting the times a boom or shadow enters the shot or the crew shows in in the reflections... maybe the story was so compelling i didn't notice, but except for one brief moment in the desert, the DP earned their check (smile)... could benefit from a bit of trimming during the last 40 minutes, but the film is written right up to the end, and doesn't simply run out of steam... The Almost Guys is Definite Fun!
