Hysterical Indie Flick
I don't know how my friend found this movie, but it was funny as hell. It says Barry Dingle, here but the DVD we watched said Dingle, Barry but it's the same movie. It was fun to watch a indie that didn't take itself seriously, not overwrought with heavy drama or trying to make some preachy message, it was just funny. Talking about the film after it was over, we realized how wrong some of the stuff we laughed at was, and that's why the film works. It takes serious subject matter and makes it completely outrageous. It is a very good ensemble cast, the highlight being Erik Palladino playing four characters, and making each one funnier then the last. The music is fun, and the story is told in a fun way, a couple of camera tricks, and structurally moving characters back and forth through different time periods and scenes. I recommend it for hanging out with friends, make sure they have a sense a humor though; I could see why people might be offended by the film. This film is destined to be a "cult classic".
