You probably have not seen this film, but if you ever have the opportunity to, I highly recommend it. Set in Atlanta, Ga., the "DBC" could have been a silly low-budget piece of crap starring a man some have called a "has-been singer" ...but somehow it comes off as a hilarious character study based on some real-life situations and people -- the daily horrors experienced by fast food and restaurant deliverers. I cannot give away too much here out of fear of blacklist, but you will love this film if: 1) you like to hear jokes about baby boomers, 2) if you hate talking gorillas (and the kitschy cheese of other people forced to wear animal suits in sweltering heat so their bosses can hope to attract drivers to eat...), and 3) if you love Shawn Mullins--yes, the singer of 1998's perfect tearjerker "Lullabye" ("Everything's gonna be all right, rock-a-bye...")who just might turn out to be one hell of a great actor. Mullins is perfect as a chain-smoking neurotic mess of a man named Tigg, who gets chased by, among other gag-inspiring things, a psychotic man(iac) with a powerful leaf-blower. You'll laugh until you are dizzy! I saw it about a year ago at a film fest, and have wanted to see it again. Hopefully, it will make it to DVD soon... Rob Fletcher, Denton, Texas
