A little rough in places, but not bad for a lower-budget independent film.
Somewhere, I saw this movie being promoted as "American Pie for the over-30 crowd," and that's not too far off base. The movie focuses on four longtime friends who all end up back in their Indiana hometown after losing jobs or otherwise failing at what they'd tried to do in their young adult years. As the film progresses, we learn of the paths that brought them to where they are now, and watch as they come to terms with adult lives that aren't what they'd planned them to be.
The acting is decent, and the movie is funny, though the humor sinks to "low-brow" level in places. There are some rough spots in the script, though overall it was well-written and very nicely brought several different plot elements together to form an interesting and cohesive story. And as an added bonus, there's a pretty cool soundtrack.
Overall, this movie is definitely worth the $10.00 you'll pay for the DVD. Although I've seen some better independent films than this one, I've also seen many, many films that came from "mainstream" Hollywood that were much worse. The film is original and honest, and it's apparent that the filmmakers really cared about the project.
