I can't get travel out of my head
13 March 2008 | by mathewalmadenSee all my reviews

So I watched this film to an sold out audience at Cinequest a couple weeks ago. While watching the movie I was entertained, maybe not as much as the rest of the audience who seemed to just love it, but by the end of the film I just thought the film was at least fun to watch, nothing that blew me away, but I wasn't disappointed in the film at all. I watched the Q & A and the filmmakers seemed really passionate about the way it was made and to go out and travel the world. And they had some great stories about how the film was made. And Brooke Burns is so beautiful in person - which by the way she played one of my favorite characters in the film too. Anyway, I walked out of the theater thinking it was alright and now, two weeks later, I'm still thinking about the movie! Now- I think the film is quite amazing and I will rent it if it ever comes out on video. (I'm happy I got to see it on a big screen) How funny huh? It's not the greatest independent I've ever seen, but it's dam entertaining and it makes you want to go out and travel the world. What's crazier is that I actually bought a ticket to Honduras yesterday and I'm setting out for my own adventure! So I warn you, watching the film might make you do something impulsive. . . that's a good movie in my book.
