Goofs

Obvious cast of the dung, since the big kid hit the dung, and it stayed the same shape. This is actually not what happened in the scene at approximately 7:10 Hobie trips and falls landing on his right shoulder just in front of the big pile of poo. He rolls forward with his face toward the ground, lifts his head a bit showing the pile of poo on the ground behind him. He has no poo in his hair or the right side of his cheek. If he had actually landed on the poo that would have left open a lot more crass jokes for the teenage boys to make. No jokes no poo on the face. (However, it still could be and probably is a fake pile of Sasquatch poo. See more »

User Reviews

 
A nice surprise at Slamdance
22 January 2006 | by JonnyOneNoteSee all my reviews

I went into this film with little knowledge of its plot beyond what IMDb and the Slamdance Film Festival published (at the time of this writing, there isn't a trailer or even a poster!).

That being said, I found myself starting to laugh at the very opening sequence, where the three geeks "prepare to do battle." The moment that won me over was when Gavin (played by Jeremy Sumpter) went over to a little portable CD boom-box to play some medieval music to set the "proper scene" for the battle! From then on, I sat back, relaxed, and enjoyed a pleasant comedy that was well-written, directed, edited, and acted (definitely a breakout performance by Sumpter as well as Hubbel Palmer as his sidekick).

Judging from the sustained laughter from the audience, I wasn't alone in my admiration for this independent film.
