Funny, sweet, entertaining
19 September 2008 | by john3-2See all my reviews

Dan Fogler is great in this film, doing his usual wild comedy as well as some nice scenes with his brother Anthony (Sexton). Both Sexton and Fogler are convincing as brothers stuck working in the family business and trying to break away on their own.

Jon Polito is excellent as always, though near the end he gets a bit frantic and crazy. The rest of the supporting cast are great, especially the Irish bathroom attendant who nearly steals the last few scenes.

The film is paced well, and covers a lot of plot in the approximately 85 minutes of running time. No small feat for a low budget film, so the directors should be complimented for putting together a coherent, funny, and entertaining comedy. Hopefully it will get picked up for wider distribution.
