Very Napoleon Dynamite Feel
I saw this movie at Sundance 2007. I really enjoyed watching this show, I caught about 5 movies in 4 days and this was the best out of all of them.
This movie was entertaining, I was never bored. It reminded me of Napoleon Dynamite however different enough to not be a rip off. All the characters were great! They added exactly what was needed in this movie to make it fun to watch.
Favorite Quote "Some people don't have sleeping bags"
Anyway this is really worth a watch and look forward to having a copy at home to watch over and over.
