Relentlessly Funny, Well-Paced
14 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

Saw it at OutFest last weekend, loved it and crowd had a great, very audible response to it. Sure, the conceit is obvious, but this writer-director knows how to milk extremely clever dialog and shock reactions extremely well. The characters are so crazily obsessive with what each of them wants -- great -- push it -- fun -- but the far more difficult and satisfyingly impressive task is that this writer-director has his crazy protagonists elicit an equally strong response from their victims! Talk about push-pull craziness. Everyone wants something pretty urgently.

#1--very well-written (sure, over the top super-real characters but based on core truth) #2--well-directed. The director has guided and balanced these over-the-top characters to have real needs and real reactions (not an easy task!); these actors are committed and do a great job. Sit back in your seat and laugh: very very enjoyable film.

Be on the lookout for David Dean Bottrell's next film. Definitely knows what he's doing. Characters, comedy, writing, guiding the acting, a short that is a polished product? -- he delivers.
