A cute comedy with Tom Arnold in a surprising role
14 December 2008 | by slapshot24See all my reviews

Tom Arnold is appearing in a few indie films to bulk up his body of work. The producers of this gem were lucky enough to get him, and they've made the most of his talents by letting him play an ever-so-slightly strange LA citizen who turns to survivalism to cope with the madness of modern life.

But, of course, the movie isn't really about Tom (as himself) or his hobbies. It's about the love between Carl (Hill Harper, CSI: NY) and his wife Viv (Robinne Lee, Buffy the Vampire Slayer). And the complexity of the urban family. And the need to just vent it all some times.

The movie just works. It's a good movie to spark a conversation after a glass of wine, and a good movie to watch with friends when relaxing. There are moments of humor, and moments of gritty urban decay. It defies classification as a pure comedy, but ultimately the story will bring a smile to your face.
