ADVENTURES OF POWER is an epic comedy about a mine-worker named Power whose love of drums and lack of musical skill has turned him into the ridiculed "air drummer" of his small town. But when Power's union-leader father calls a strike at the mine, Power discovers an underground subculture of air-drummers who just might hold the key to changing the world. Power's journey across America brings him face-to-face with his town's greatest enemy, and allows him to discover the beat within his own heart. Written by Ari Gold

Couldn't Stop Laughing!
26 November 2011 | by FeleciaXSee all my reviews

This is my first movie review ever. I just finished watching Adven/Power on Showtime and I immediately went online to see if everyone thought it was as fantastic as I did. Unfortunately, most didn't. I think people are too used to these watered down, bland American comedies. I literally sat through some female comedian's stand up set on Comedy Central last night without even cracking a smile. Watching Adven/Power was SO different. I actually held my stomach with a gut laugh--and that's rare these days. I agree with a previous reviewer who said that this movie was akin to Napoleon--classic. And not everyone will get the funny/witty/sincere humor that Adven/Power has to offer in EVERY scene. Amazing! And Adrian Grenier was SO cute--and hilarious.

This quirky movie had soul, touched me to tears while making me laugh at the same time. In this day and age, people are so superficial and don't appreciate the simple pleasures of life. Too many people are stuck on huge budget movies with a lot of bling/bling and little substance. Adven/Power was making movies and comedies is all about. It is a cult classic and I am a fan!
