My life will never be the same again.

The Adventures of Food Boy is a film that has quite literally changed my entire outlook on; love, life and ham sandwiches. Not quite as impressive as "Hobo with a shotgun", "The Toxic Avenger" or "Surfing Nazis Must Die" but it hardly seems fair to compare it against such lofty masterworks of cinema.

So the premise. Ezra, a unpopular high school student believes that running for junior class president is his one way ticket to clunge-town and paving his way to a prestigious college, unfortunately much to Ezra's dismay, he gets hit hard by a heavy handed puberty metaphor and rather than growing a curly wig of hairs around his particulars he instead begins shooting bread from the palms of his hand! But he isn't limited to just bread, oh no! It transpires that he is able to create all manner of food stuffs from his body and thus begins Ezra's adventure as the titular food boy.

So you are probably thinking that his adventures consist of globe trotting and solving the crippling food problems in third world countries or perhaps he dons a mask and fights crime firing peanuts from his finger tips at allergic bank robbers! Alas you are thinking far too small eager readers! No, Ezra uses his unique gift for personal gain, mystifying his peers with 'food magic', becoming a food fight dynamo and teaching his 40-something year old school bully a lesson in humility! To be fair to Ezra he does do a brief stint feeding the homeless in a soup kitchen but soon realised the futility of it all realising that they would much rather be given change to buy drugs or a can of special brew despite their protests that in an age of mobile phones that they only want it for bus fare or a pay phone.

If I went any further into explaining the film then I would be spoiling the incredibly gripping and deep plot that the writers have sculpted as their very own modern day citizen Kane. The Adventures of Food Boy is a master piece coming of age film, set to become a modern day classic and a complete roller coaster.
