Good grief, you're... you're just like my wife... Yeah, she sits on the goddamn couch. She'll eat a gallon of ice cream... and then she cries to me about getting fat. You see, I tell her it's a simple mathematical equation. Less calories consumed, more calories burned... that equals weight loss... But does she want a solution? No no no... Not to that problem... She'd rather me just sit there... and listen to her bitch and moan.

This film tells the story of the residents in a small town, and what they are up to on a certain Saturday afternoon. The day is eventful, and people are all geared up for a big Saturday night.
The story revolves mainly about the sheriff, a criminal, an insecure young man and a aspiring country singer. Their life story is told engagingly, and I feel very much for the poor young man who has an overbearing mother. I applaud his courage to do what he does at the end of the film. It is quite surprising to me that a small independent film can have both Chris Pine and Octavia Spencer in it, I don't quite know how the producers get such great talent to star in an independent film like this. Overall, the film is a little plain to me, but I say plain not in a bad way, as the film seems a reasonable portrayal about life in a sleepy small town.
