They score again.
11 March 2009 | by jab50See all my reviews

After watching "P.J." I was curious to see how the filmmakers would progress with this film. And like "P.J.", I have to say, not bad at all if very different! It seems they had a bigger budget on this film and it shows with the various locations, especially the golf scenes, as well as the actors like William Devane. And they got "Closing Time" by Semisonic, one of my favorite songs. Not bad, not bad at all.

This film has only screened at the Park City Film Music Festival but I see it has already one a gold award from that festival as well as best song of the year from the MAVRIC Independent Music Awards for a Jenni Alpert song. I will be curious to see what else it gets into, but it seems it will be screening theatrically in April/May so that's good.

If you have a chance to see, I highly recommend people to see it. Thanks for listening.
