Storyline

Joe is a children's book writer and illustrator in L.A. in the second year of major writer's block. His girlfriend, impatient with his lack of progress, gets bitchy, so he breaks off the relationship and agrees to accompany her brother to a small town in Wisconsin where stalwarts jump in Lake Michigan on Christmas morning. The house where they stay is isolated, and when Joe's pal is hospitalized with a badger bite, Joe is on his own. He befriends a local hermit, is attracted to the man's granddaughter, and must deal with the local sheriff's dislike of anyone from out of town. Plus, the sheriff is the young woman's dad - with a gun. Christmas approaches and things get complicated. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

[first lines]
Aaron Aaronson: We've here today with local Venice Beach children's author, Joe Peterson, who has exploded onto the scene with what is going to be a series of nine tough-love kids books. Hello Joe...
Joe Peterson: Hey, how are you.
Aaron Aaronson: Look at these kids. This is incredible. So what can you tell us about this tough-love aspect. It reminds me of the books that I read when I was a kid. No Coddling. This is not a warm and fuzzy book. It's not every day that you have a warm cuddly kitten devoured by a vicious piranha.
Joe Peterson: ...

Fun romantic comedy!
3 October 2010 | by Harry-122See all my reviews

I just saw this last night, and I was delighted by the clever writing and the honest performances. Some situations stretch reality a bit, as any good comedy/farce does, but the writing always stays grounded in reality.

Barry Corbin turns in a layered and wonderful performance as a family patriarch, Tony Shalhoub is wonderful as usual, and the rest of the cast is fun, believable and interesting.

Although obviously shot on a limited budget, the director uses local scenery and architecture to paint a rich background to the plot.

I'd like to see more from director Michael Matzdorff, and from the entire cast!
