Really Funny-Great All Around
13 July 2010 | by pixelvisionSee all my reviews

I really loved this film. I saw it at a film fest and thought it was what I thought The Savages was going to be - but was not!!...and The Savages was nominated for an Oscar(and it think won)! But back to Carried Away - It was definitely a LOL movie (laugh out loud for any grannies out there) and made me feel like I am not alone in my thoughts about my own grandmother. This is what I love about independent films and so much better than Hollywood studio junk. I've read a little bit about the director and the making of the film which made me like it even more.

I think Carried Away's good for a Church Group film night, a College Film Society Night or date night at home. I would watch it again for sure!
