I guess I expected a little more
23 February 2011 | by Matt_LaydenSee all my reviews

A young man is sick and tired of his girlfriend's annoying laugh, he comes up with this elaborate plan to dump her which involves the insane story about eagles turning people into horses. Thus the title.

This movie that they are pitching seems more like an elongated sketch than anything else. I guess maybe I just expected something more along the lines of Suckerpunch, another film that features both Nick Kocher and Brian McElhaney in the spotlight. Both of these guys are hilarious and have great timing with their comedy. Their writing style is up my alley and I respect the fact that they set out to make their own film. I'm an aspiring filmmaker myself, so I guess I was expecting a little more from this effort, which doesn't really come off as the big picture I was expecting.

Their sketches are hilarious, this was their chance to bring something bigger, better and stronger to the table. I didn't see that with this film. It ran 15 minutes and as a short film it does the job of setting of a problem and finding a solution. The bits that didn't work for me were the comedic parts. I chuckled here and there but never let out a big laugh. I had more fun with their sketches than I did with this, when it should be the other way around. The bigger production, the longer piece, it should have better writing and make an impression on you. It should be something that you want to show to people so that they hire you to write their script, or act in their movie. I didn't see much ambition with this one.

Nothing really creative on the filmmaking side of things, again the film had a 'longer sketch' vibe to it. If I were to make a film I would put more money into the production side of things to make it look cleaner. For me, both the creative and the production side of this film were lacking. I also had no real idea of where things were going when I watched it and by the time it was over I was thinking to myself, what was the point?

I'm still a fan of these guys, they were funny in the film and it did have it's moments. Just nothing to make me remember it, which is the hard part. You need to make something in the film memorable enough to get noticed, I'm afraid this might not do the trick. What do I want to see from these guys? Call my selfish but I would like to see an effort in the form of Derrick Comedy's Mystery Team. Get some money, write a script, a full feature script and put 100 percent of your time and effort into it.
