Based very loosely on real events
16 April 2019 | by kps-56482See all my reviews

I went to this movie because I remember this contest as a kid and thought it would provide insight into the actual events. In the end other than it being a radio station hosting a billboard sitting contest there is not a single thing relatable to the original contest. So you are not surprised as I was here are some things that seemed off to me: 1. This is based in 2016 and not 1982 as it originally occurred. 2. Four contestants instead of actual 3 and they were a very small part of the movie and from Nationwide rather than local 3. Acting was poor and camera work often dizzying. 4. Changed the timeline in the movie as one point suggesting they were four months into the contest which would be January but yet it was sunny and in short sleeves and green leaves on trees followed by a scene where they say its Halloween. 5. Adding a fake Mayoral election for the City of Allentown when locals know the location of the billboard is not even in Allentown. 6. Several scenes where they make Allentown seem to be run down and suffering from poverty which may have been more accurate in 1982 but does not fit the current timeline. There are many more issues but if you see this and have any recollection of the original events you will be disappointed.
