Did You Know?


A large portion of the cast and crew attended grade/high school together in the same small town that the 'daydream/interrogation' scene was filmed. This location also has ties to one of (director/actor) Larry Longstreth's schoolmates and childhood friends, who did not appear in the film or work within the crew. It was 'the worst' [uncomfortable] set, according to the cast/crew that worked on this particular scene. Due to the particular room's absence of windows and small size, it was extremely cramped and hot. This forced them to take more frequent breaks to cool off and fix makeup. Time to film this scene was extremely limited as it had to be completed in one day; at Raytec Systems in Stow (Ohio) while the office was closed and empty of it's employees. See more »

If you liked "Clerks" ...
27 May 2014 | by pryzfytrSee all my reviews

If you liked "Clerks", you'll go for this low-budget independent film (I'm certain that writer/director Larry Longstreth is cringing at that comparison if he reads these reviews!) I resisted seeing it at first (I'm likely a generation - or more - older than the target audience) but when I did I was captivated from the start. There are some genuine Coca-Cola-out-the-nose funny parts (be careful when you sip!), besides an actual interesting story.

The quality of the acting bests most "Lifetime" movies, as well. You'll get no spoilers, nor a plot outline, from me. I will say that if you are just on either side of thirty, viewing is mandatory! Older viewers who remember that age (fondly or not) may also empathize with "leading man" Ben (played by Longstreth.)

Anyone with a wicked sense of humor will certainly get a few side-aches!

There is much swearing(too much for me, although it likely represents how people of that age actually speak!) so little ones should perhaps watch Shrek XXXVIII instead.
