Great fun, great soundtrack, and lots of laughs
17 December 2012 | by ShaeSpencerSee all my reviews

"Roller Town" is the first film from the genius sketch comedy group Picnicface. I became a big fan of the group when they exploded on Youtube with viral hits like "Powerthirst" and "Hey Africa." I'm the kind of guy who started subscribing to individual members' channels, watching every obscure, random video they'd post, and I have loved every minute of it. So there was obviously some anticipation for this movie on my part.

In short, it did not disappoint.

The writing on the film is excellent. 90% of the jokes are good to great, a few, not so much. I was giggling throughout the movie. The goofy style and lighthearted spin on 70's pop culture was great fun. The soundtrack was surprisingly excellent. All of the Picnicface members in the film did a great job. Watch for a great scene-stealing performance from Brian MacQuarrie as Grandpa.

There are a few minor sound and pacing/editing issues, but these do not detract at all from a hilarious, entertaining film. Looking forward to more from these great humans in the future, collectively or as individuals.
