Trivia

Charles De Rosa, the cinematographer, was the very first person outside of the producers to read the script. He had previously shot "THE RED ACE COLA PROJECT" for Susan Metzger. Dave Ciszewski, an additional producer, was also the 1st AD on that film. See more »

Quotes

Ted Float: If you see any of the Horvath people, tell them that I would fuck both my parents on national television for that job. I'm done with this local crap. County allocation, zoning problems, millage issues... I'd like to take a giant shit on the lot of them.

This is a Waste of Time
9 December 2013 | by VanBooterSee all my reviews

Well looking at IMDb that's the impression I got. However I went against common sense and got hold of a copy and guess what?, it's not a bad little movie.

The acting was good, especially Marty Lodge who played Dr Mike, and Sean Spence who played Steven Mime the ever so nice radio host who was feeling the pressure to become a "Rock Jock" and improve on ratings. Toks Olagundoye what can you say other than.... ummmm The script was OK although with no surprises in store, and I did laugh a few times which for an American comedy is a good sign with my weird sense of humour.

I did read this had very little screening which probably accounts for the lack of interest, but if you are suffering negative thoughts because the storyline mentions "political" then don't let that put you off.

My only criticism is the choice of shooting in Black and White, but that applies to any film. I know the reasons film makers offer for it's defense, but personally I find it distracting, and I just couldn't see any reason for using it in this film other than for cheapness.

So all things considered I rate it 6/10 I was pleasantly surprised.
