I'm one of the naive supporters of this Kickstarter project. I don't know why I felt there was hope that this movie could be any good. Zach wasn't kidding that this was a personal movie. I wish I could make a movie about me struggling with everyday problems, me enjoying myself with the kids, with total disregard for the paying audience. Could be that it's really about your life Zach, we sympathize with that. But other than trying to be original by not caring about creating a good story, the movie was completely 'meh' - I just watched the kickstarter promo video again and that was way more interesting. I feel cheated - it was a movie for you more than a movie for the rest of us. Hope you enjoyed it!
