I love it when a plan comes together.

This EXTREME Independent film works because: A) the cast has enormous chemistry and B) because some of the jokes actually do land. In fact, this is an 80% comedy over horror, and I get the jokes. It's just that - they were trying SO HARD and a lot of the jokes did make me laugh. It was the thought that counted.

Basically, an Office Space of Workaholics get laid off and they drunkenly decide to kidnap the ex-boss's daughter for severance pay. Only, she's got her own stalking issues to deal with, herself. And now, so do they.

What really works here is the on-screen chemistry. It's not the best shot indie film I've seen (WAAAAAY too many closeups!! And from a lower angle.) But the dialogue never ended and the characters continued to very nicely feed off each other. Again, I laughed out loud a few times and that kept me going and warranted a recommendation.

***

Final thoughts: Funny, Amazon Prime told me this INDIANA-made film is not available in my region, but I found it rather easily and for free on YouTube. My two favorite quotes had me pause the movie I was laughing so hard:

"I agree with the gay mouse." - Delivery Driver

And, of course, "You really are an asshole, Steve," - Wife
