"Pun"ishment at its finest
26 March 2014 | by BmoviesforeverSee all my reviews

Justen Overlander's word play in "The Bequeather" is fast and furious. No doubt the viewer will understand or catch myriad subtle (and blatant) references upon second or third viewings. Fine comedic acting, that brain teasing script and wonderful production values elevate this low-budget indie to the ranks of the big boys.

Overlander combines his love of such classic movies as "Young Frankenstein" and "Airplane" in his dialog, visuals, slapstick antics, and general all-around goofiness of the characters. You'll laugh, groan, scratch your head, rinse and repeat throughout.

The fine cast features Meisha Johnson, Tiffany Cornwell and Keri Bunkers as three estranged sisters who have to join forces to solve a puzzle that will lead to their inheritance from their dearly departed father. The bumbling men in their lives and two beyond-quirky neighbors (played by Overlander, Gary David Keast, Sid Korpi and Joel Thingvall, respectively) variously help and/or hinder their attempts.
