A comedic adventure that re-imagines Mark Twain's iconic literary characters of Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer as grown men in current day. Petty criminal Huck Finn hopes to leave his criminal life behind when he is released from a stint in prison, but his lifelong friend, and corrupt cop, Tom Sawyer, has other plans. Not ready to give up on his childhood fantasies of wealth and adventure, Tom forms the "Band of Robbers," recruiting their misfit friends Joe Harper and Ben Rogers, to join them for an elaborate plan to find a fabled treasure. But the plan soon unravels, thrusting the guys on a wild journey with dangerous consequences...

Sorry to interrupt. My name is Joe. What's your name?
That's pretty interesting man. We got the same name, we're in the same car... that's life I guess, three meals a day and funny moments like these.
You're... you're Injun Joe.
Some people call me that.
Why do they call you that if you're not even native american?
I guess I just identify with the culture and the aesthetic.
Isn't that kind of racist?
How is it racist to want to be more like another race?

Quirky, light-hearted and perfect for a bottle of bourbon
I just saw an "on-demand" showing of this movie at our downtown relic independent theater (the old Wurlitzer is still there from way back when!)The father-in-law of one of the leads was a high school friend, and a neighbor, and word spread through the grapevine asking everyone in our class to recruit three or four more friends to go along. We almost filled the enormous old theater! This movie is amazingly well done, and being done on a very tight budget made it all the more interesting. How did they do so much, so creatively and so well? The friend told us it had been considered for Sundance, receiving several nominations. It will be on Netflix soon, so look for it! And if you watch it through a haze of some premium bourbon, it would be even better!
