Storyline

A hilarious and heartfelt look "behind the scenes" as a group of college kids spend their summer making a movie for their town's Film Festival. Cameras chronicle the tumultuous ups and downs (mostly downs) as an egotistical student Director rounds up his friends (and some bystanders) to help make his masterpiece: a movie that blends together all the greatest films ever made.

Lots of laughs in this one!
29 December 2018 | by fredwilharmSee all my reviews

I'm about twice the age of these filmmakers and with an age difference that large, humor usually gets lost in the translation. But I have to give it to them- they managed to pull off something really funny even when "budget challenged". The amateur filmmaking is what makes it funny- a "gaffer" swinging around huge living room lamp, the director explaining that he thinks a gaffer is someone who lightens up the atmosphere of a film set, Mom bringing a tray of cupcakes into the garage where they are shooting, and "craft services" ALWAYS being frozen corn dogs. I especially liked the "ac-TOR" (recruited from the multiplex due to his cinema experience) insisting on a trailer and being provided a U-Haul in the driveway. Anyone who has ever tried to make a film on the cheap can identify and will get a lot of laughs out of this one.
