A mild and entertaining comedy.

Michael Mueller's first feature film, 'The E-Listers: Life Back in the Lane' is a short but entertaining comedy. It is a humorous take on the life of a bunch of people considered insignificant in the entertainment industry: the E-Listers or the background extras. Most of it takes place on set, where a diverse group of background extras are waiting for their turn to make their appearance on the big screen, however insignificant their role may be. The movie revolves around how their day is spent on set, with some of them thriving on trying to put others down while others are just trying to overcome their fright of working with a star they are obsessed with. All the characters are enjoyable and seem natural and realistic. The PA, Derrick (Keller Fornes), is a hilarious character; he tries to manage the extras as they get on his nerves. The storyline is not complicated and that is reasonable since it is an entertaining movie, filled with witty humor that seems believable rather than silly and its heartwarming ending complements it. The cinematography and sound effects are pleasing and the only thing missing is a good soundtrack. It is an amusing film perfect for a movie night with the family. Mueller has done a great job giving the viewers an enjoyable experience, not too long not too short.
