Exposing some of Omaha's hidden treasures
1 July 2000 | by jimbunny99See all my reviews

I've seen this movie about a dozen times. It's always fun to see places and people you know or recognize in a movie, but in this case, it's especially exciting to see actors whom I have come to know as true treasures and stalwarts of Omaha's arts community. The movie is silly, but in a very loving way. And if I had not seen this movie, I might never have visited Carhenge!
