Quotes

Rick Murphy: Can I ask you a question? I mean, I'm all for old fella's in the workforce, but couldn't you do Home Depot or shoppin' carts or somethin'? Repoin' cars might be a bit of a stretch at your age.
The Colonel: Let me tell you something. When I was a young fella', like yourself, I'd spend all my time dreamin' about the future... and then one day you stop... and you just dream about the past... I used to be good at this repoin' stuff... I think I can get 'er back.

unexpected fun
11 March 2005 | by robin-280See all my reviews

saw this film at the San Jose Cinequest film festival last night... wasn't sure what to expect from the festival catalog (another genre/period parody?), but i was laughing within the first few minutes... the cast is almost uniformly terrific with nicely nuanced performances, and props to Robert Culp who plays a wonderfully aged comedic extension of his younger self... shot in 35mm, the whole production is clearly the work of professionals (a fun past-time at Cinequest is counting the times a boom or shadow enters the shot or the crew shows in in the reflections... maybe the story was so compelling i didn't notice, but except for one brief moment in the desert, the DP earned their check (smile)... could benefit from a bit of trimming during the last 40 minutes, but the film is written right up to the end, and doesn't simply run out of steam... The Almost Guys is Definite Fun!
