First full-length feature.... and it's GREAT!
12 November 2008 | by grodyzoSee all my reviews

If you have a chance to catch this movie at one of the other festivals, it's definitely a must-see. Of the movies I saw at the festival, this was by far the bast. I was a little apprehensive, knowing that this was the writers' and director's first full length, about the laugh meter but those worries were quickly put to rest in the first few minutes. The character development was definitely at the right pace. The settings, or feel, for all three "groups" were exquisitely done with the use of color, wardrobe, film type and camera angles. Very unique! By far though, the script was simple, great comedy. I wasn't the only one laughing trust me. The theater was small, but very well filled, around 100-120, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. At least it sure sounded like they did. :-) All I can say is "See it!". You will undoubtedly hear about these creators in the future.
