Highly under-rated, well-done Indie film; delightful!!
This is quite a wonderful film. Touching and funny, above the level of most Indie films in terms of script, acting and film-quality. In fact the quality was *very* high, higher than I would ever have expected.
The script is clever, and a great cast only makes it better. Especially Dana Gould, who is perfect for his role! And look for great roles by Kathy Griffin, Ryan Stiles and Ian Gomez before their days on Newsradio and the Drew Carey Show, as well as a fun bit part by SNL cast member Julia Sweeney fresh from her bit role in Pulp Fiction.
There were some glitches, some scenes were a but rough, and Courtney was a bit bland (though her parents were *priceless*!!, but they weren't enough to bring down the film
until the end. The end was a total disappointment, mainly because it was predictable from the beginning of the film that it would end that way, and I was really hoping it would surprise me. A generic, cheezy, schlock ending.
Overall: a great watch, I'd definitely recommend this as a quality Indie film deserving stronger recognition. If it weren't for the ending I'd give it an easy eight, but as it stands: 7/10.
