A funny film.
Scalpers is a fun romp. Great, comedic dialogue, even if it does remind me a little too much of Kevin Smith. There are some hilarious moments in this film about the lives of a group of tickets scalpers and hustlers. My favorites are the pool scene and the date. It's definitely hard to mix drama and comedy, but this dramedy does it pretty well, save for a few over the top moments. But, hey, I cared about the characters. I laughed, I cried. What more is there to say? I dig independent film, because, despite some obvious weaknesses, you get something different at least. Some wonderful performances, cool direction, and solid writing. A unique movie that I enjoyed.
