| Not good.
A coming of age story about a college low life who decides it's time to grow up. I really love rooting for the little guy and this was the first truly low budget independent film I saw at the Sundance Film festival. I overheard that critic Roger Ebert liked it the day before we saw it, so I was pretty jazzed. It was also one of the few film's we had tickets to before we even got into Park City, but sadly it turned out to be my least favorite film of the festival.

It started out pretty funny, with a couple funny lines and goofy characters, but quickly turned out quite bad with the characters (except the lead, I guess) never going anywhere as they were all stereotypical and one dimensional. The film ran long and ultimately became boring.

There were a couple exceptions (lead actress and preacher) but overall the acting was stiff (mostly from director/actor Hadjii himself who was in every scene). To be honest I don't know why this film made Sundance; however, I congratulate the filmmakers for accomplishing that milestone and I will leave it at that.
