| Not great, but you'll be glad you caught the really worthwhile bits.
I bought the DVD of this because I'm pretty sure I went to graduate school with one of the minor, minor actors in this. While the film did have certain longeurs and I'm not sure the conception or its execution completely gelled, there were clearly many talented and charming actors in this movie. The casting director couple were very funny, and the DVD includes an extra showing their expanded and unexpurgated "interview;" it's maybe the best part of the whole production.

If you watch this because you're a rabid Rusty Joiner fan, you should know that he's only in the film for about a minute, but his bit is very funny and he does it well. Personally, I'm wondering about the incredibly handsome actor Christopher Showerman who plays "himself" in this. None of his credits on this site jump out at me and say "this is why you recognize him," but he is SO-O-O hot. Someone should tell him to get rid of his present IMDb headshot because it doesn't remotely do him justice.

Lots of fine comic work by a bunch of the actors here.
