Hell yeah I had a great time watching this movie. Sure maybe I was setting myself up for some awkward moments by brining my girlfriend to watch it at the Calgary Underground Film Festival but i cant say i wasn't warned. Any synopsis on this film will tell you that its about three guys who are trying to kill a man who raped and murdered their fathers. I was hoping that maybe they would go light on the father raping and get right into the revenge plot but the truth is they didn't go light on anything but modesty and morality. For anyone wondering if they should watch this movie or not just know that it is extremely offencive, gory, wrong, and funny all at the same time and is absolutely never boring. Thats what i loved most about this movie is that it is never dull, not for a second. Sure there is one scene out of all the nasty shat going on that truly made me uncomfortable (it involved our introduction to the Tweek character), but it happened early on in the film and they definitely made up for it with the copious amounts of comedy in the second half. The dialogue and chemistry between the actors is spot on and hilarious and i both laughed out loud and cringed and groaned more than a couple times. The gore is hilarious, the characters are hilarious, the plot is hilarious, hell even everything i've heard from these guys on facebook and other blogs since watching this movie has been hilarious. Since watching this at CUFF i've become quite intrigued by this group. They are incredibly inspiring having made a film that looks 5 times more expensive than what they made it for. I've also picked up their "wtf is astron-6" DVD compilation which isn't quite as amazing as this movie but is just as inspiring. Now i honestly cant wait for "Manborg" which I'm guessing will be released approximately 2 months after whatever release date they first present us with but after watching Fathers Day I'm basically guaranteed it will be well worth the wait. If i won the lottery i would donate it to astron-6.
