I have been meaning to check out the TV show, so when the film came out on DVD I immediately picked it up. What I ended up with was a deliciously bizarre, well acted comedy which, unfortunitely, never quite goes as far as it could to push the envelope, offend and just plain old mistify with its off-the-wall humor.
The film pokes fun at the conventions of the teen film, but it is not a spoof. It exists in a universe by itself and you will either be into it or not. I most certainly was, though I feel the film played it too safe at times.
Fans of Stephen Colbert, black humor and independent comedy will find plenty to like here. I did, and seeking out the show all the more eagerly.
