Emotional eating meets minimum wage blues, miraculously pulling off being outrageously hilarious while always remaining respectful of its persecuted portly protagonist, as it burrows into the heart and soul of small town dreams and big appetites.

Really has a lot of soul and honesty. I loved the lead character here.

Such a good movie. I loved the plot, the characters and they way they made the movie. It's sad, emotional and at the same time ironically funny. Very lovable main character.

I thought this was a great great movie. The plot was simple, and much more real life than movie, and I loved that about it. I don't really have a whole lot to say about it though. Haha. And... I had NO idea there was another Baldwin brother. Throughout the movie, I was thinking "Wow! That guy looks so much like Alec Baldwin!" ... William Baldwin? Surprise surprise!

Pretty good indie comedy-drama in the vein of "Napoleon Dynamite."

Good dark humor, excellent performances, interesting story. Nothing more, nothing less.

Even though American Fork (Humble Pie) is very charming and definately has its moments of humor,you ultimately end up wishing the dramatic elements of the film (while not bad) would have hit just a little bit harder.

This movie is as gut wrenching as it has heart, and while it preys on the naivete of it's star, Hubble Palmer, it brings to life a point when even the most gullible of people need to learn some backbone, some right from wrong, to stand up and say: "I'm mad as Hell, and I'm not gonna take it anymore!"

William Baldwin essentially plays himself, a second string actor who appears at first as a mentor, and then as a jerk who inserts himself into Tracy's (Palmer) life via his sister's love interest, ignoring Tracy and stealing his re-energized dignity. Tracy binge eats to cover his deep sadness, which carries the 'heavy' drama aspect of this dramedy.

He also takes out his anger on a fellow-coworker, Helen, who is just as troubled and a loner as him. He finally becomes self-motivated to steal thousands of dollars from the company he's worked at for 11 years, when he realizes he is one of many assistant managers, and not somebody important. But you still feel uneasy, like he's being had, set up by his new gang of no-good friends. And then....

This is a very well-crafted movie that deserves to be watched. See it!!!

the bad ronald reference alone makes this movie worth watching

Far too predictable.

I really liked this movie! Tracy Orbison is just a genuine person who gets taken advantage of by alot of the people in his life, yet he stays true to himself thoughout.

A decent and probably overlooked movie with some solid acting and a wide range of emotions on display, although it doesn't really come completely together or reach much of a resolution. We're left to infer some things about the future of Tracy. I do admit that changing the ending would have probably been a tough sell, though, and I certainly laughed at Helen's reaction to Tracy's poetry.

I had a difficult time staying interested.

I had first seen Hubbel Palmer in the Sasquatch Gang, but this film makes up for it. He is a very likable actor and really brings his character to life.
The film itself is filled with a mix of comedy, drama, and...humble pie!

Unfortunately this independent film is hurt by its dry story and pathetic antagonist,and instead of a delicious treat i was hoping to be it left a bad taste in my mouth.
