Movie Info

Shot entirely in black and white and produced by the team of Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier, the duo behind Clerks (1994) and Mallrats (1995), this low-budget, independent Canadian production failed to stir up much excitement on the festival circuit. Co-writers, editors, and directors Matt Gissing and Malcolm Ingraham created the tale of a group of Generation X "slacker" types from the Great White North. Bored by their existence and running out of funds provided on the public dole, Ethan (Ethan Suplee), Meg (Renee Humphrey), Cassidy (Carmen Lee), Az (Jason Mewes), and Donner (Jason Lee) decide to repair to the forest in search of the legendary cryptozoological specimen known alternately as Bigfoot or Sasquatch. They're equally sure that they'll attain the peace of mind afforded by escaping society, but of course, their sabbatical is not quite what they expected. Joey Lauren Adams and Canadian comedian Bruce McDonald appear, as does Smith, in a cameo appearance as his recurring Silent Bob character. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Drawing Flies

It's a definite oddity but it should be looked at for just that reason especially if you love the "View Askewniverse".

Drawing Flies might be worth seeing once, mostly for curiosity as it is truly bizarre, but I doubt that even the biggest View Askew fanatic can vouch for this movie. It stinks! (First viewing - Late teen years)

Yawnfest that is only notable for being shot with the help of cast & crew of Mallrats on the off days. Bland characters go into the woods for some reason, they talk a lot about young people topics, swear a lot, have a minor scrape, find there was another reason for them being there and then it ends. Steals and hour of your life, the cost of its purchase and space on your DVD rack.
