Takes a bit to get going but once it does it's really funny. I like small town movies where everyone's wardrobe didn't make it out of the 80s. Judah Friedlander is funny and Paul Schneider is flippin' hilarious.
featuring one of the most irritating characters in recent memory and just so-so coincidental-sequences-petty-crime-comedy (strangely it really does feel like its been done tons of times before) plot, I regrettably have to say this is a minor waste of time.
A really cool cast in a fun quirky movie that is an easy watch....don't expect too much from this thin plot and at times rigid acting.....Set in a small town in New Hampshire and about a wanna be criminal legend who just does not have the brains or the braun to carry it off. It's been done before, and a lot better, but it's not without its funny moments....especially the hardware store guy who gives more than most.
There were times when I wanted to turn this movie off and times when I genuinely laughed out loud. You never really know what you are gonna get from a ThinkFilm. In the end it wasn't terrible and the irony of it all was amusing. Rugged wants so badly to have this image of a tough criminal and in the end he gets that but in reality he actually dies and his body is buried underneath a bunch of trash. It made me smirk.
A little slow, kinda boring at times but Lagrange keeps you interested with his somewhat dim-witted comedy. Not enough Zooey by any means. I like the message though, sometimes the image or the legend is so much easier to grasp than the truth. If we all lived with the reality and not the fantasy this would be a pretty boring existence.
