Movie Info

Somebodies takes a lighthearted jab at what it is to be young, carefree, and reckless in America from a distinctly fresh perspective. Scottie, a 22-year-old African American college student, is just living life as it comes; he and his roommates are more than happy to live up to the standards of typical college students-partying, women, and flat-out fun. But eventually, Scottie's nonchalant approach toward life, combined with his love of a good time and appreciation of a "cold one," lands him in some hot water. Encircled by a wild group of friends, an eccentric love interest, off-the-wall family members, convicts, and a fire-and-brimstone preacher, Scottie's road to recovery ultimately becomes a hilarious journey of self-discovery. And the Lord said, "Let there be Hadjii." ...Can I get a hallelujah? From the alt-rock hotbed of Athens, Georgia, comes an invigorating new comedic voice in independent film. Triple-threat writer/director/actor Hadjii uses the distinct flavor of the South and an immensely talented supporting cast to create memorable characters and lines that will leave you laughing long after the film ends. By portraying young black men who aren't thugs or Mr. Nice Guys, he infuses the film with insightful perspectives on people who are living ordinary lives as they try to make sense of the senselessness that is America today.--© Sundance Film Festival

Somebodies adds up to little more than a series of uninspired skits untethered to any thematic or narrative substance.

Hadjii paints a vivid, funny, and engaging slice-of-life.

This might make a good rough draft for a screenplay, but it needs a lot more work before it's fit for the silver screen.
