Movie Info

Young Brooklyn musician Max decides to go on a Caribbean cruise alone when his girlfriend Willow dumps him cold two days before the trip. Once in Jamaica, Max quickly escapes the tourist zone for more "authentic" surroundings and in the process is robbed of his possessions and is stranded, and literally misses the boat. As Max sets out for the American Embassy in Kingston on foot, Jamaica is waiting to meet him with unexpected and extraordinary encounters, including a full-moon celebration with the legendary reggae group The Congos, and a dreamy stay with a Rasta prophet.

The immediacy of the filmmaking helps to fill the void, and Bones' unaffected performance has its moments.

Top Critic

Slight but winning and often funny, the scrappy Amerindie Wah Do Dem is a fish-out-of-water comedy driven by Sean "Bones" Sullivan's offbeat performance.

Audience Reviews for Wah Do Dem

This exercise in no-budget indie fluff feels as empty as most, while sparing us the usual apartment location in turn for some great scenery.
