The story of a man on a cruise who becomes stranded in Jamaica, only to have things become more complicated when he's robbed of his passport, belongings, shirt and shoes. The film is not only a beautiful cinematic retreat to the glorious country, but also a gripping and highly-relatable journey. I highly recommend adding this to your Hulu plus Queue if you love travel films and / or Jamaican culture.

Well done for no budget at all. Norah Jones looks prettier than ever. Liked it even though it didn't have a set storyline.

Another indie flick shot on a low budget with a reality-television style.
Wasn't bad but nothing memorable.

Made for a mere $75,000, the film's a portrait of an American out of his environment and out of his depth..

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.

Exudes a certain winning low-key charm... Between the crisp photography of New York by night, the bright island colours and its fleeting Norah Jones cameo, frankly it looks too good for mumblecore, and the clearance costs for the hipster soundtrack alone would presumably keep an Andrew Bujalski funded for the rest of their career. Where "Wah Do Dem" really differentiates and distinguishes itself, though, is in its ability to look beyond its protagonist's narrow worldview. The cruise takes place in the week leading up to the 2008 Presidential election, and Chace and Fleischner are vaguely critical of their self-absorbed slacker of a lead, drifting through life - all skateboards and headphones - until he's forced to reconnect with those around him; "The Harder They Come"'s Carl Bradshaw enters at a crucial juncture as a village mystic leading this errant knight back to the path of righteousness. If you were feeling less than tolerant, you might note the film's resemblance to an overstretched Gap Year anecdote, but the writer-directors are better placed to appreciate the value of lived experience: finally - and unlike a lot of mumblecore - "Wah Do Dem" goes somewhere.

I‚??ve never seen a ‚??mumblecore‚?? film before, but apparently this is one of them. Inspired after winning a cruise, filmmakers Ben Chace and Sam Fleischner decided to use the opportunity to make a feature, following musician Max (Bones) as he cruises to Jamaica where he finds himself stranded and at the mercy of the local characters. Despite its micro-budget, Wah Do Dem is fresh, engaging and boasts a fabulous soundtrack too.
