Not a classicBy Jockanese (7 reviews) from Scotland , 11 Feb 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]Whilst not being a poor film it just doesn't really start. The acting is good, the casting was good, the production quality is also good but it didn't meet my expectations. For being a comedy it barely made me smile nevermind laugh. Where the film goes wrong I can't really put my finger on. If you are a fan of the genre or any of the actors I would say watch the film but if you are just looking for a good comedy, this isn't one of them, hugely disappointing.

Harmless funBy Colonel1968 (254 reviews) , 30 Apr 2013This was OK, bit dull but not harmful, I definitely didn't think I had lost a few hours of my life, never to get them back put it that way
Don't take a chance.By walker1984 (11 reviews) , 21 Apr 2013I will try any movie staring justin long as he is hilarious. But this one is a miss really not funny.
One of the best little films I have seen in agesBy a customer , 17 Feb 2013I have never left a review on here before, but with all the lukewarm/negative responses to this film I thought it needed some balance. This film is great. If you're looking for Dodgeball comedy, you won't get it. If you're looking for Die Hard action, you won't get it. What you will get is a great little tale, almost like a cross between Be Kind Rewind and the Station Agent, with great dialogue, a brilliant cast, and a plot that just keeps moving along nicely. I had to leave this review, because someone ought to say that this is a little gem of a film and deserves much more attention.
Dull, blahBy a customer , 18 Jan 2013Nice scenery and acting was fine, but the storyline was too dull. To have a small town story where very little happens, you need a way better script than this film had. Didn't laugh, cry... nothin'
Take a chance on this oneBy yankeevicar (1 review) , 24 Nov 2012I enjoyed this much more than I expected. The writing is both intelligent and funny. Poor film quality but better than average substance.
