The acting is good, the turf is familiar, and the mood is sweet without causing diabetes.
New York Post:
The movie, which looks like it was made on the cheapest camera borrowed from the A/V club, was apparently based on the experience of its writer, Reed Fish, who should either await more interesting experiences or work up some imagination.
Some nice performances (Fisk is especially appealing as Reed's love interest) and a go-nowhere midfilm meta shift don't propel the movie beyond its pat life-lesson intentions.
Pic's power lies not in postmodernism but in its take on how rural youths relate to the contemporary scene.
Add a bunch of indie bands, find a Braff look-alike (Jay Baruchel) to play the lead, top it off with some obscure animal hybrid -- a zorse instead of a liger -- and you've got writer Reed Fish's can't-fail debut.
