This is a film that was done by me and some friends on thanksgiving of 2002 so its not to old. Im sure everybody can relate this this film. We were all sitting around trying to think of a movie to film and adding ideas. So we turned what we were doing into a movie. Watch and enjoy.

Interesting idea, this one. Enjoyable to watch and the cast/crew (not sure which they were!) were all interesting and held a presence on-screen. I felt the concept was better than the actual execution - the second half seemed to lose its way a little, whereas the first half was building up and introducing the idea very nicely. With a slightly better structure this could be something really rather special and unique.

The bloopers seemed were as long as the entire movie. smile

Thanks Tarn. Yea we had alot of footage and with that came the outtakes ha. We are actually planning to shoot a "Take 2" in a week or 2. This wil be put together better. All of Take 1 was improv and spur of the moment. Take 2 will be thought out. Aaaaanyways, thanks for the comments man.

denise - I couldnt tell u what that song was if my life depended on it. Like I said, it was made a year ago and at the beginning how i said "Its 5 oclock in the morning".. well.. that was true. Thats when I was editing it, ha, i was half awake.. we all were haha. To tell u the truth I was so tired i barely remember editing it ha. Sorry man, maybe somebody else will no after watching it.

Isn't it 'Die Another Day' by Madonna? Incidentally, a song I rather dislike...although I could just about tolerate it here, as opposed to in the Bond film, where it was just horribly out-of-place.

Sweet movie!!

You guys are funny...it's nice to see people just going and having fun, and not worrying about every little detail. Audio could have obviously been better, but the idea was sweet!!! hope to see more from u

a 121 is when you get your friend to log on as a guest to write a good review of your movie so that you can respond back, making it seem like there's a lot of interest in your movie when in actuality it's just you talking to your friends. it also means when someone gives you a melvin right after you've had penile reconstructive surgery
