Don't hesitate to buy or rent this very charming and approachable indy comedy. The cast, portraying the intricacies of relationships we can all relate to, was magnetic and utterly convincing to me. As I watched the film, I was thinking of people in my own life they reminded me of. Yes, I grew up in a small town by a river, too!

I want to compliment in particular the cinematography and the beautiful location shots taken in a town in Iowa. The charming and apparently well kept riverfront town, coupled with some brilliant fall colors, provided a pleasant canvas for all the action.

I hope you enjoy this film as much as I did!

I will be honest and say that I watched this film because Nicholas Downs is in it. He is such an exceptional actor and is going to do big things (just check out IS IT JUST ME?) I knew he had a supporting role so I had a feeling that I was going to be ff'ing to his scenes. To my surprise, I was drawn in immediately.

The story is simple - one day in the life of workers in a burger joint. The telling of the story is amazing. One central location. Five co-workers. A stream of faces appearing at the window - some causing laughs, some causing angst.

It brought to mind two of my favorite films - WAITRESS and EMPIRE RECORDS (hey, I worked at "that" record store for years.) The strength of character was like that of WAITRESS, the work-a-day claustrophobia like that in EMPIRE RECORDS (which also takes place all in one day.)

This one was definitely a sweet surprise!

I love this film and the wonderful Kate; I was hoping for a distraction and instead got completely lost in the characters and dialogue. The film is well written; funny and honest. The setting is pivotal to the plot, and the film's director and director of photography take full advantage of the contrast between the harsh neon and florescent lights of the snack shop and the depth of tone in the sky and river. The single setting is paired with the time frame of a single day--both elongating and truncating the movement of time through the film. The acting by all four female leads is sensitive, insightful, and engaging. The central plot is simple--can the lovely lead character find a boy worthy of her first kiss on her 16th birthday?--and it is balanced and tugged by enough interesting side plots--one for each character of the other three lead characters--to keep the central plot flowing at a clip. The humor in the film is rich and silly. While "16 to Life" may beg for comparison to "16 Candles"--a film I enjoyed as a teen--it is a far more substinative film. Truely a PG-13 film, it is not appropriate for younger viewers.
