5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! May 22, 2011
I thought this film was well done! I can see why it's compared to Juno and Donnie Darko but it is definitely unique all on its own. I saw it this morning and haven't been able to stop thinking about it. Reece Thompson, Kat Dennings, and Josh Lucas were all great! It's a shame it's not very popular. Then again, I'm a big fan of independent films with unique story lines as opposed to feature films that seem so repetitive.

By the way, the soundtrack is AMAZING! Cannot wait to buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars dreamy cult classic August 28, 2012
By sarahd
This was a dreamy little movie that I'd heard was becoming a cult classic. And since I love those kinds of movies I had to check it out. I would start by emphasizing that it is not a normal teen film in any way and if you're looking for a chick flick you're going to be disappointed. But for me this movie came out of nowhere -- well, Canada, I guess -- and shocked me by dealing with feelings and emotions through very surreal and sometimes brilliant film-making. The plot is messy, very messy, but that feels like part of the point: things are left dangling, weird events keep piling up, and all the while the movie is kept alive by superb acting by Kat Dennings and the wickedly clever double-edged dialogue. In some ways the story-telling is more like a book than a movie. I read one review that compared it to a Murakami novel and I thought that was a pretty apt comparison. Not for everyone, but definitely for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars At Some Level We're All Kidding Ourselves November 25, 2013
This indy film takes a look at a small town, its inhabitants and how they/we float through life not facing the reality of things.

Here's the scoop. Caroline (Kat Dennings) is from the big city. She's bright, savvy and is having a difficult time adjusting to this town where an industrial fire raging just off its borders, the kids imbibe copious amounts of alcohol and there is a serial killer on the loose. So what does she do? She puts the moves on her English teacher and dates a nice, local schoolmate to cover her tracks. Said teacher dates the school's female Phys Ed teacher to cover his. Things don't go very well.

This has a lot of cool things happening. Lights, sparklers and fireworks are nearly ubiquitous. They appear, in one form or another, in many scenes. Then there's the ominous plume of smoke, off in the distance, issuing from the burning factory. It lends a sense of dread to the proceedings. I also like how certain scenes are repeated using different characters. I thought it was a nice touch. How about the characters. Thurston (Reece Thompson) is a good hearted, smart enough guy who gets too high too often. He likes Caroline. She IS witty and her sharp tongue might be the slap he needs to wake him up from the mind-numbing existence of small time life. How about Barry Anderson (Josh Lucas) the English teacher. What a knucklehead. He has to know, in the back of his mind, that sleeping with a student can only end badly. Then to think she's the love of his life?! Grow up!

Like all good indy flicks this is all writing and acting. The cast is more than decent and it's peppered with some really nifty tunes as well. It's directed and shot professionally. I didn't see the bones showing. So, if you're prone toward this sort of thing this is a good outing.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'M READY TO BE TUTORED August 7, 2011
The moody Caroline Wexler moves from the big city to a small town where the kids do a lot of drugs and are inbreed losers with 6 toes. The story at times is third person, at other times Caroline narrates. She tells us of a tale of a girl in school who worked as a stripper until 2AM then showed up for school and took extra classes. The football team, she tells us, would heat up quarters and throw them at her while she walked through the halls. A "serial killer" (dubbed a serial killer after first body was found) kills the girl and they find marks of heated quarters on her legs.The waste dump fire and serial killer were under utilized as metaphors/symbols.

After her death, it appears the overly mature Caroline is the prettiest girl in school. She seduces her teacher and a classmate. As time goes on we discover the teacher has the persona of a psychotic character portrayed from his own novel and has developed an unhealthy need to continue his relationship with Caroline.

The movie makes clever use of juxtapositions to create humorous scenes. There are also slow scenes and slightly annoying first person narration. The soundtrack was fairly lame. The climax scene is supposed to be a culmination of the scenes building up upon each other. In an indie, it is not necessarily predictable, but it is at least metaphorically or symbolically part of the movie. This one was not. It was a complete let down and a lack of closure by the writer. Want to watch a clever indie, try "Chumscubber."

4.0 out of 5 stars A good role for her August 3, 2014
By velly
I just happened to be watching the W.B one day and caught a show called "Raising Dad, with Former Full House Actor Bob Saget, who
played the Widower, as always, featuring Kat Dennings . As I watched for a couple of episodes I was blown away by kat's performance.
A good role for her, but not so good for bob, who I think needed to abandon his roots from Full House . If he had done that, the show might of
went another season.

I actually very much enjoyed the movie. It wasn't quirky just to be quirky, and I greatly appreciate that. It wasn't pseudo-profound and it was actually pretty deep. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars How many story elements can you cram into one movie
So many that all the viewer is left with are unrealistic characters, horrible acting, and a story that depicts multiple social issues without saying anything significant. Read more
