After a group of friends witness a horrifying crime, they wonder how they were lucky enough to escape, unharmed, while one friend did not. Through this self-discovery they start to understand the meaning of their own hilarious yet twisted fate. As their time starts to run out, the chance at redemption isn’t too far behind.

1.0 out of 5 stars Total Wast of Time and Money December 25, 2010

There is nothing funny or entertaining about this movie.
It is mind-numbing beyond words. Definitely one to be missed.

1.0 out of 5 stars How to make a few extra bucks off of Zack Galifinakis December 15, 2010
Format:DVD
So I tried looking up this movie on IMDB.com, and it was no where to be found. Why? Because back in 2009 when it was made and Galifianakis was just catching on for The Hangover, this movie was called Little Fish, Strange Pond and the ads and posters had NOTHING to do with Galifianakis. Now, it's being released with him front and center (where it looks like an 8 year old photoshopped his head on someone else's body) and a new title to boot. Pretty safe to say, you should not waste your money on this blatant attempt to capitalize on The Hangover's success.

1.0 out of 5 stars Crapomy December 14, 2010
By David
Format:DVD
Terrible, terrible, tried to imitate "Snatch", FAILED. Crap, crap, crap, from acting to plot, crap, role credits. Rip it out and burn every copy you find, take the ashes and flush them down the toilet. What a freak show of a story.

3.0 out of 5 stars EVIL BEGETS EVIL February 7, 2011
Format:DVD
If you are a big fan of indie films steep in symbolism and Milton; one that makes you say WTF at the end of the movie, you might try this slow mover with tons of dialouge and f-bombs. Jack and Stephen are friends and while polar opposites they seem to know each other extremely well. Jack, who is filled with positive karma, although not all good, is always situated on the right side of Stephen who is filled with negative energy. Zach Galifanakis plays an adult store owner who deals to children and also sells drugs. There are two subplots that run through the story also. Tommy, the cop is investigating the disappearance of a girl and talk show host Dennis River (Jerry Springer type) somehow has a kid on stage who has admitted killing his parents. They all eventually come together. Much of the story is conversation between Jack and Stephen. The adult book store robbery was comical, but after that the comedy dies. The symbolism on the box is somewhat of a plot spoiler as Jack is made to look like the devil and Stephen the angel. There is a difference between being bad and acting bad, as the movie attempts to point out. At one point Jack almost quotes a Rolling Stone line, "Please to meet you, guess my name" from Sympathy for the Devil. Jack is a nickname for Satan. While attempting to figure out evil, Stephen Sweet asks Jack "Is masturbation evil?" Jack answers, "According to my mother, yes. Thank God she is dead."

After watching this movie I didn't know if I loved it or hated it. But I do know I won't be able to sit through it again to find out.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible even for deep thinkers and artists. December 20, 2011
Format:DVD
Okay, the movie isn't your typical Zack comedy. The title is misleading, the cover of the DVD is absolutely criminal if it's supposed to reflect the movie. If there's any comedy in it, it's dark. But there are reviewers here who suggest that if you are thoughtful and open-minded, you will "get" it and like it. Not so.

Obviously somebody wanted to make a movie about the relationship between good and evil, being and doing, life and death, etc., and have the opportunity to show some nasty blood and gore. But I don't see how the movie can engage anyone who does indeed THINK beyond the sitting-in-the-dorm-room-getting-stoned-eating-pizza-and-talking-about-the-universe level. I would LOVE the chance to see a good movie concerning these themes, but I've seen Frenemy and it just ain't it. The characters are poorly drawn -- neither fully-developed enough to be real people, nor stereotypical enough to be clear about what they are supposed to represent. THe "plot" is near-nonexistent; this is not a STORY -- it's a few strung-together vignettes of a rather unreal pair of protagonists who reflect on the philosophical "biggies." I mean, what about this movie makes it superior to reading the script? Not much, and that suggests somebody wasted a lot of money (no matter how relatively little they spent) to put it together. I suspect that reading the script without having seen the movie would expose how shallow the whole enterprise is. Somebody compared this movie to "Dogma" and I think that's a fair comparison -- except that Dogma, despite its many faults, at least was a MOVIE.

I salivate at the idea of watching a decent movie that addresses the topics Frenemy wants to. It's just too bad this one leaves my salivary glands dry.

This is a classic indy film. Brilliant writing and amazing acting. BEWARE: this film will make you think, not good for non-thinkers. Just playin, good for non-thinkers too.

This movie is not a Zach comedy, but he is great in the movie.

Definitely worth it!!

1.0 out of 5 stars A mismarketed and awful piece of straight-to-DVD cinema December 18, 2010
Format:DVD
There was only one reason I wanted to see this movie at all to speak of; just the fact that "Gilmore Girls"'s Liza Weil was in it. Outside of that series she has livened up many a dull project (including an episode of "Eleventh Hour" that was the poster child for the words 'procedural drama'), and I knew she could maybe do something with this.

All I have to say, thank goodness that a certain couponing site involving "Groups" and a company that vends DVD's from a "box" colored "red" offered me three free one-night rentals so I didn't have to waste anything but a twenty-minute hike to said vending machine, and not one red cent.

Liza only did this movie in the first place because her husband (Paul Adelstein from "Private Practice") was also in it playing some guy who robs a porn shop ran by Zack Galifinakis. Obviously they owed some kind of favor to Gregory Dark, because their performances here, along with Zack's, were the only good parts of the film. I really, really wanted this film to be more about Weil's Norma character playing up her feminine wiles to Adam Baldwin's LAPD cop Tommy to put a hit on her ex-boyfriend. If that was the movie, we'd be talking four stars.

But no. We get to spend 80 minutes with two idiots played by Callum Blue and Matthew Modine as they discuss porn, Traci Lords, a very odd cameo from Ron Jeremy, a bum fight, and a talk show parody that wasn't even funny in 1995. We get less than five minutes with Norma and Tommy before they either completely forget about her or Liza realized the dailies for this were awful and refused to come back to the film later on. Along with Zack Galifinakis.

This was a torture to sit through.
