Editorial Reviews

Shawn is the founder of the Mesa Frozen Entree Enthusiasts Club. He has inspired this group of fanatical collectors to attempt to host the world's first Frozen Entree Enthusiasts Convention. Shawn also sings for a local punk band that has recently converted to Christian Rock as they find the Christian fans much easier to shock and impress. Milo Binder, a local Christian rock promoter and owner of an anti-abortion themed Christian cafe, assisted the band's conversion. As Shawn pursues the convention and Christian fame, Al (the bass player) pursues Shelly. Shelly is a mousy virgin who's infatuation with Shawn may be more than Al can overcome. For fans of quirky, indie films.

I saw a trailer for this film at the Nuart Theater in Santa Monica (they show independent films) months before it arrived and couldn't wait for it to show up. It just looked like something so different and fresh. I have to say, "I wasn't disappointed at all." If you're a collector junkie like myself (Beatle Conventions), you'll like it even more than someone else might. Whether you hit Comicons, Trek Conventions, etc..., you'll love it. These folks collect frozen dinners. When they get together for a special club meeting to talk about the new Swansons Dinner coming out you'll die laughing. They go over the exciting rumour that the artwork will be purple---WOW! The president of the club (Shawn) gets everyone excited because he knows someone at the local grocery store that might be able to get them all in at midnight for the big release date. Shawn and some of the guys are also in a punk band going nowhere until they switch to Christian Punk as The Christers. If you're not offended, it's a riot and the biggest reason that it's funny and works is because the music is fantastic and the lyrics are very clever and weren't just thrown in for shock value. Shawn Anders---the star and writer/director was there for the screening I attended. I asked about a CD release and he stated that he hopes it will come out as a release as well. I've got my fingers crossed. You can hear some of the music at the NBT site. They get the idea to change their music from the mgr. of the cafe they're hanging out in: The No-Choice Cafe next to "THE" clinic. Shawn's groupie (Shelly) works at the Wlliam Jefferson Clinton Abstinence Clinic and talks girls out of having sex on their hotline. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome June 29, 2006
Format:DVD
This movie is a great antidote to the mindless inoffensive trash that is apparently all Hollywood can bring itself to produce these days. If you appreciate offbeat indie comedy you should drop everything and buy this right now.

I think the reviewer who discusses at great length how this movie is "not anti-christian" is off the mark. Intentionally or not, this movie portrays all its most publicly-religious characters in a cynical light: the "Christian Profiteer" cafe proprietor, the foul-mouthed libertine Christian band singer, and the pathetic twenty-something-year-old virgin. I can't understand how anyone who takes their Christianity seriously is not going to be offended by this movie, but then there's many things I don't understand about such people; I'm not one of them, so for me it just made everything more obscenely funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cuts Like A Knife... December 8, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I grabbed this film because I saw Greg Behrendt was in it. He is and he's very funny, nailing the morning DJ act to a T. But the star of this film is the writing.

It skewers everyone from conservative abortion protesters to collector geeks to clowns. I always say that everyone has a passion that other people don't understand and this film underscores that.

Definitely grab a copy of this. If you're not easily offended, you'll be totally entertained.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightfully strange. Has something to offend everyone February 13, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My wife bought it because one of her students was in the film. Glad we did. This is one of the strangest, but funniest movies. It's not for everyone, because I am sure there is something in the film to offend everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bad Ass! December 27, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My buddie Steve is the drummer in the movie. He is credited as A-hole the clown. So I have a biased opinion of the movie. But yes, a funny film. Oh, and Steve says he will never tell his mom he was in the film, I think he is afraid of being disowned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious and incisive. September 25, 2009
By SB
Format:DVD
While somewhat derivative of the mockumentary style first pioneered by the movie Spinal Tap and later fully fleshed out by the crew responsible for Best of Show and other films, this movie is worthy of inclusion in the hallowed halls of that absurdist academy.

The easy targets spoofed by the film, including small-town hypocritical Christian rockers and the local abstinence counselling hotline, are ingeniously married to the completely original frozen food collection club idea, so that you can almost forgive the filmmakers for taking shots at sitting ducks. The characters and the actors who portray them are spot-on, compelling, and hilarious-- easily the best part of the movie. The specificity of the characters redeems the somewhat easy pickings nature of the satirical targets. This is the kind of "comedy gold" that you will want to watch repeatedly, and show to your friends.
