5.0 out of 5 stars campy and loveable February 19, 2010
Format:DVD
Yes, this film is campy - but in a delightful way. When I watched this film with my students for the first time (I, too, teach high school theatre), they laughed and joked at the cheesy bits, but rioted when I forgot to show the last 7 minutes. They loved it!

This film has more heart than many Hollywood and Indie films out there, and as it blends so well with much of my curriculum (theatre superstitions, Shakespeare, etc), I will continue to watch it every year until the dvd wears out. My students watch Noises Off after their first play, and this one after their second - as a treat, and as a nod to their new understanding of backstage etiquette.

I highly recommend it, especially for those who love fun films, despite less-than-stellar production values.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute! Fun! Inspiring March 2, 2010
Format:DVD
A friend suggested I see this film and I groaned, weary of any small-budget film. I'm an actor who worked in Chicago and L.A. and, thus, have had the misfortune of sitting through many bad movies in my effort to be a good friend or at least a supportive peer.

But it's rare for someone to suggest a small-budget film to me that doesn't involve showing up to a screening or giving a favour in any way, so--- So I put it on my Netflix list to avoid any feelings of *arrrrgh I want my money back!*

But this was a really nice surprise! The story is cute and not that far from reality - yes, even the ghosts. Kinda. I spent 6 months working with a classical rep company in LA who call a Masonic temple home. We had many creepy ghostly moments there! Of course, the boyfriend-following-his-ambitious-girlfriend-to-Hollywood story is sadly very common in L.A. too. As is the opportunistic nature of some of these characters. And the surprise reveal about one of the characters near the end made me laugh.

I was really impressed with the special effects given this is a small budget film!

The story, again, too cute. The characters lovable- and I've met all of them in my years acting.

I've now watched it twice and still smile and giggle through it. Very very cute film!

Why 4 vs. 5 stars? I reserve 5 for Scorsese, Almodóvar, Bergman, Coen - top level direction and resources. So- 4 from me is pretty darn good!

Even though this movie was made on a dime, it has twice the energy of a lot of the comedies I've seen lately. I can imagine anyone who's ever been in a theatrical production will have a blast watching this movie. But it's hardly a requirement. The cast is hilarious, and effects are pretty solid for such a modestly budgeted films. I gave it 5 stars because it was such a nice surprise. It really brightened my day.

1.0 out of 5 stars Seriously - one of the worst films of ALL TIME!!! February 19, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
OK. I got snookered.

I am I HS theatre teacher, and I received an unsolicited ad for this film through my school email. We do a Shakespeare every other year, so I regularly have a unit on the Bard in my advanced acting class. Reading all the "rave reviews" at their website - and being sympathetic to the plight of independent film producers - I broke down a bought a copy. (Actually, I bought it through Amazon which was cheaper than on the film's dedicated website....) I thought it might be instructive or at least a bit of "fun" for my class.

Hmmm.... Worst mistake of my life: A. buying stock in Chrysler, or B. buying this film. (gotta think about that one....)

This was without a doubt the most amateurish "professional" film I've seen in decades. Bar none. How it got made is a mystery to me - no doubt there are some maxed out credit cards and former friends and relatives who are now screening their phone calls.

Let's forget for a moment that the script is dreadful: full of clichés, wooden dialogue and contrived contrivances! (I actually could go to town on the lumberingly inept script - but as bad as it was, it wasn't the worst aspect of the production. There are millions of bad scripts out there. Serendipity or tenacity got this one produced. We'll spare Mr. Gold the drubbing he deserves. I'm limited to 1K words.)

Let's also forget the less than stellar production values: better production design, properties, makeup artists, lighting, etc. can be purchased when the $$$ is there. It obviously wasn't.

I prefer to focus on the Acting/Directing. As a failed actor myself, I never review the "quality" of an actor's performance.
