Editorial Reviews

Aspiring filmmaker Benjamin Boyd has one goal in life: escape college alive...but with overbearing parents, brain-dead jocks, pretentious film students and an evil university faculty in your way - that proves no easy task.
Nowhere Fast is a comedy about school and a drama about life. Most of all, it s an adventure that proves just how important it can be to choose your own path.
Special Features: Filmmaker Commentaries, Outtake/Improv Reel, Deleted Scenes, 2 Bonus Short Films, Trailers, Still Photos

5.0 out of 5 stars A College Movie Like No Other College Movie January 5, 2010
Format:DVD
Finally there's a movie that actually portrays college as the Sisyphean screw job it actually is. And it does it with a sense of humor.

This movie is for anybody who has suffered through a liberal arts degree (or any degree for that matter) and come out the other end feeling embittered and cheated. If you're sick of seeing college portrayed in movies as one long frat party then this is definitely for you. It's bizarrely funny and takes aim at the annoyances of the day-to-day collegiate grind in a way like nothing else I've seen. Our everyman protagonist, Ben, just wants to make movies (a simple enough task you'd think seeing as he's gone to college for just that). And yet he is fought every step of the way by his university which is populated by dim counselors, Mr. Hyde-esque science teachers, and what I find to be the most perfect sendup ever of your average full of himself arts degree student.

As cracked as the movie is, it's the most honest portrayal of the college experience I've found.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent college-age folley full of laughs. January 3, 2010
Format:DVD
This movie has a weird sense of humor, but it's well placed above most college themed comedies as it doesn't stoop to tits and toilet humor. Maybe quirky is a more appropriate term than weird, but nevertheless a cut above your typical direct-to-DVD American Pie folly. Are some of the performances over the top? Absolutely, but it seems to be more of a style choice than a mistake. Matt Ryan is a future film maker to look out for, and this will be one of the minor stepping stones toward full-on feature film making. Get in on it now so you can be an elitist snob who can say you were truly a fan before anyone else. (I know I will)

And if you want more funny from this original mind, also check out the slightly less original (but still hilarious) Andrew and Matt Show. Google it.
