4.0 out of 5 stars Deserves to be seen February 23, 2009
People in the film industry will tell you that every once in a while a film just deserves to be made. No matter that there is no money, no budget, no all-star cast. It simply deserves to be made.

And when the stars align just right, reviewers will tell you that same film simply deserves to be seen.

Pope Dreams is just that sort of film.

Made on a shoestring budget with only a handful of sets, an indie sound track, and a combination of young unknowns and seasoned vets working for scale or less, this film is a gem.

Combination boy-meets-girl and coming of age story, Pope Dreams weaves several subplots together to form a tapestry as rich as life itself. In fact, it is the interweaving of these subplots, so like the messy, cluttered, unplanned, and usually out-of-control reality most of us live, that gives this film its engaging attraction.

Andy (Phillip Vaden) is a going-nowhere 19 year-old. He plays the drums in a noisy alt band, works in the back of the stereo store his father manages, and seems mostly aimless. His one goal when we meet him is to fulfill what he believes to be his mother's dying wish.

He gets sidetracked when a local Valley Girl (Marnette Patterson), in an inane, unfeeling, and completely selfish attempt to con her father into something she wants, picks Andy virtually out of a hat to be her father's worst nightmare. The wrinkle in all this is that Andy is not only the sort of guy her father would like, but he is also the kind she might fall for.

The boy-meets girl parts are predictable enough...but the twist is that the clever script takes an unexpected left turn and delivers to Andy not only something he could never have foreseen, but something better than the girl.

4.0 out of 5 stars No Budget, No Major Stars, No Hype. Just Fine March 31, 2010
I watched this movie mainly because I wanted to see Marnette Patterson. Turned out this was a really good indie flick about love, music and growing up.
Watched mainly because of Patterson, but it was Julie Hagerty that really gives the most memorable performance. Her portrayal of the dieing mother was totally believable both emotionally and physically. She really appeared as if she was dieing.
As for Marnette. She's done numerous television and supporting roles, when is she going to get a really serious starring role? She's a good actress and is a lot more interesting than some of her peers. I mean if they can give Miley Cyrus a major dramatic starring role, then they should find one for Patterson because she's a helluva lot better as an actress. It's nice to see her in a movie where she isn't being terrorized by giant bugs or having her eyes burnt out with a cigar by a vengeful ghost.(i liked both those movies)

4.0 out of 5 stars very emotional movie February 21, 2012
By dkw
Verified Purchase
I ordered this movie because REX SMITH was in it and I am collecting all things I can find about him, so if you are a REX SMITH fan I would definitely get this movie. It was a very emotional movie and well acted. Enjoyed all the actors in this movie. The only negative thing I had was some of the language. Enjoyed the deleted and blooper scenes also. I would buy this movie again.
