With a cast of almost completely unknowns, I would say that anyone looking to get ahead of the times should watch this film. More than half of these young talented actors will be working frequently in the business by the time this dvd gets its 10th year special edition release. There is so much potential and raw talent lieing beneath these credits. If you are a casting director, you need to look no further for your next young comedic lead. The diversity in this movie is great, from physical humor, and slap stick, to dry, to bromance, and back to the unnamable craziness that goes on with Brock Mckenzie. And the fact that this movie was completly improvised makes each laugh more meaningful. You are being entertained on the spot. Just like going to a comedy show in LA or NYC. Such a great movie!

When the concept of Roughing it is first explained, it is somewhat puzzling. A movie without main characters is one thing, but for a movie to lack an entire script is a far greater challenge. To collaborate a sound, original story that is merely half an hour long is a feat in itself, but the cast of Roughing It manages a full length feature that is delightful to watch. These talented improvisers have truly been trained in their art- Roughing It is very charming, and- to put it bluntly- just plain funny.

The movie revolves not around a specific character's journey, but ties in many characters stories to create an intricately weaved plot. What the movie is about, essentially, is the experiences of distinct groups and how they interact with one another in the wilderness. The fraternity boys, come to bury their deceased frat brother, Interact with the girl tricked into camping with a "bad boy" and her would-be rescuer, who is being tracked by a team of sasquatch hunters that mistake him for bigfoot, but instead find a lost boy scout and scoutmaster. Each group has a distinct vibe that plays so well off the energy of the other groups that even the most zany characters seem grounded in reality.

Roughing It excels in encompassing all types of humor so that each audience member has something they can relate to. Whether you're into the wit of Scoutmaster Brazee (Scott Brazee) or the In-your-face Jacob (Jacob Wysocki), the movie has something that will draw a laugh from everyone. Roughing It allows each cast member to bring a unique style of comedy that reveals the actor or actress on a more personal level than theatergoers are used to. You begin to realize that the character is an exaggerated version of the actor.

As a fan of bath boys comedy on youtube, when I heard about this movie I had to see it. Overall, I was extremely satisfied. It was definitely very funny and surprisingly deep as well, especially considering its lack of a script. I highly recommend it.

Keep the videos coming guys.
