Editorial Reviews

In this tough-as-nails, coming-of-age comedy, high school valedictorian Chris Johnson's plans for an Ivy League future are suddenly derailed by an unfortunate chem lab explosion. In order to keep the mishap off his permanent record, Chris must attend - and survive - Saturday detention under the watchful eye of the woodshop teacher (Jesse Ventura), an ex-Army Ranger who's more than a little rough around the edges. While dealing with hilarious complications involving his misfit classmates, including the nerds, the tomboy, the stoner and the bully-from-hell, Chris has just one goal in mind: to make it through the day...without coming unglued! NOW AVAILABLE DIRECTLY FROM THE DISTRIBUTOR (TIME DISTANCE & SHIELDING) FOR $9.99!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Indie Film with Famous Actors set in Boulder, CO September 7, 2010
By Brad F.
Verified Purchase
Recently saw this at a local preview showing and thoroughly enjoyed it! It's shot entirely on location in Boulder Colorado, and had an interesting mix of new local actors, as well as seasoned and acclaimed stars such as Jesse Ventura (who is surprisingly believable as a woodshop instructor), Mitch Pileggi (who played "Skinner" on the X-Files), and Don Davis (General Hammond from Stargate). The story line is fun (combining comedy and intrigue), and the scenery and production quality excellent. Definitely worth checking out.

Woodshop
1 Disc Widescreen, being released September 7, 2010

Remember "The Breakfast Club?" Well, "Woodshop," a film written and directed by Pete Coggan, is about an honors student played by Scott Cooper Ryan who has an accident in chemistry lab resulting in a Saturday detention at Woodshop with a bunch of other misfit students led by the shop teacher played by Jesse Ventura.

It looks and feels pretty low budget and is probably making Jesse Ventura long for the days of the first "Predator" film. Very basic stuff. There's an accident-prone genius, a bully, a tomboy who likes power tools and eventually our lead character, a best friend who feels let down, etc. A few of them are pretty good like Wendy played by Olivia Hendrick and Jesse Ventura nails the simple material very easily. Some moments work, but most don't.

One big problem with this film is all the flash-backs to when these students were kids to experiences that helped shape the people they are today. A couple of the kid actors are decent once again, but some are terrible. For instance, the kid who was supposed to be crying, but was laughing.

All the students get to make a personal journey, boy gets girl, everyone teams up against the bully to finally get what's coming to him (spoiler: being arrested for terrorism???). To sum up the entire film: cute, simple, ok but not very good.

Bonus Features: None

The movies that I purchase on amazon are always working and in great condition. It is easy to review content and make decisions for purchase. This is valuable to an instructor as they try to reinforce or study different subjects

5.0 out of 5 stars Woodshop delivers quality family fun! October 9, 2010
Verified Purchase
I was surprised by how much I found myself laughing at this film. The interplay between Jesse Ventura and his students (especially the lead & the villain) was really fun to watch, and I definitely see some emerging young stars in this movie. All in all, I think Woodshop delivers quality family fun with a bit of an edge!
