Unlike all of the other 15 people who have "reviewed" this film so far, I am actually an objective reviewer who is not affiliated with the movie.
I checked all of the other 15 "reviews," and all of them are written by people who are obviously affiliated with the movie (since, if you click on "See all my reviews" for each of them, this is the only thing they have ever reviewed on Amazon). That's a dead giveaway. One of them even admits to being affiliated with the movie.
Yet, despite these 15 other meaningless reviews, this actually is a really good movie. I wasn't expecting much, given that it was obviously a low-budget production. However, I was pleasantly surprised. It was authentic, fast-paced, and smartly written. The characters were likeable, and virtually everything in the movie was realistic. The writer/director also obviously has some unique creativity, which he wove into the story in some interesting ways.
If this guy could get funded with a larger budget, he could really make a name for himself with some high-quality, innovative, and entertaining movies.
The only problem with the movie (other than the somewhat dark, grainy, and slightly "washed out" color quality that is common with film in low-budget movies) is that two of the four main characters look so much alike that it took me about half of the movie to distinguish between them, causing me to miss some of the plot advances for each of these characters.

The writing is genius. People who love playing with words will enjoy the visual and spoken puns and twists. The acting and directing are great. The movie is very engaging and relate-able, and (spoiler alert) there is no cliche Hollywood ending. A superb indie.

This movie was bar none one of the most entertaining movies I have seen this year. I am not even beginning to kid on this. The script was tight, the humor poignant and deliberate while still being uproarious as well as meaningful. There were times I wondered if the protagonist, I'll call him Frank, didn't wonder a bit more about his role as a ninja. I mean they didn't even mention the fact he was a ninja once in the movie! If the film has one flaw, it would be that they not once addressed the fact that Frank, I'll call him Bill, that Bill was a ninja with super powers kinda like Sub Zero in Mortal Kombat [sic]. So Bill has this other life as a ninja named Doshie. Doshie runs around saving peoples lives but at the same time, struggling with his own past. You see Doshie, also known as Mariah, is actually the three headed daughter of the god Namoramicon, the deity in charge of children who sell wrapping paper door to door. Mariah has to come to terms with her own past, which is actually made worse by the fact that Mariah works by day as a garbage man named Frank who, every Boxing Day has to bear witness to the veritable tons of wrapping paper thrown away, which brings him to an existential crisis of Talmudic proportions. And how does Frank deal with this, he takes it out on the evil vampires that have, up to this point, been dominating the wrapping paper, tissue and associated ribbon industry in Detroit.

But they don't even mention this once.

But other than that, it was an exceptional film! Buy this now!!!

Full disclosure - I went to College with Mark Giordano, one of the stars of the movie, and a really great stand up comic and actor in NYC. You can catch parts of his act if you google it. I watched this on a plane flight. There is a decent amount of nudity, so you have to be a little bit careful there. Other than that, the movie is hilarious. If you like movies like Caddyshack, or Theres something about Mary, or farrelly brothers comedies, you will think this is hilarious. Totally worth a watch. The only reason I didnt give it 5 stars is I didnt think anybody would believe it.
