Fortunately, this is not one of them. It is, indeed, independent, and it is, indeed, extremely low-budget.
However, it is a very honest film, and every scene is "front and center." The acting is strong throughout. The people who made this movie did a masterful job of keeping the viewer's interest in virtually every scene from start to finish.
Certainly, it is not everyone's "cup of tea." If you gravitate toward mainstream movies with traditional plots, acting, lines and action, you would be wasting your time with this.
However, if you are a devotee of well-made indies, this is definitely one to consider.
And, as an added bonus (and something I didn't realize until watching the credits run), there was an interesting cameo by Tippi Hedren (who, for those of you old enough to remember, was a big-screen movie star in her own right in the 1950s and 1960s).
The story is basically a snapshot of Jillian (Weixler) on a day that ends up having more meaning to her than she would first realize as she's been asked to fill in for a friend on a cheap ice cream truck giving out free samples after yet another night at the bar. The people she encounters include Tippi Headren as a former starlet (one that wasn't as famous as Headren was) whom Jillian finally opens up to as well as some fun vignettes with other, sometimes unruly customers.
It's not a traditional Hollywood movie and the "hipster" quality in the sarcastic humor might not be everyone's taste but I was glad to have experienced this when I did at a film festival. It's nice to just see a stripped down story sometimes.
I don't see this movie making it in the theaters.
this movie seems like a movie that would be enjoyed by the select few who actually like these type of movies.
The movie was good.
I liked the supporting characters/actors.
The main character was getting on my nerves, after a minute of listening to her talk, I had to tone her out and focus on only the other character she was talking to her.
Just one question though; Who's Mike? (name on the truck)
Low budget is easy when you do not need explosions, car wrecks, a lot of computer graphics, but just want to tell a story with "real" people interacting with each other, which is what this does. The focus is on the acting and dialog, and that was well-done. People seem somewhat polarized--a lot of voters liking it a lot and some hating it. If you don't enjoy a movie that seems somewhat realistic and is a character study/relationship movie, then you will not like it. Very slight spoiler: back to the basic plot. Jillian is so negative about herself and pretty much everyone else that it was hard not to dislike her.Read more ›

The worst movie I had ever seen. If you have absolutely nothing to do and this your only option dont watch it. If you do. Mute it and make your own plot.Published on March 9, 2014 by Raul Velandia
Jess weixler is absolutely perfect as a law school drop out with no direction in life. The scenes with her serving free samples of ice cream and attitude were hilarious! Read morePublished on March 8, 2014 by Acid burn 73
This was a surprisingly good film. Jess Weixler is absolutely superb in this movie, in fact, she is the whole movie. Independent movies have so taken over the movies for me. Read morePublished on January 22, 2014 by Sara Williams
