On the first day of school in Ms. Locklear's first grade class, Rhett & Link were caught writing profanity on their desks. As they were forced to stay inside during recess coloring pictures of unicorns, the two boys began a friendship that has lasted for over 20 years.
In the summer of 2006, the internet comedy duo decided to document their attempt to reconnect with Ms. Locklear. They would avoid modern forms of communication. Instead of Googling Ms. Locklear, they would rely solely on face-to-face contact with people.
Little did they know that these parameters would lead them into the very center of an obscure tribe of Native Americans, the Lumbee of North Carolina, and transform what was intended to be a docu-experiment into an hour-long film rich with humor and heart. Even more serendipitously, Rhett & Link arrive on the scene at the very climax of the tribe's century-long political struggle for identity. A story of a search for a teacher quickly becomes the story of a people's search for significance and legacy.
During their quest, Rhett & Link follow a trail replete with unforgettable characters and unlikely scenarios. In a day of mobile devices that allow for a multitude of superficial connections with other 'users,' the truly captivating individuals in this film serve as a reminder that people have more to say than an email or text message can communicate.

I really liked that they were objective, and didn't have an overly emotional cause, like so many documentaries. Rhett and Link are master storytellers, and they are great at getting regular people to tell a compelling story.
The subject material is really interesting, too. Rhett and Link decide to find their grade school teacher, Ms. Locklear by using just word of mouth, and decide to interview everyone along the way. Most of the interviews take place on a reservation where most people have the last name of Locklear, and who haven't heard of the titular teacher. I really loved this documentary.
+Finally, an objective documentary!
+Great interviews with regular people
+A great slice of Americana
+Such a fun show
+Not too long. Just long enough that it left me wanting more
-Doesn't have much of Rhett and Link singing, just one song
My daughter and I recently became "Mythical Beasts" (fans of R&L) and had the pleasure to meet them in LA. We wish them continued success!
