Being a big Pump Up the Volume fan, I knew I wanted to see this so I didn't read too much about it. It ended up being kind of like a... hmm. I definite know there are movies very similar to this but none of them are coming to mind. You know... movies where a couple of deadbeats are driving around town trying to do something and several groups of interesting and/or funny people interfere along with several coincidences that make the whole thing wrap into itself? It's one of those movies.
It's funny, kind of odd, pretty original. I liked it a lot.
Also of note was the short that played before it: The Ecstasy Note. I've written about it before but was glad to hear it get some response and didn't mind sitting through it a second time, waiting for the big comic beats. I just wish it was ten minutes shorter and that much tighter, but I still like how big the idea goes (this was the one about a guy who sticks a fork in his hand and bangs it with a knife to make all those who can hear it writhe in undescribable pleasure). I love it when the doctor looks at the x-ray and says "well, looks like you've got a fork in your hand." gee, thanks.
