I didn't really know anything about this movie or how Tim League hosted the filmmakers while they were here or how Alamo regulars helped out with it or anything like that. So when I learned all that right before the lights went down I thought i was in for a pretty bad movie that was overcompensated due to friendships. I'm happy to say that that wasn't the case. This would be a pretty good movie even if it weren't shot in austin.
But since it is, I think it's pretty funny how... it's like the most Austin movie ever. They cover like 16 locations all around the city representing the hippest or coolest places in town. It's kind of like when LA filmmakers go to a location city like New Orleans and shoot scenes at every major landmark just to get their money's worth. So they have scenes at an Alamo Drafthouse, Toy Joy, Austin Diner, Broken Spoke, Beauty Bar, everywhere... it's pretty crazy and seems like overkill to me but that's just because I live here. I bet this is how all Los Angelenos feel about every movie.
Anyway, Noah Taylor is great in this movie. The girl is just ok I think but the main guy plays a douche pretty well and Noah Taylor is great. Solid movie.
