I'm not REALLY that bad, am I?
28 January 2006 | by thirty7See all my reviews

I watched this flick about 37 seconds ago and I am surprised at how well done this is considering it's an homage piece. Not overdone nor overacted. The filmmakers are obviously fans, and the dialog is very Kevin-esquire. I would recommend this film to any View Askew follower. I want to go to the Quick Stop like it's Mecca, so to see it in the film makes it the icing on the cake.

This film was a winner of the Long Island International Film Expo and I can see why. Great job and I look forward to more films from Randy and Scott; especially if they are follow-ups of the other "Jersey Trilogy" movies.
