Storyline

Coming home on the train the morning after graduation, Jim Swanson meets Mary - the girl he liked from university. He invites her back to his place where they are shocked to find somebody already in the house. The intruder runs off and Jim pursues him in his dad's car. He finds him and runs him over - only then does he discover that the intruder is Jeff, his slacker best friend from university. Throughout the rest of the morning they wait for a taxi to take Jeff to the hospital and on the way they talk about university, girls and movies until they finally get to the root of the problems that have plagued their friendship for years. Written by Eric Bay-Andersen

Great! considering there was probably no money involved.
25 March 2009 | by prozac_nation_1989See all my reviews

I saw this film here on IMDb two days ago and i honestly think that considering that there was no money involved it was brilliant. If there was a budget then i would completely retract that statement. If there was any bad things about it at all it was the camera-work was a bit shaky, maybe you guys should've got something stable to put it on and i thought SOME of the dialogue was kinda amateurish and cheesy, like i mean considering its set in Britain there seems to be way too much copying of "clerks"- esquire dialogue and its as if its trying too hard in places. I thought the beginning was only KIND OF boring up until the Jeff character arrives (by the way that Joshua David Hall guy is he like a real actor? because his performance was what kept it going in a way) i thought the way the one take shots was done was fantastic, so well done to Ben Arnold as he is credited, it was wonderful the way he is never seen in the movie with the amount of one takes, apart from the shakiness at the beginning which was maybe unavoidable his camera-work is great for a debut. All in all well done to Eric bay Andersen (who also acts very naturally) for a great first effort, if this is these guys FIRST then i hope to see more from them. It seems to be a good trio for filmaking.
