      Audience Member Awesome 4/5. On amazon streaming. The movie is very low budget and has very amateur actors. That being said it does create very realistic and relatable scenarios. It reflects the good intentions that you try to spread out, that don’t work out. Maybe it’s my age but it does have some good messages and might just encourage you to be more open. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/09/18 Full Review roger g Being awesome in high school can continue through college and even through work, maybe continue all of your life, but, not likely. Is it just a self-realization due to the timing in one's life? If you weren't awesome, can you become awesome later? Can you make yourself awesome? Watch this film and get the answer. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I caught this on Amazon Prime tonight. I loved it. I'm heading to my reunion next week, and have been going through some of those unwanted emotions I thought were dead and gone. Of course they are not. This film effectively uses that ugly stew of emotions as the grabber, and then subtlety unwinds those feelings into a touching, nuanced story about a past that festers, about owning our shortcomings, and ultimately about loving ourselves and others. This guy is an excellent story teller. The pace, the casting, the movement from inciting problem to complex character development, the genuine care he has for all,of his characters, is all masterfully done. It is refreshing in this time of caveman news and politics to see someone create with care and sensitivity. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Liked it. Would have liked a different ending but I won't spoil that Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Really loved it. A film with genuine moments of struggle and performances that do not disappoint. A story about male relationships struggling with problems that many of us can relate to. Well-written and edited. I'm looking forward to the next release that this crew of real independent film-makers releases. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Brent Simon Shockya.com Cycles through well-worn clichs of stuck-in-a-rut, cusp-of-thirtysomething frustration, but adds nothing much new or of interest to the emotionally-adrift-guys sub-genre. Rated: C- Jun 13, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews
