      Audience Member not bad, weird to see ben savage in other things Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member There are parts of this movie that are not believable; which is hard for a film trying to have a meaning behind it. But for the most part, it wasn't half bad. The cast was pretty decent. Ben Savage was pretty good. Wasn't too sure about Aaron Ashmore's performance. This is the same for Ryan Hansen. Maybe it is because the two acted together throughout the movie. Tom Arnold was a bit strange too. I really enjoyed the scenes with Justin Mentell, Autumn Reeser and Johnny Lewis. They all had pretty good emotional parts and had good acting skills. The meaning behind the movie is that sometimes you just have to open up and enjoy everything in life. You cannot just play one part. Each character had a certain personality that they stuck with when they got into college. It wasn't until they came back to their small home town that they realized, there is more to life. Pretty decent movie. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member This film depicts a day everybody has experienced in the adolescent years. It must be a great success in the meaning that the film reminds viewers of their old days, because everybody likes remembering old days. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Cast: Tom Arnold, Ben Savage, Aaron Ashmore, Eve Brent Ashe, Hailey Bright, Shoshana Bush, Christina DeRosa, Ryan Hansen, Robin Hines, Autumn Reeser, Justin Mentell, Johnny Lewis, Luka Apt, Elena Marinelli Director: Brad Leong Summary: A quartet of college freshmen comes home for the Thanksgiving holiday and finds their suburban hometown at once familiar yet drastically changed in this wistful indie tale set in Northern California. Student filmmakers Brad Leong, Tony Vallone and a crew of undergraduates shot the movie during their summer break. My Thoughts: "I was surprised at how much this film made me laugh. I was sure it was going to be close to an 'American Pie' film, but it wasn't. Which is a good thing. Each of them come home and all, in the end, learn something new about themselves that matures them in a way. I loved the parts with the Grandmother. She was funny and very wise. The stories, all different as they go their separate ways, all mesh very well together. The movie is fun and a great summer indie feel good kinda flick." Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member sounded like it had potential, but just didn't quite get there. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Eh, average movie. Was pretty typical. I liked Autumn Reeser's role though.
