“Living in California I get how it is making a movie low budget or no budget. And I really wanted to like a husband and wife team starting from the bottom.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAnd since this is IMDB – there is no reason for me to do a summary.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eUnsure if the actors were paid or did this for free screen time but all the acting it totally flat, and I mean totally stiff and flat. The dialogue, script, flat, slow.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe older gentleman at the town meeting – you will love this guy because he is clearly not acting, just being casual and himself…very funny! And clearly wearing him own clothing, which was great – the others wearing ill fitting jackets and shirts.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe only one that seemed even remotely comfortable acting was the young woman in the opening screen wearing shorts and heels. I think she will be able to find more work as long as she finds similar type of character parts.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhy three stars instead of one? The cinematographer actually – gasp – filmed normally! No shaky- cam! That alone deserves 3 stars.”
