Mr. Gump,

The linked review is what sucked me in. Chad Carpenter's bizarre sense of humor is everywhere: "flannel capital of the world", new Park Ranger "Zack del Pollo", the mayor of the town is a chicken (satire on Talkeetna, where "Mayor Stubbs", a for real cat holds court over a non-existent jurisdiction--I have pet that mayor--what a write home experience!).

At the end of the day, this film is mute testimony to the fact that you can throw all the money in the world at some weak plot, and throw in some A-list actors, and still have a bomb. On the flip side, in the world of comedy/satire, the right intellect, armed with a smartphone shooting video could produce something pretty darn entertaining. I had read somewhere that this cost around $50,000 to make, but the review says more like $100,000. Having met Chad, I'm betting that if this venture at least breaks even, Chad will be a happy camper.
