***MOMC REVIEW***

Low-key and infectiously clever, this teenaged comedy not only marks the arrival of a brilliant comedy maestro, but also represents one of the most impressive first films I've ever seen on TMO. Polished production matched with clever writing, absurd situational humor, and some of the funniest musical montages around make this a delight from start to finish. Somehow, the formula worked exceedingly well here, falling into the usual trappings of this sort of comedy but striking that funny bone nonetheless with enough teenage hormones and over-the-top antics to keep me salivating for me. Although the logic collapses under the weight of the admittedly light plot, I honestly found myself enthralled through and through.

Did I mention the movie was brilliantly directed? It was. I'm still baffled how you were able to infuse so much quality into your first movie.

Excellent work. I look forward to what you bring us in the future.

Teen comedy heaven!

So slickly and professionally done too.

Even though the story didn't hold up to any kind of scrutiny (if they could have driven that fast, they could have delivered the intended present themselves and had blonde-haired guy intercept his book at the same time), it was all loads of fun. Very good overlays and music - and good characterisation too (that means nicely acted really).

Yes, all the VOs were free from the usual shenanigans of too loud or too quiet or too poppy. So very good work there.

The editing was always slick and kept the story moving forward, and the overall pace of the story was near perfect.

A very good job here.

Let me just say that you are a very talented movie maker, you have a hell of a lot of potential. OVerlay work was amazing , it was just outstanding! Storyline was very well done. One thing I can complain about is the length :ermm: I think this should be a directors cut ;)

Anyways great job :)

Wow, where do I start off?? .. well I would have to say this is a 1st Class Directing from a Newcomer with so much promise!! Dude I loved this film from the beginning to the end. Excellent use of Free-Cam for instance when he was going down the lift to the terrific sound editting cuts to silence when the Post Man delivered his one-liner. All aspects like these not only raised the quality of this film but the Highly refreshing plot and dialogue were very entertaining to watch and listen to. I felt you did a great job with the VA's aswell, incorporating alot of characters to just yourself. Your female counterpart did well as well with her VO's. This film clearly had alot of time and effort put into it and I was pleasantly suprised to find a newcomer who is willing to do this. I can tell straight away that with a few more films you will be talk of the forums ^_^ Definetly a Debut that is actually a Breakthrough Production on all counts. Choice of music was well done aswell as I also noticed a track that will be featuring in my upcoming movie. This movie had a "Dumb & Dumber" , "Planes, Trains & Automobile" feel to it which is great. The Steve Martin/John Candy style relationship the buddies had was great and you really have set a foundation for these characters to be expanded and built upon. This film can easily have a few sequels as there are numerous adventures these two friends could have!

Fantastic, no no Nuketastic!!! Keep up the Excellent Work and Don't ever hesitate to PM me your next film!

Nuke Well In All The Atoms In The Universe!!!!!

A sweet little teen comedy the likes of which used to fill up the uhf airwaves. Nice musical montages and some suprisingly effective overlay work. It took a while to work its charm but by the end I was just that..charmed. Maybe it was the fun light and fluffy Hughes-esque goodness...or maybe it was the american pie-esque girl-on-girl action that drew me in. Either way you win.

You are either a pro that finally decided to come to his senses and make fantastic movies online. Though I think you are one of the best movie makers online, there was many lighting errors, but those errors are easily drowned out by the great scenes, vo's, and free-cam in this master movie. I am definately bookmarking this.

Also, check out my studio and movies!

Good Luck!

I thought it was a pretty average movie. There were a few editing problems, the lack of emotion really got to me, and I didn't even laugh once. But then again, it takes a lot to make me laugh. Other than that, the movie had great pace, great characters, and great music. I'd say you did an OK job.

Wow an astounding accpomlishment for a first timer! This movie takes a classic plot and gives it a modern twist. I found the music fit perfectly, and would only suggest that you edit it in Audacity so that it dosent end so abrubtly. There were some inconsistencies with the lighting, but other than that the directing was superb.

that was excellent dude!
there were some brilliant lines, backed up by an awesome comic plot, with a few extra giggles thrown in. This is THE best first film i have seen, and one of the best overall films. I'm not surprised that this was a hot pick, it deserves it. I bet its won a few competitions, too, but i dont know about that.
Wow, i'm definately bookmarking this!
The music was good too, i think i'm gonna look them up.
I have lots more to say about that, but i bet you wont even read it, so i'm not going to bother saying it. But you will probably hear from me again in a review of one of your other movies :P

Very funny and entertaining. The crisp editing made for a quick pace and there were a lot of professional touches.

MOMC Review:

This was a very enjoyable movie. Great use of overlays, VOs that were really quite good (Steve was the only one I didn't care much for), clever use of the custom "girl" costume (scarey!), the great music... and, of course, the brilliant MONTAGE!

The story was a bit corny, but nonetheless, very entertaining. And each character had a "personality", which is sometimes difficult to pull off in a TMO movie... but you did it here effortlessly.

Another thing that stood out was the apparent professional and polished "feel" to this movie. Very impressive to pull that off on TMO.

Great work!

Score: 4.7

*** MOMC REVIEW ***

A somewhat basic but delightful romantic comedy. The story here is somewhat reminiscent of Road Trip, though with a much cleaner comedy style. While there is a certain aura of generic-ness, and a few things I found slightly tacky, overall this is very well put-together and quite cute!

I will be giving a score out of 100 initially, which will be translated into the MoMc rating out of 5.0 using the same scale as for my review thread.

Overall enjoyment: 30/35. A cute, fun little film! The final "punchline" (really the entire last scene) definitely gave me a good laugh. A good portion of the setup, however, was perhaps a little on the slow side.

Editing: 26/30. Visually, this is all very good. All the points taken off here had to do with some issues I had with scene selection and flow, particularly during the musical montage. It felt a little messy in places. Much of the rest of the movie flowed very well. Music was well-chosen and sets the mood of the film very well. Voice-overs all came through clearly, and worked around the default sounds nicely.

Production Value: 15/15. Great work all around here! This is a film that can't really be called "spectacular" in this regard, but it gets full marks for making good use of the Starmaker, costumes, props, set dressing, and overlays. The custom opening title and credits sequences were very well done, and suited this genre perfectly. Good work also with some of the animated overlays during the film itself.

Characters: 9/10. Very likeable and believable characters, though perhaps a touch on the basic side.

Dialog: 8/10. Some pretty decent dialog, but also quite basic. The acknowledgement of the montage felt kind of tacky to me, since the rest of the movie didn't do anything like that.

Total: 88/100.

4 stars. But inches away from the 5!

My suggestions: Suggestions here are a bit tough for me, since I think you essentially accomplished what you wanted with this film. For the most part, my minor issues were related to the somewhat basic, easy nature of the story - and that's not really something I can give any particular advice about.
There were moments where I thought the visual editing was a touch messy, but it wasn't anything major. I didn't quite get the whole gist of what was going on during the montage, for example�?� I was quite surprised when the next thing we saw was them in jail, and it took the next scene after that for me to realize why.

MoMc Rating: 4.3

What a terrific, self-assured directoral debut - the filmmaker is clearly somebody who knows movies, knows what works, and has been able to make it work in a TMO flick.

Though not laugh-out-loud funny, the film keeps a smile on your face from beginning to end as the plot unfolds - and the use of musical montage is absolutely brilliant - truly Hollywood-like.

With a career that starts off with this kind of bang, I can't wait to see what else Berkley has in store for us down the road.

I don't have time write a long review, but her goes:

That was VERY well done, you get to escape the ties of painful examination on technical issues, and the aid of awesome music and a well thought out script with deep layers is the equation for a great comedy. This is the best comedy I've seen since Manny Jones :D

---The Ultimate Judge---

Definatly an interesting film. Almost every aspect of this film was good. I enjoyed the music, use of mods and overlays, even the voice acting was not that bad. But the humor? There wasn't enough. I felt that the only humor of the entire film shined during the music scenes. The rest of it was a little flat.

Overall, an enjoyable film; though, I believe it could use improvement especially if you plan on a sequal.

I judge this film "Innocent."

NEXT!!!

It was a pretty good movie with an original plot and funny storyline. The VO's could have been improved if more emotion was put into the acting and the ending was a little strange but overall, with great music, this well worth the watch.

Now this was interesting, I will confess I wasn't expecting too much from this moie, maybe to just have a few quick laughs and maybe get a bit bored around the 6 minute mark, seeing that you are a relativelly new director as well didn't exactlly get my hopes up a great deal. However, to say I was pleasantlly suprised would be a complete understatement. As this movie was in actual fact trully brilliant, its a great laugh full of witty characters, a great script and also a brilliant scenario. The movie does have moments that are a tad cliched, but the movie more than makes up for it with a sense of fun and comedic timing that many comedys on this website really do lack. And what a;so impressed me a lot is the fact that the length of this movie never affected me once. There are many movies that go over the ten minute mark and just feel oddly stretched out, especially so when it comes to comedies. However this movie never once actually bored me, in fact I was having a ball of a time by the end of the film and was actually saddened to see it end This movie does actually have the potential to become a feature length film if I'm honest, I am sure this idea as been done before in a real movie, but with the great characters and some brillian comedy sequences this could be a success story. Now then for my minor moan, my only thing I can say that I was slightlly distratced by was the acting, don't get me wrong the acting was fine for a large majority of the time, but in the beggining the acting seemed, well unfortunatelly lifeless. Thankfully as the movie progressed so did the acting level, but in the beggining the acting didn't do the script justice whatsoever.

This movies brilliance also comes through the great little comedy moments in there. Any montage sequence was brilliant, the music to the montage worked a treat and the fact the montages actually contained some brilliantlly funny, and by that I mean laugh out loud funny, moments. The scene with the police was really funny, but was overshadowed brilliantlly by the manic ending involving dressing up like a woman, that bit was very well done and had me in stitches throughout. Added to that that the storyline never took second place to the funniness of the movie made this a surefire five star rating. Impeccable comedic timing and a great plot make this a movie to remember. Can't wait to see more work from you and you have earned a bookmark from my studio.

I'll give you a little slack. It was funny and the premise was indeed hilarious. Production values were great, direction great, but the acting at times seemed a bit held back. I felt like the characters were a little bland (even comedies have mildly fleshed out characters/stereotypes) and the comic timing was off just enough for it not to be laugh out loud funny, but it still was a great job.

Posted on February 15, 2007
- sisch

Wohoo! I have discovered a big hit! :)

What a wonderful comedy, fun - action - love - great music (that montage scene was the best I have seen in a long while!), fine editing and innovative use of freecam and props, not to speak of the intro overlays, which had me laughing before the movie really started! The overlay work throughout the whole movie was fantastic, as were the voiceovers - perfectly clear and understandable!

Of course I agree with JazzX, the part where his friend and
the girl followed him by car was not really logic - but who wants to think about that when watching such an entertaining movie?

I said it before and I say it again: for me, the genre comedy is the most difficult one - it´s so hard to make a really funny movie!

I will most surely be watching your studio page for your next movie...
until then, here is your well deserved S-S-F gold!

- crAZRick

outstanding! the sets, the characters, the VOs, the mods and overlays, everything just came together beautifully in this piece of comedy magic!

one small detail I think could have really pushed this over the top:

always fade out in a montage...
when you fade out, it seems like even more time passes in a montage...
(I learned that from watching TEAM AMERICA: WORLD POLICE! ;) )
every movie needs a montage, and this one had TWO!

but seriously... forget seriously, this was comic gold!!

Interesting premise, and a very good quality production indeed! To be truthful, I wasn�??t much into the basic romance aspect of the movie, but does it matter? Not at all, as the plot was fun enough to keep me going. The production was very distinctive, and the custom content was well made. Custom music was also appropriate. Very nice montage, by the way�?� hehe

Your focus on the storyline was very strong and kept the movie moving along nicely. Steve can be quite annoying, in an Owen Wilson kind of way. He even looked like him.

This being one of your first movies, this is really impressive! I look forward to hearing from you again. ;)

Dr. Darwin Says

It Got Off To A Slow Start, The VOs Seemed To Have No Emotion And The Comedy Seemed Somewhat Absent In The First Part, But As Soon As The First Montage Had Arrived Things Really Started To Heat Up, I Loved That Montage, It Was Well Put Together And I Liked It Alot, Great Job On That, And The Second One Too. I'm A Bit Harsh When It Comes To Comedy Because Its My Specialty, So I Apologize If I Was Too Hard On Your Movie, But I Think It Fits In As A 4 Star Flick!
FINAL VERDICT -
Dr. Darwin Let Out A Triumphant Monkey Screech For This Movie!

For your first serious movie, this isn't so bad! In fact its genius!

Freecam was good, nothing too special, but it was there. I like freecam it really brings out a movie. It also lets a viewer know this movie was made by someone who thought it out. Thats how I felt.

Another thing that lets the viewer know the movie was thought out is good set dressing. Which there was some, so I can't mark you down for that. Also the storyline was oddly humorous in its own unique way. Nice job!

5.0 stars

It's a nice movie with a good idea but it lacks a bit rythm at the beginning.

well I didn't find it that funny, except for near the end, but it was cute. I thought you did a great job with this movie. I especially liked the backdrops and overlays. The music you chose was excellent for this genre...kinda like one of those teen comedy movies from the 80's.
my ratings:
music: 5 stars
script: 5 stars
editing: 5 stars
drops/lays: 5 stars
genre effectiveness: 4 stars
overall: 4.8 stars

Wow that was hillarious.

The scene choices were top notch and everyone loves agood montage.

The music and dialogue choices were very well picked. The end was a little confusing but other than that I think this went great from the beginning to end.

I'm a little too tired at the moment to write a review, but a movie of this quality I'm forcing myself to write one. That film was seriously a whole load of fun to watch, I didn't have to strain my ears to hear the well-acted voices, the use of music was excellent, the use of overlays was fantastic, the scenes fit together nicely and the plot was truly something else.
Overall, it was a very fun film and was a treat to watch. I really can't believe that this is your first film as well, this film quite simply ranks in the top 10 best movies I've ever seen on TMO, and I've seen quite a few.
Keep up the good work, your talent certainly shows!
Great job!

Teen comedy heaven!

So slickly and professionally done too.

Even though the story didn't hold up to any kind of scrutiny (if they could have driven that fast, they could have delivered the intended present themselves and had blonde-haired guy intercept his book at the same time), it was all loads of fun. Very good overlays and music - and good characterisation too (that means nicely acted really).

Yes, all the VOs were free from the usual shenanigans of too loud or too quiet or too poppy. So very good work there.

The editing was always slick and kept the story moving forward, and the overall pace of the story was near perfect.

A very good job here.

Fantastic work - a really well thought out script, well crafted into a great film. Everything was excellent, from the quality VOs and the scene selection, throughh to the great ending. Well done.

Just Out - the trailer to our new series, Edwardians in Space, the film that has risen to No.8 in the Sci-Fi chart just 24 hours after release.

Let me just say that you are a very talented movie maker, you have a hell of a lot of potential. OVerlay work was amazing , it was just outstanding! Storyline was very well done. One thing I can complain about is the length :ermm: I think this should be a directors cut ;)

Anyways great job :)

I liked it, 'twas fun to watch.

A few minor issues with the movie, like the backdrop used for the Citystreet that didn't really match up and gave a slightly mismatched look.
And the question why that Postage Transporter looked like it belongs to a Soft Drink company? :)
It had moments I where I though the editing could have been tighter, shaving off a min. or two.

But essentially it was an exceptional work.
I especially loved that intro.

And I like the title, tried to think of something but I got the catch phrase 'Accidental' stuck in my head and whenever I tried to think of a title, I thought of 'The accidental tourist'. :p

What can I say? Well shot, well edited, great story & continuity, great VO's. Just loved it!

Wow, where do I start off?? .. well I would have to say this is a 1st Class Directing from a Newcomer with so much promise!! Dude I loved this film from the beginning to the end. Excellent use of Free-Cam for instance when he was going down the lift to the terrific sound editting cuts to silence when the Post Man delivered his one-liner. All aspects like these not only raised the quality of this film but the Highly refreshing plot and dialogue were very entertaining to watch and listen to. I felt you did a great job with the VA's aswell, incorporating alot of characters to just yourself. Your female counterpart did well as well with her VO's. This film clearly had alot of time and effort put into it and I was pleasantly suprised to find a newcomer who is willing to do this. I can tell straight away that with a few more films you will be talk of the forums ^_^ Definetly a Debut that is actually a Breakthrough Production on all counts. Choice of music was well done aswell as I also noticed a track that will be featuring in my upcoming movie. This movie had a "Dumb & Dumber" , "Planes, Trains & Automobile" feel to it which is great. The Steve Martin/John Candy style relationship the buddies had was great and you really have set a foundation for these characters to be expanded and built upon. This film can easily have a few sequels as there are numerous adventures these two friends could have!

Fantastic, no no Nuketastic!!! Keep up the Excellent Work and Don't ever hesitate to PM me your next film!

Nuke Well In All The Atoms In The Universe!!!!!

There were many things I liked about this movie. Great use of Backdrops, Entertaining Montages. Very well put together. You show great Tallent for Movie makeing.

But The movie itself, I didn't like it as a whole. The only time I laughed was the "who's Birthday is this?" line at the end.

A nice lighthearted story.
Not lol funny but it had a general element of fun about it.I've seen a real movie or two with a similar theme,and even a tv show or two,but what really stands out in this is your use of backdrops and overlays.Some nice touches,especially the "present grab" and other custom stuff.
What saves you though is the end,since I can never get tired of girl-on-girl action lol:-)
