Random acts of senseless slapping
Kind of like what the F… was that for? I thought it was funny with a sort of the Kids in the Hall or Trigger Happy TV flavor… The dialogue was well written and performed well too. The editing was done very well with the cuts adding to the overall movement of the story and close ups of the dudes making faces was priceless. How many times have you wanted to just slap someone? Senseless acts of slapping “at a boy” Well done.

It's a very busy script and though some of the characters could be done away with without disrupting the stroy progress...... WHY, I thought the whole thing was "dark charming" and I would like to be crowd walking out of this film... keep writing
