I feel like there's a good movie in here waiting to get out. There were obvious good, even great, parts. René Auberjonois' performance leaps to mind, but the script was also quite fun, and the premise itself is delightful.
However, I feel that the pacing of some scenes and the comedy they supposedly contain was really off. Whether this is due to the performances or the editing, I can't say, but I think if the film was tightened up, it would a lot funnier than it was. Also, the film felt oddly silent a lot of the time? Like maybe there should've been more music throughout or room tone or something. I'm not quite sure.
Regardless, this film is still interesting and does quite a good job with set-ups and pay-offs. It's has heart and I think it could be quite good, but as it is, it's just okay.
