funny movie
25 May 2009 | by spkrookSee all my reviews

Great movie, hilarious,especially if you are an Anglophile. The actors do great characterizations. The scenes are well shot, especially those depicting California. The movie was well accepted by the Morris dance and folk-dance community at the Seattle Folklife festival and the Seattle International Film Festival. We need to see more Morris dancing like that done by the OCM. If you enjoy folk dance you must see this film. If you enjoy England you must see this film. If you enjoy laughing you must see this film.This film is a mocumentery in the tradition of This Is SpinalTap, and A Mighty Wind. This is all filler, the movie was shot in the wettest summer in england, on a low budget. The film makers did wonders in poor conditions and with little to work with.
