Movie Reviews

The wait is over!
Rory Szwed | Saranac Lake, NY | 07/17/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ask anyone who has had the opportunity to see this film as it meandered its way through the indie festivals, and they will tell you that this hilarious little gem has kept many an audience in stitches and should have found distribution a long time ago. Not only is the material fresh and off-the-cuff with improvisation-o-plenty, but the story is one that is easy to relate too while at the same time being so absurdly over-the-top that one cannot help but let out a snicker at how paintball gets the full mockumentary treatment, though in a unique style differentiated from those of the "Guest" lineage (Spinal Tap, Mighty Wind,Best In Show, etc...). If you are a fan of improv then you will appreciate the pedigree of this cast, many of which have gone through the Upright Citizens Brigade Comedy Troupe, and have also made appearances on Comedy Central, SNL, and MAD TV. The talent is there, and these folks use it to their fullest - so much so that you focus on the characters, and not the shoe-string budget that put this film into the ranks of an instant cult favorite."
Clearly Not For Randy Given

"If you have trouble discerning a mockumentary from a documentary then you should by all means stay away from this movie. . . I'm looking at you Randy Givens, Mr. I-gave-this-movie-1-star-because-I-thought-it-was-real. But if your brain is working above the level of a newborn then by all means check out this hilarious mockumentary. If you're a fan of The Daily Show, The Upright Citizens Brigade or Human Giant, then this is a must-see treat for you. Rob Riggle will have you in stitches."

"Kind of funny, a little dry, some paintballers may not like it, but I thought it was funny."
Booyaka, booyaka, I bring the paint to ya.

"This is laugh-out-loud-till-it-hurts type funny. That being said, it's not for everybody. The guy who said it was "crude" clearly doesn't get it, which I can see; some people not getting the humor. I've watched this movie with people who (like myself) laughed non-stop, from start to finish. I've also watched it with people who didn't register more than a chuckle the entire movie (I kept looking over and saying, "That doesn't make you laugh? You don't find that funny?? Really???")

Lurking beneath the apparent "crudeness" lies some very intelligent, biting humor. Fans of the TV show "The Office" will find a lot to like here. It's really more clever than it is crude. You'll need to watch this movie 3 or 4 times to catch every joke and funny line, which is the true sign of a transcendent comedy. When you consider that 95% of the jokes are improv, that makes it even more impressive. We need more movies like this and fewer (none?) "______ Movie" movies."
