Movie Reviews

Witty, clever and revealing
James Ferguson | Vilnius, Lithuania | 10/21/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Good independent spirit. This movie caught me by surprise. An affecting love story with some wonderful character roles spark this movie. Megan Edwards is charming as Sara, the buttoned-down grade school teacher, as she reveals her insecurities and vulnerabilities. Virgil Mignanelli is compelling as the biker and tattoo artist that unravels Sara's tightly wrapped view of the world. Both maintained their sensibilities, while yielding to the other in the most unexpected ways. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie."
Charming: big biker loves up-tight schoolteacher in Boise
Christoph Lock | Los Angeles | 09/28/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I actually stumbled on this little gem when it was playing in theaters here and couldn't say enough for friends to see it; now I can buy it and show them what they missed! I have never been in a movie where the audience consistantly laughed throughout the ENTIRE movie (well, there was "Anchorman"...). It's an odd little masterpiece: the leading man is an overweight biker, the leading woman is stunning (but not yet famous in other films) somewhat unsure school teacher, a typical setting is a sushi bar in downtown Boise, Idaho -- and it charms and gets you laughing 'til you don't want it to end. It's also a gentle film: you can show your parents this and they'll be laughing too, even though it's about tattoos and sex and rebellion. This is a world where the "Extra" who's rowing past in boat says "hi"; and the leads' friends keep popping up and had the theater roaring. Quirky, surprising fun.

I'm glad I can put it on my shelf now: a sweeet little romantic comedy that's smart in its humor -- that nobody can say "I've seen that already."

You'll be loaning it to frineds.

Charming and memorable

"I've actually watched, laughed at and been surprised by this movie twice! (The second time I wanted to share it with my grown daughter.) As someone approaching 60, tattoos and piercings have been a big mystery to me. The fascination becomes clear in this unexpected love story. The film has a very personal feeling. You want to be friends with the characters - spend some time with them. And rather than a Hollywood ending, this movie has the right ending. I'm recommending "Tattoo" to all my friends who are interested in film."
Great Movie, Really Funny
R. Bergin | 07/23/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A great romantic comedy that has all the right ingredients. It's got great performances, a fantastic script and decent direction for a first-time filmmaker. I really enjoyed some of the portrayals and how much this film stands up to some of the garbage being cranked out by the hollywood machine.

Do yourself a favor and watch this movie, you won't regret it."
