Fun movie, but a little slow to start. Shows the real life drama of a young struggling technology company and what it is like to put it all on the line to pursue a dream. True life view of the clash of personality types and how much effort it takes to get along when the stress levels are high. A good film that any entrepreneur can appreciate.

The convenient thing about writing a script with no major events or conflicts is that you can just role credits when you're done rather than trying to tie up loose ends or create any type of resolution.
I am amazed when I see these movies with good actors that have no purpose, no meaning, and no humor. These actors are turning down other scripts to do films like this! There must be something wrong with them or they have gambling debts and the mafia was behind the production of this tripe.

A thoroughly engaging human saga
Midwest Book Review | Oregon, WI USA | 08/14/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A Sundance Dramatic Grand Jury Prize nominee, Pretty Bird is an eyebrow-raising adventure of the lengths to which ordinary Americans may go to pursue their extraordinary dreams. When three unusual inventors - a charming entrepreneur, a compassionate mattress store proprietor, and a rocket scientist with a bleak worldview - team up to create a rocket belt company, the put everything they have on the line in hope of finding success. Pretty Bird blends skewed comedy, genuine warmth, and the drive to see the results of one's labor made real into a thoroughly engaging human saga. Highly recommended. 98 minutes, widescreen, rated R for language and a scene of sexuality."
