Dirt Nap - Awesome, just look at the trailer. DB Sweeney at his finest acting and he even co-wrote and directed. Much more than can be expected. Friendships, relationships that hit home. I could relate and, I'm in my thirties, but I also think that fans from One Tree Hill and Moira would dig it. And to see DB Sweeney and Moira Kelly together again - can't be beat. Still watching The Cutting Edge fifteen years later, I was ecstatic to see them in the same film again. I'm in Knoxville, TN home of Regal Entertainment, I would encourage all DB & Moira fans from Cutting Edge to One Tree Hill to encourage Regal to bring this cool film. to Knoxville. I want to share it with my friends and family. And would pay to see it again. If that gives you a clue.

Great little film

3 men well into their adulthood and facing problems - ranging from an unfaithful wife to gambling debts - decide to take a road trip to the Superbowl after one of them unexpectedly wins tickets in a raffle. What results is a coming of age story with a certain twist.

Twist in that these men have already come of age - they are adults, working, tending the family, and all of life's problems. The coming of age comes in that they are men locked in their past, still reminiscing of the good old days when they were young and life was easy, fun, and there was little, if anything, to complain about. One was a star athlete, one a musician, one the class valedictorian. But then, somewhere down the line it just dissolved away and they are now working dead-end jobs, which they obviously don't like, and life is... bland. Completely unlike before.

Very well written, acted, and directed with a strong focus on the characters and often gut-bustingly funny the film presents one of life's most valuable, though not most obvious lessons: life will not live itself for you, you have to live your life.

Props to first time director D.B. Sweeney. 10/10

Not Rated as of yet, but has occasional profanity/crude dialog and some humorous drug use.

The Cadillac of buddy films

I attended the Tremblant film festival in Canada recently. A film written, directed and starring D.B. Sweeney was premiering. Walking in to the theater I expected to just walk in and sit down, but who do I see? The man himself D.B. Sweeney in the flesh. I told him that I had come from SF to see his movie and he gave me a big handshake and a smile. He's a very approachable nice guy. He took the time to chat with me for a few minutes before the show. I won't give away any of the film, but I will say this. Poignant, insightful, funny, and my girlfriend cried at the end. The Cadillac of buddy films straight from the heart and soul of a great guy. Great title too. SUPPORT THIS FILM!
