Short on budget, but long on laughs, this no-budget indie comedy follows a pretentious film student named Dens (writer-director-actor Tony Leahy) who returns to his podunk Washington hometown to shoot a documentary on his cousin Bob's annual "kick-ass bash." Dens is determined to do a mean-spirited exposé of his trailer trash relations, but is soon wallowing in cheap beer and self-pity as his white trash past comes back to haunt him. Cynthia Geary ("Northern Exposure") is about the only name in the cast and the whole thing is a decidedly low-tech affair. Still, the film coasts for quit a while on observational wit and good-natured redneck ribbing.
