As a parent I know that it is hard to sometimes find a movie that is family friendly enough for the whole family and entertaining enough to keep me awake during it. When I got to watch a screener of the new film I'll Believe You recently I was happy to find a nice mix of both. Then when I got a call last week asking me if I'd help get the word out about the film how could I say no to them becoming a client? [youtube]http://youtube.com/watch?v=0cBjWK0Kfew[/youtube]
What I liked about the film is the underlying message of believing in something crazy. That is a pretty good motto in my book and it is hard to argue with. I also liked that I could watch it with Dylan and we'd both laugh at it out loud. This movie isn't going to win any Oscars, but it is entertaining. At least I thought so.
It is also full of familiar faces including Patrick Warburton, Fred Willard, Mo Rocca, Thomas Gibson and Ed Helms. A really great ensemble cast. Oh, and I can't forget Chris Elliott who I've never been a huge fan of, but his scene with the raw chicken and the alligators completely cracked me up.
For those of you that are fans of The Office and thus Ed Helms, check out this outtake reel of the "nessie" scene from the film. It's better once you've seen the whole thing, but I still found it to be a good time.
The film opens in limited release on November 9, 2007 and you can find out more on the I'll Believe You website.
