I wrote: "it was a nice little movie. had some funny parts."
I also wrote: "i guess it was sort of plain every so often, but i liked seeing the message of creativity and the town getting together. it was fun knowing the various movie references like Driving Miss Daisy (1989) and 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968).

Overall, the movie concept was good, but the movie was lacking in various areas. One word that keeps coming to mind is coherence. The movie sort of springs characters and emotions on us too quickly. Though as I said above, I enjoyed the characters' movie making fun. Especially Rush Hour 2 (2001) and The Lion King (1994).
