Review-lettes "Moon Point"

Moon Point

Starring Nick McKinlay, Paula Brancati and Kyle Mac

Directed by Sean Cisterna

Opens: Feb. 3

Genre: Comedy

Rating: 2.5 /5

A stay-at-home son embarks on a road trip to find his childhood flame now an actress shooting scenes for Blood Lust a couple towns over.  He’s in a wagon tied to his best friend’s wheelchair; their slow Homeboy Odyssey features gunfire, karaoke, a lifesaving 40th birthday party, a creepy ice cream vendor and Art Hindle inviting them to a kegger.  It’s sweet and funny but ballsy enough to call out Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Pogues and The Passion of the Christ and a plot to best a mean cousin.
