Captain Hagen’s Bed & Breakfast

My wife and I watch movies.  Ok, a lot of movies.  We’ve kind of developed a pattern where the friday night film will be something that is a little riskier – maybe an indie with only a few reviews, maybe something that might be high-risk and high-reward.  Either way, we tend to take more chance on friday night.

I could only find one review for this film and it positive so we gave it a look.  I loved it.  It had all the trappings of so many indie films – it was quirky, rough around the edges and probably involved some questionable casting (although I came around on some of the characters by the end).  Indie films can get away with something that Hollywood films cannot – they can kind of meander through the story without necessarily spelling out where they are going for the viewer.

The film was also unique in that it spent a fair amount of time addressing the difficulties that men face in the dating world.  In this regard it reminded me a lot of High Fidelity, although in this film they showed a brotherhood of men in the common struggle.  This is probably what endeared the film to me the most.
