Funny, Sad, & Depressing

As a person who eats healthy vegetarian foods, I was immediately drawn into the story about a below-average guy who sells vegetarian foods from a hot dog cart in a park. The humor in this movie isn't always obvious because of Paul Gordon's deadpan acting, which is top notch and sometimes infuriating because you want to reach into the television and shake the talking rock that he is. Don't get me started on his lack of skills when it comes to talking to the opposite sex. The script complemented Gordon's acting because of the excessive use of "cool", "yeah", and a few "uh's". Honestly, the writer must've consulted a slacker dictionary to create the dialog. But that's not a negative at all. It worked in this film and added to its charm. As an aside, that "Eggless Egg Sandwich" looked really good.

Nice effort !!

I saw the movie before two days in the festival of Thessaloniki. It has good performances , good actors. The plot was quick so during the film you will not get bored at all.The plot has some meanings also. You don't get use to watch movies with organic foods.In the beginning of the movie the first 10-15 minutes are a little confusing(not many action on the story) but later just getting better minute after minute. To tell the truth i was not expecting this movie to be good.. I think that Paul Gordon's and Liz Fisher's performances especially were very promised . The movie is a comedy and i can tell that it's a good one. I think that you cant get any better from a low budget movie!

Nice indie charmer

Terrific charming indie about a soft spoken but idealistic poet who wants to live green and start a healthy food cart business. I'm surprised this didn't have more press or reviews, but I was drawn to the title and the premise as a fan of indie flicks, a poet, almost vegetarian and dreamer who doesn't want to be, as the main character said, like "most people that hate their jobs". The tension is present from the opening scene: Will he be able to sustain his passion amidst hot dog eaters, doubters, debt, and unscrupulous employees? Director Paul Gordon is mesmerizing as his relatable protagonist Bill nods, mutters, and wraps eggless egg salad sandwiches his way through the business and dating world, earning sympathy and causing the viewer to root for him to find his voice, not just clear his throat. Johnny Mars stands out as the supportive but fallible sidekick who markets creatively, and Chris Doubek is convincing as Curtis, the random moocher whom offers just the right amount of encouragement for Bill to tolerate him and ends up being a guardian angel. Bill's romantic connection to a patient but frustrated Agnes, played well by Liz Fisher, seems just as promising but tenuous as his chances for success. Ultimately, the movie's message is uplifting and falls somewhere in the delicate balance of standing up for yourself and standing up for your dreams, which are not always in sync. As Curis in the movie said, ..."Just because you aren't writing doesn't mean you're not a poet...how you live your life is a work of art. This food is your art." Overall, a unique and enjoyable film with heart warming and laugh out loud moments. Highly recommended.
