    Synopsis


    I'm Reed Fish
    Reed Fish (Jay Baruchel of Million Dollar Baby and Undeclared) seems to be leading the life he's supposed to. He's followed in the footsteps of his late father, doing an early-morning radio show with the town's mayor, Maureen (Katey Sagal), through which the eccentric locals of Mud Meadows voice their complaints and have them addressed. He produces the show with his old high school buddy, Frank (Victor Rasuk), and he's engaged to be married to another high school chum, the gorgeous Kate Peterson (Alexis Bledel), whose dad (Blake Clark) seems to own every business in town. But Reed's plans are upended when his high school sweetheart, Jill (Schuyler Fisk), comes back to town. She's supposed to be away at law school, but she confides to Reed that she quit school years ago, and has been working as a waitress while she fruitlessly pursues a career in music. Reed encourages her to play on Open Mike Night at the local bar. He inspires her to find her voice, which leads to some complications in his relationship with Kate, forcing Reed to reexamine every aspect of his safe, secure life. I'm Reed Fish also features performances by DJ Qualls, Chris Parnell, and Shiri Appleby. The comedy marks the feature debut of director Zackary Adler, and had its world premiere at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival. ~ Josh Ralske, Rovi

      Some people get a little confused by this movie because its a "film within a film" as they say about a guy making a movie about his own life but if you get past that minor detail you'll like it. Personally I would have liked it better emotionally if it hadn't had that element because I found it a bit disjointing-sort of broke the 4th wall in my opinion. I saw this movie originally because I like Alexis Bledel and Schuyler Fisk, so this movie was what I like to call doubling my pleasure. Most of you probably know and love Alexis Bledel from her days as Rory Gilmore on Gilmore Girls. Schuyler Fisk is less well known to the masses, but equally amazing and she totally steals the movie not only with her adorable looks and charm but also with her awesome abilities as a singer-songwriter. In fact, her songs, though there are only a couple of them make the movie in my opinion. I already had this on dvd but wanted to get it on Blu Ray for a hopefully improved picture quality because since its an indie film, the production wasn't A+. The good news is that the picture quality on the Blu Ray is definitely noticeably bettter but I will warn you that, probably since this is an older indie film, it was made as an on demand BD-R title which means its on a burned disk, not a traditional factory pressed disk so be aware of that when you buy it.

      What a lovely film! Kind of like Northern Exposure meets Napolean Dynamite. Jay Baruchel is for sure a rising star and it was refreshing to see Alexis bledel NOT doing a Gilmore Girl redux. Schuyler Fisk is also amazing and sings her music beautifully in the movie. The soundtrack was very impressive with interesting choices that spanned a qide variety of genres. Spot On! I would recommend this film for sure, it's one of those indie films that slipped under the radar onlt to be re-discovered by the masses. Check it out~!

      I haven't seen an independent film in a while until I watched this movie. It's pretty good. I got a little confused towards the middle of the movie in one scene when the projector malfunctions.(If you watch the movie, you'll know what I mean) But other than that, it's good. Performances were good as well.
