Patron comment on "The Bomber" is right on. The movie is hilarious and a delight to watch from start to finish. It will make you laugh and make you cry. (Not really cry, just touch your heart a little). Great performances by all the cast. You often feel your watching a documentary instead of a fictional movie. Reserve a copy at all costs!

Great, hilarious movie! I love this low budget film. There were only about 6 people as crew for this film and they did a fantastic job!

Shane Taylor is one of my favourite actors, especially in Band of Brothers. And in this movie, he proves himself again. He is able to display so much emotion with just 1 look. I love how he can give the death glare in one scene, a mental breakdown in another and the next he is like a little boy eating ice cream behind his mum.

"Bomber" displays how everyones family can be dysfunctional in their own different ways. Most of the film is actually set in the small space of the Toyota van that they are driving around in.

This film utilizes camera angles and shot sizes to manipulate the scene allowing the viewer to focus on certain parts of the shot. I recommend watching this film if you have a weird family relationship, or love road trip type films.

exceptionally funny road took me sometime to figure out the title (for someone who didn't read any about it - not even the liner notes). Relationships, growing up and family all tossed like a fresh salad to have this cinematic nourishment!
