HOW I DUMPED MY EX-BOYFRIEND’S BODY: This piece of local cinema magic was crafted by production crew Fat Foot Films and it is awesome. Let me be clear, this movie was made for a specific type of viewer; f you’re looking for a regional version of a Michael Bay film, you’re out of luck. But if you’re looking for a hilariously dark comedy, this is your huckleberry. I should also make it clear that I’m not just saying it’s great because I support all things Worcester. If that was the case, I’d find a more grandiose way of saying, “It was ok.” I take my low-budget films really seriously, and this movie genuinely rules. I am cynical as hell and I couldn’t stop laughing beer all over my sweatshirt while watching it. The Maxine/Shae combination of Meredith Phillips and Vanessa Leigh is genuinely funny, and I have to say that Josh Pineo as Tony the Fixer is amazing. As Shae would say, “This is so [effed] up.” It is and it’s fantastic.
