"We can't choose our memories. The best ones just happen. So what's the point of trying to create the perfect moment when the perfect moment is right now?"
Bart Got a Room is a clever, hilarious, and unique independent film. As seen with most independent films, Bart Got a Room is not high on special effects, deep scenery, and post-production, however makes up for it in dialogue, body language, and humor.
It is a film that is very funny depending on your humor, as it is filled with random occurrences, clever lines, and a plot that makes the viewer feel for Danny Stein and his problem of no date for the prom. Steve Kaplan does a fine job in portraying the down on his luck, Danny Stein, but William H. Macy as the recently divorced, wacky, yet very cool father steals every scene he is in.
Overall, Bart Got a Room is a decent movie that is interesting, however is nothing great to write home about. A movie that is just over an hour (79 minutes) that is sure to entertain with some humor, and in the end deliver a great message about life.
