The trailers reviewed on BBspot are usually big budget Hollywood films with familiar stars, familiar music and familiar plots. This film, Moving, was made for under $10,000 and if you recognize anyone in this trailer you're either family or part of the cast and crew.

The trailer follows the mis-adventures of Ron Fervent. It's a bit of an understatement to say that Ron is having a bad day. Not only does his house get stolen, but he also gets an awful lot of guns pointed at him which is never very comfortable. To complete the day he ends up on a deserted country road with only his boxer shorts for protection.

The trailer has more laughs than the entire Adam Sandler trailer collection combined. I know that's not that much of an compliment, but consider the fact that the entire movie cost less than Little Nicky's tolietries budget.

Witty dialog is abundant throughout the production, but I guffawed when John asks a guy with a sniper rifle,"Did I or did I not, just see you shoot an ant?" Pure comic gold.

The trailer finishes with the quick-cut montage normally reserved for action trailers, but it works well for this comedy. I won't ruin the ending, but I can assure you it's not about a house.

Conclusion on Trailer: It lacks the spit and polish of a Hollywood production and could use the "In a world where..." guy, but the quality is in the humor which makes this one a winner. Score one for the underdogs.

Conclusion on Movie: With craptacular Hollywood comedies like Master of Disguise and Mr. Deeds filling the screens this summer, Moving would be a welcome change.
