I'm Reed Fish
Verified purchase
This movie is surprisingly good. The main character, Reed Fish, played by Jay Baruchel, is the local radio d.j. celebrity. The community relies on his radio show as a source of entertainment and advice. Jay is engaged to his high school sweetheart Kate, played by Alexis Bledel. They seem like the perfect couple. However, things get complicated when another of Reed's ex-girlfriends comes to town. Her name is Jill played by Schuyler Fisk. Reed and Jill become close and it becomes clear to both Kate and Reed that they are not meant for each other and call off the wedding. Reed and Jill explore what might be next for them. Jill is a singer and her songs are surprisingly good. I recommend this movie for those looking for something a little quirky with a romantic triangle and some good music thrown in for good measure. All the characters are just trying to do the right thing. Sometimes it is hard to determine what that is and this movie explores that journey.

Not Worth a Gleam More Above a Double Star

The positives about this movie are: -It is a calm movie with no violence, sexual content or offensive language.
-It portrays a small community where everyone knows each others business and everyone is each other's
business.
The negatives about this movie are: -It is pretty predictable.
-The only twist comes when the viewer finds that the whole storyline is a biographical film.
-In my opinion it only contained a couple of comedic parts.
If you are looking for something simply for background noise and have something else to occupy your mind/hands during the viewing, then watch this film. It is 'that' type of film.

Nice but a little lame
Verified purchase
This is an unabashedly feel-good movie, supposedly based on the life of a certain Mr. Reed Fish. The story takes place at a little laid-back town called Mud Meadows, where Fish is the local go-to guy and radio DJ and field reporter. The issues he had to deal with are so mundane he begins to question the real meaning behind his existence. Despite being blessed with a job he is apparently very good at and neighbours who look up to him, and above all a gorgeous fiancee, Fish nonetheless finds his resolve shaken with the reappearance of a childhood sweetheart.
As this is a feel-good movie, all must end well. The hero must get the girl of his dreams. But it does feel a bit lame that after the breakdown of the wedding, Fish and his ex-fiancee can remain such good friends. It is hard to imagine that she can carry on a platonic friendship with the guy who dashes her dreams and breaks her heart.
Another lame factor is Fish making his life into a movie. This will undoubtedly tear apart old scars and make them bleed again; but then, as in all feel-good movies, all's well that ends well.
I cannot say that the acting is mediocre, but the actors do not seem to be given too much space to 'strut their stuff.' Alexis Bledel is beautiful, too beautiful in fact to make it believable that a gorgeous babe like that would be willing to commit her life to a guy like Reed Fish.
Overall, this is a nice movie to enjoy on a weekend with either the family or friends over some popcorn. But guys beware, if your girlfriends or fiancees are overly sensitive, this movie might not be a good idea!

JAY BARUCHEL at HIS WORST
Verified purchase
DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME !! I win the award for the BIGGEST IDIOT OF THE MONTH !! Yup !! It's all mine folks !! -- I'll tell you why ..... -- I got on this kick (along with my wife) , a Jay Baruchel kick ! We watched him in a couple of movies (most recently " This Is The End " , -- and fell in love with his character and in love with the movie ! We were on a mission now . I want to see him in other films . Well-- I found 3 here on AMAZON . -- 1- REAL TIME -- 2 JUST BURRIED 3- I'M REED FISH --- Well - we watched all three movies . In that order . I can honestly say that now I can't watch " This is The End " anymore without thinking how incredibly lame Jay Baruchel's other films have been ! I don't think that I will ever --- EVER go to a Baruchel film at the movie theater . No Way I am going to pay that kind of money to see that idiot ! -------- But then again- He was great in "This is the End " . Maybe that will be the start of something new for him ??? Possibly ??? - But the way I see it , he would need a great supporting cast surrounding him . Now I am just pissed that these three movies are in my DVD Collection !! Yeah -- you know that I will NEVER play them again !!-- I am selling all 3 !! Just pay shipping and they are yours !! Let me know . I am not a hard man to find !

You need to meet Reed Fish

I should have watched this years ago. This is the most heartwarming indie film with big names. I love the story, the music, the actors, just everything.
