"You wasted all of our rice money."
The first film from Kevin Smith's SModcast Presents label is finally here, and it's a corker.
"In Bindlestiffs, three underage, virgin, prep-school misfits, suspended on a bogus graffiti charge, flee to the inner city in an attempt to live the plot of The Catcher in the Rye – a book they have neither read, much less understand. The story unfolds as they surrender their virginities to hobos, prostitutes and crack fiends."
Bindestiffs stars director Andrew Edison and his co-writer Luke Loftin, and Kevin Smith says that he's "ecstatic about our first feature, a ballsy high school comedy that was conceived by real, live high schoolers (who are actually way funnier than the 20-something adults who usually play teens in movies)! This mind-bendingly original and gut-bustingly hysterical first film is so confidently made and one-of-a-kind, I cannot wait to stand on a stage beside the Bindlestiffs boys and smell the room after the audience has pissed themselves laughing at their debut film."
Bindlestiffs goes on tour June 12, followed by a VOD release from Phase 4 Films on June 19. The rest of the tour dates are as follows:
