Although I feel the second half of the film fell off a bit from the very solid and engaging first half, it was always entertaining.

Enjoyable premise and dialogue with a story that really takes off as more characters are introduced.

Worth the watch.

Entertaining from start to finish!

Smart, hilarious and enjoyable.

Entertaining debut .

An interesting premise heads full bore down the toilet.

Even my family members in their 70's enjoyed it.

While obviously not the perfect film, this movie is funny, engaging, and creative, and far exceeded my expectations of what a debut independent feature length film can be.

Well worth the watch.

Very strong dialogue, both funny and always engaging.

Interesting characters and engaging story.

Nicole Dambro as Meg is absolutely riveting.

I have seen a lot worse and this effort from a first time Director is much better than some of the formulaic dross on Netflix/Amazon.

An entertaining, funny and poignant film that effortlessly exposes, explains and examines the cultural hypocrisy of homophobia.

Funny Comedy Worth Watching Twice .

Totally worth watching at least twice!

Dripping with biting social commentary that confronts bullying, group mentality and homophobia this is a film that has something to say and is miles from the empty calorie muck that permeates much of our cinemas and streaming services.

Thought provoking and exciting.

The movie was darkly funny, entertaining, and unique.

Original and Entertaining .

I look forward to seeing Anderson and the actors of this film go on to do many more exciting future projects!

On a second watch the story line made a lot more sense and it was even more enjoyable.

An engaging indie film with an original premise and memorable characters.

Entertaining and thoughtful.

Groupers was a fun, entertaining, and funny film that makes its statement without being ham-handed.

Taken as a whole "Groupers" proved to be a mostly engaging and entertaining romp from start to finish.

I enjoyed it and am not happy with what a group of haters did on IMDB to this film maker.

Once the main premise starts wearing thin a cartoon squatter squad is thrown in to bring on a conclusion, Its just bizarre and boring, how did this ever get funded.

Entertaining throughout, well-shot and characters that has real substance.

It all is a bit of theatrics that set on the edge of what is plausible, much in the way of films like "Pecker", "The Chumscrubber" and "Hard Candy".

That brings up a good question that I have wondered before, "Are overly long and/or confusing scenes good if they make sense/ pay off later?

I enjoyed it for the most part.

This had three qualities I appreciate immensely when successfully combined in a movie: weird, unpredictable and hilarious.

If you really want something unique, entertaining, and fresh, then this is the movie for you.

This movie is unpredictable and funny.
