Bought the movie, felt the disappointment…
I couldn’t have reviewed it better than Mike did.
“This is a documentatary for sure, though it is NOT much of a documentary on the software development process or turning out a software product.”
“The balance of the film is just plain unexciting and more a documentary of ‘how we spent our summer vacations.'”
“Joel reviews his own movie and compares it to Code Rush and Startup.com and says those movies ‘totally pale in comparison.'”
It was Joel’s own review that made me think I was ordering a movie on software development. Not a happy story of 4 geeks spending their summer vacation in the city.
Aardvark’d is not a bad documentary. It’s just that it did not meet my expectations.
