I'm Reed Fish


Browsing the "Instant Play" options for Romantic Comedies on Netflix, we came across this little-known film with mixed reviews and decided to give it a shot.

Not unlike The Rage in Placid Lake, I'm Reed Fish is a solid romantic comedy with an eclectic bundle of interesting characters and set in Anytown, USA. Any little town that is. Without giving too much away, the film is set within a film, which adds an interesting twist to the plot while also nicely leaving the outcome not as predictable as you might be lead to think. Plus, you get to find out what a "Zorse" is.

Reed Fish, at age 24 has inherited his little town's radio station and it's loyal following from his father, the town's legendary radio personality, who along with his mother died in a car accident, leaving Reed with an empty home and big shoes to fill.

He has everyone's ear every morning at 8 AM...or 8:03 or whenever he happens to show up for his popular show. He also has the heart of the town's sweetheart, daughter of the area's richest man, who he will soon marry.

Reed loses his grove however when an old flame returns home from college for the summer. Will Reed go through with his perfectly laid plans?

I recommend you check it out and find out.
