Vincent Kartheiser plays Nick who is both very entertaining at times and others annoying as hell. I guess that would make him a good actor or just a jack ass, Im not sure. But he does symbolize those people who make life fun. As Marshall Mathers says, it would be so empty without guys like Nick. The movie is pretty solid with some great lines, witty and hilarious moments but it just fell a little flat for my tastes. I would give it a 3.5 before a 2.5 so at least it is worth your time to give it a shot. All in all a pretty good story about childhood best friends and finally growing up. Some of us just take longer than others and some never grow up at all.
Right off the bat, the story cleverly introduces 2 hapless screwballs. They appear to be reprobates but perhaps they're not. A beautiful 'misadventure', the movie is tight and wacky, and the dialogue is wickedly smart and funny, nearly farcical in its portrayal of adolescent men or boys who can't figure out how to ''grow up' but have good intentions. Songs brilliantly chosen throughout the film keep up with the narrative and character development and it's interesting to find compassion for those you may nor normally feel compassion for. The grit and persistence depicted, even if through what may be at first glance, unappealing humans, wins over and comes out with pure faith and hope. My friends and I loved it!

Though this movie may had it's Cliche moments (which it undoubtably did). I felt it was still a refreshing take on a plot such as this. I think Geoffrey Arend is an extremely under rated actor and his performance as well as Vincent Kartheiser. Not to mention an excellent directing job by new director and writer Sean Hartofilis. I definitely recommend this movie to people who enjoy independent, emotional movies. I think if you enjoyed Garden State or Indie Drama movies and the like.

If you are in your late 20s, you may been there too. The economy is awful, you can’t get the job you want, and when you return home to live with your parents, all of the people in your hometown are unmotivated losers. Then you look around, you see a reflection of yourself, and it hurts. BeachPillows is about two 20somethings who struggle with that hurt. Nick is a high school dropout on probation who can’t get a job. His childhood friend is Morgan, an aspiring writer who works in a thankless job at his father’s furniture store. An incident brings them back to their childhood homes for a weekend where they see their old friends embody everything that they never wanted to become. I can’t really say much more about the story line, because I don’t want to give to much away. But I enjoyed the film so much because most people my age have lived through it. We have experienced the boundless optimism of our parents and our older siblings. So when we struggled to start our careers, we got frustrated. Sean Hartofilis did a great job conveying this generational frustration in “BeachPillows.” Though it's a story about it weekend, it's bigger story about two 20somethings whose lofty aspirations are mired by circumstance. It is at the same time mournful of the death of these ambitions, while celebratory of the strong, brotherly bond between Morgan and Nick - a bond that ultimately redeems both. In addition to the great screenplay, the acting was excellent. Vincent Kartheiser surprisingly leaves behind the stuffy Pete Campbell for the free-spirited Nick. He embraces his role as an out-of-work stoner who dreams big and who loves hard. Geoffrey Arend (Mr. Joan Halloway) does a great job portraying the perpetually thwarted Morgan who goes through Job-like trials while trying to write a book. I truly hope that others take note of the talents of Kartheiser, Arend and writer Hartofilis so they can make some more good movies.
