Honolulu Star-Advertiser film critic Burl Burlingame says the movie is “Undeniably funny.” Impressed by the quality of the all-Hawaii production team, he adds “… in sheer filmmaking technique, it’s a masterpiece.”
Entertainer and Honolulu Midweek reporter Kaleo Pilanca observes “This movie is for everybody or anybody who wants to laugh and not take life too seriously.” Asked if he would buy the DVD, he replies “Yes. I would send it to all my relatives who live on the mainland. This would help them with homesickness.”
Regarding the motion picture Soundtrack in his Island Mele column, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s Jon Berger raves “‘Get A Job’ sings with fun, creativity, and versatility.”
Maui Time’s Anu Yagi states “GET A JOB” has broken boundaries, proving it’s possible to create a quality Hawaii story, by Hawaii people.” She continues, “From the flicker of the first few frames, “GET A JOB” is going to change everything anyone’s ever thought about locally made films.”
“(Writer/director) Kohne took inspiration from vintage screwball comedies like ‘It’s a Mad Mad World,’ where chaos is the starting point and things get crazier from there,” reports Maui News film critic Rick Chatenever. “It’s a madcap comedy, a throwback to the zaniness of Hope and Crosby, Martin and LEwis, Abbott and Costello.”
“GET A JOB” on DVD stars Willie K, Eric Gilliom, and Augie T, Jake Shimabukuro, Carolyn Omine, Henry Kapono, Amy Hanaiali’i, the late Charles Ka’upu, Ernie Cruz Jr., Kealoha, and Kathy Collins, with cameos by Mick Fleetwood, Willie Nelson, and Pat Simmons of the Doobie Brothers. The movie was written/directed by Maui’s Brian Kohne, produced by Stefan Schaefer, and features a tropical soundtrack by the Barefoot Natives. Produced entirely in Hawaii by islanders, the ground breaking feature film previously screened in theaters throughout Hawaii, on the mainland, and in countries such as Spain, India, and Cambodia, winning top prizes in many of the Festivals in which it competed.
