Review by Louis Howard | posted April 12, 2006 | E-mail the Author
Here we are taken on a journey, one that many embark upon each day and night throughout America, and given insight into the fine art of.....pizza delivery. Watching the humorous string of adventures by our pie driving heroes, we see that this is more a skilled trade than many would give its due. With "Bob's Pizza" as their hub, we join in transit, among others, eight year veteran Sheldon who has honed his craft with a Zen-like bent; the not so friendly Friendly; Debbie, who hopes to someday meet Prince Charming opening his door waiting on his chow; Tyler, the new kid; and Mang, who loves showing off his El Camino.

This curious little low budget film is directed, produced and written by T.Lee Beideck, who studied filmmaking at the School for the Visual Arts in Manhattan. He also wrote much of the soundtrack music and performs here with his band, Burning Snella. As if that isn't enough he plays the part of rookie pizza delivery guy Tyler in the movie.

What ensues here is fairly predictable and in many cases funny, as the viewer watches this diverse little crew going up against the likes of vicious dogs, bad directions and wrong addresses as well as dealing with any delivery drivers' bane, traffic. We get an education of sorts with satirical training footage on food delivery and get to know this wacky bunch of misfits along the way. This little movie isn't a bad way to kill some time; it would be an even better way to kill some time if the film was about half it's duration- it does tend to bog down in several spots in which you get something of a feeling that you have to live the job to get the reaction the filmmaker is going for. Still, its a likable movie on the whole.



Video-

Shot on 16mm film this is watchable and apparantly rendered in 1.33:1 fullscreen; adequate but not more than that as far as video quality is concerned.

Audio-

Audio track here is Dolby stereo, and is clear and easy to understand. Fine for its purposes.

Extras-

18 Minute Short Movie- Gertrude's Monster A story about a little girl, Gertrude, befriended by a somewhat handicapped/ disadvantaged man named Harry, who is the only one who believes there is a monster in Gertrude's basement.
Burning Snella Music Video- "Our National Anthem"- Humorous little patriotic video by Beideck's band.

Also included with this DVD is a full audio soundtrack CD of music from the movie.



Final Thoughts-

Drivers Wanted is a nice little independent film; though it runs a bit long, there are still a sufficient number of good chuckles and an interesting enough premise to recommend that you rent it.
