'Prince Avalanche' is a comedic drama of opposites. The two main characters are likable, honest, and a little quirky. I enjoyed their disputes and eventual becoming of friends. The dialogue contains many funny quips. It's a pleasant watch.

It's about time that the indie David Gordon Green has returned, instead of giving us another "comedy" misfire like The Sitter and Your Highness (I really liked Pineapple Express, however). He's made wonderful, low-budget films which include All the Real Girls and Undertow, so I'm happy to see that he returned to independent filmmaking being that it's obviously his strongest point.

His latest effort, Prince Avalanche, is just a really fun movie. The weight of the film is the chemistry between Paul Rudd's character and Emile Hirsch's character, but Green leaves the door wide open for his always wonderful cinematography, low-pitched but energetic story and characters, and a really heartfelt underlying theme that makes Prince Avalanche a true gem. It's also pretty funny.

As I said, th...
