This new independent thriller Benjamin Troubles is a smart urban fairytale set in downtown Los Angeles. Title character Ben Ramsay find some self down on his luck only to be given a pair of magic money producing jeans. From smoking poker games to cartel crime bosses... Then must navigate the ever increasing amount of money along with the beautiful nova and sidekick friend miles. Trio manage to face off against Australian drug dealer Glitch i'm headed to the finish line of our story. First time director Kai Ephron handles the material well, screenwriter Lee Ross has penned a smart script and there's a great supporting cast of characters-- Worth the time... What I wouldn't give to have a pair of those jeans!

This movie has a little bit of everything: Romance, BROmance, comedy, drama, action, adventure, gangsters, bad cops, sci-fi (in the form of magic). Yes, the jeans are MAGIC, they would have to be in order to produce a $100 every hour. What Ben finds out during the course of the movie is that money won't solve all your problems, and in fact, can CAUSE quite a few. Manu Intiraymi does a GREAT job as Ben. Philip Andre Botello IS Miles! Mishel Prada (whom I had never seen in a film before) was so good that I will now be looking for other films with her in them. Everyone else acting in the film did a good job too. But the three leads just ROCK this movie! If you want to see a movie with a little bit of everything, with a way to escape, with good acting, with characters you can identify with; THIS is that film! Make sure to watch all the way through the credits!
