"You wasted all of our rice money."

The first film from Kevin Smith's SModcast Presents label is finally here, and it's a corker. 

"In Bindlestiffs, three underage, virgin, prep-school misfits, suspended on a bogus graffiti charge, flee to the inner city in an attempt to live the plot of The Catcher in the Rye – a book they have neither read, much less understand. The story unfolds as they surrender their virginities to hobos, prostitutes and crack fiends."

Bindestiffs stars director Andrew Edison and his co-writer Luke Loftin, and Kevin Smith says that he's "ecstatic about our first feature, a ballsy high school comedy that was conceived by real, live high schoolers (who are actually way funnier than the 20-something adults who usually play teens in movies)! This mind-bendingly original and gut-bustingly hysterical first film is so confidently made and one-of-a-kind, I cannot wait to stand on a stage beside the Bindlestiffs boys and smell the room after the audience has pissed themselves laughing at their debut film."

Bindlestiffs goes on tour June 12, followed by a VOD release from Phase 4 Films on June 19. The rest of the tour dates are as follows:

  • June 12th – New York City, Cinema 123
  • June 13th – Philadelphia, Ritz East
  • June 17th – San Antonio, Park North, Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas
  • June 18th – Austin, South Lamar, Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas
