Like I’ve said before, I tend to be a fan of independent films, and sometimes the under dogs. I can appreciate a film even when it’s not perfect. Not knowing much about the Ashley’s Ashes, other than what is in the description, I was keeping an open mind, but was honestly a bit worried. Thankfully, it went much better than expected. Way better! The story line is funny, and yes, at times a bit over the top, but with this great cast, it works! I found Ashley’s Ashes to be a very entertaining movie, and well worth my time. Overall the story is rather touching. I recommend watching it. In fact I plan to watch it again with my husband soon.
The film is “unrated”. In my opinion, with only mild profanity and little adult content, it’s a movie for the PG-13 and up audience.
