Review:
It is a wonderful period in the history of the movie industry that creative people far from Hollywood can create imaginative movies in a digital format. Carter Lord, who worked in the New York film industry for years, has created a whimsical, campy, amusing, heartfelt movie called LITHIUM SPRINGS that has endeared itself to audiences from 5 to 85.

The story is about an aging fisherman named Evinrude Jones and his dachshund, Fred. Jones thinks he's figured out the location of Ponce de Leon's legendary fountain of youth and the chest of gold that Ponce de Leon left there. Following a crude map to the treasure, he discovers that right near the stream is a golf course that the owner is about to sell to a theme park. The woods nymph begs him to protect Lithium Springs. He wants to find the treasure so that he and his dog, Fred, can live out their lives on easy street. The story unfolds in an unexpected, enjoyable and charming way.

The best part of this movie is the storyline. In spite of the low production values, it is fun to watch. Because of the low production values, some of the movie is campy and some of it is very campy. The very campy part is one of the women who attempts an atrocious Korean accent. The cute camp is little Fred the dog with his snorkeling gear, and the fun lightweight camp is Carter Lord mugging for the camera in a manner reminiscent of the late Jim Varney, who played Ernest.

Enjoying LITHIUM SPRINGS is almost a guilty pleasure. It is so low budget, so offbeat and so quirky that one might think that others would wonder why you're watching it. It shows a lot of talent and exposes very little resources. It would be especially fun for young children. One of the bright spots of the 21st Century is finding talent in unlikely places, such as LITHIUM SPRINGS.
