Interesting story on how this movie came about
6 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A friend new the director, so I went to the premiere, which was in a prestigious Westwood (L.A.) theatre. We all found it very entertaining.

The story was this: Lawrence Bassoff went to USC film school, where he made a hilarious twenty-minute comedy about an outer space themed Bar Mitzva. http://www.film-making.com/breaking.html

From that, he succeeded in getting a low-budget movie deal from Crown International Pictures for his first commercial film, Weekend Pass, which was moderately successful. Then Crown said they wanted to fund him to make another low-budget film, and they wanted it to be called 'Hunk'. No treatment, no script, no plot ideas. Just make a comedy about a hunk, and do what you want.

A lifelong movie poster collector, he never made another film but has written three books on movie posters.
