In the seedy part of Los Angeles, a man who writes poetry has spent six months without leaving his apartment because of his paranoid delusions involving sadistic doctors, rappers, and spiders. A woman who seems to jinx things by wanting to help is dumped by her boyfriend and finds herself penniless on the streets, and soon runs afoul of a local gang. Due to a telephone glitch, the man calls her at a phone booth trying to dial a "talk line" and invites her to his place. There they must help each other to overcome their respective problems.

I wish this movie were on DVD! Sam Raimi, the director of Spider-Man 1 and 2, and more importantly, Evil Dead 1 and 2, and Army of Darkness (Evil Dead 3) has a little-known brother named Ted Raimi, and he is the main character in this movie. He is hilarious! You can see Sam Raimi's humor in his brother, but instead of showing it in directing, he shows it in his acting. This movie is insanely funny, though it may not be for everyone. I've seen this movie several times only by being in the right place at the right time. It pops up on cable channels now and then. I've wanted to buy this movie even before the rise of DVD's, but could never find a video copy of it. Now that DVD's are mainstream and VHS is dead, I still can't find it anywhere!!! It's frustrating that this little-hardly-known gem is still buried. Even if the DVD were a bargain bin release for $5 at Walmart, with no extras whatsoever, I'd still get it simply out of nostalgia. It's been over 10 years since I've seen it last. Loved it.
