Storyline

This film involves three interwoven stories with the only seeming connection being the delusions of the involved leads. In the first element of the film, a hot-tempered world tennis star loses endorsement contracts when the press outs him even though he claims the report is false. In the second, a talent-less woman struggles to make it in the world of fashion design or the music video business. In the last, an animal activist runs a dog-adoption agency and has an imaginary friend who appears in a St. Bernard suit. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

weird and wonderful
17 April 2000 | by (the netherlands) – See all my reviews

i watched this at a festival and really enjoyed it. it's so awkward; the movie is divided in three stories of three totally different people with one thing in common: the will to be the best in what they do.

one story is about a nerdy guy who works in a pet shop and has hallucinations of a big dog called mr. peepers who shits on his desk, the other stories are about a tennis-player with a very big ego and a business woman (sophie) who thinks she's some kind of god. her company slogan is something similar to "it's all about sophie". along the movie you watch all three 'fame whores' go down.

weird but entertaining. go see if you can, i believe it's rather hard to find.
