Storyline

Zach starves to produce an apocalyptic musical comedy. Doris and Jay starve to make a neo-noir thriller. Joy starves to write a comic book that the copy-shop won't copy because it's copyrighted to her. The street prophet starves because he has no food; but nobody listens to him because he's predicting the end of the world. Written by Allan Piper <allanpiper@aol.com>

Quotes

Bob: They're hit men, Zach! They shoot people in their apartment.
Zach: If they were hit men, they wouldn't shoot people in their own apartment. That's got to be one of the last professions that still makes housecalls.

A delightful film.
10 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

Recommended to any who have a high tolerance for silliness and a sense of humor. Piper proves that one does not need a huge budget or big-name actors to make an excellent movie. It's not exactly high drama, but if you go to this movie expecting to laugh you will not be disappointed.
