Storyline

The two owners of the Long Shot Copies shop struggle against a copying giant, King Co.

Thus starts a series of gimmicks and a war against the opposition, particularly after they are visited by a corporate thug. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

great low budget flick
1 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

don't expect too much and you'll love it. it's a low budget film that should have low budget expectations. Extremely witty dialog, imaginative acting and hilarious dry humor make the film extremely enjoyable, so long as the viewer is capable of seeing past the poor lighting, film and music editing. the story is decent albeit a little unbelievable, but it's worth it's weight in chuckles, and what more can you expect from Luke Wilson and Josh Malina (whose work on sports night i throughly enjoyed, they should never have started dubbing in applause, that ruined the whole thing). at the end of the movie the viewer is left asking one question: was that fall scripted?
